- We encourage outdoor team to split into 2 futsal teams. A sister team is created from an outdoor team that split into two or more futsal teams. If you have a sister team in the league, you may borrow players from the sister team during regular season play.
- You may only use a sister team player to bring your roster to 6 players including a goalkeeper.
- Goalkeepers may play for the sister team regardless of players available. However, if the sister team has more than 6 players, the goalkeeper must play in goal at all times when on the court for the sister team.
- Rosters are frozen during playoffs. Players cannot use sister team players, with the exception of a goalkeeper who must play in goal.

- The only exception to sliding, is if the goalie attempts to make a legal save at a players feet. Also, a player can slide when there is no opponent close by. This usually occurs when a player is attempting to save a ball from going out of bounds.
- GOALKEEPERS CANNOT PUNT OR DROP KICK THE BALL.
