How to Play Indoor Soccer : Substitutions in Indoor Soccer


In this clip we are going to talk about substitution.
Substitution is done a little bit differently in indoor because there is not as many stoppage
of plays with throw-ins or as many goal kicks or corner kicks or what-not. So what they
do is they have subbing on the fly. And all that is one person comes in, another person
comes out; and it’s almost like in a hockey rink where they have a door where you come
in and you go out as quick as you can, so you have the same or equal number of players
on the field at the same time. If someone runs on the field and the other person isn’t
off the field yet, one of those players needs to be inactive on the playing field. Otherwise,
a team can get called for having too many players on the field. So remember when subbing,
during the first half your defense and your goal will be on your side of the benches so
it will be a lot easier for you to sub and you won’t expose your defense as much to the
opposite team scoring. In the second half, though, you do have to be aware that when
you do switch fields, that now you will be subbing on the opposite side and that you
really need to watch and be careful so you don’t get caught with not enough players on
the field.
