KNOCKERBALL (KNOCKER SOCCER)  LEAGUE 

 

 

 

What is Knocker Soccer?

Knocker Soccer is a safe and fun spin on traditional soccer! Players step inside our plastic transparent bubble bumper balls which are designed to absorb and protect players as they have fun from head to knee. Their feet are free so they can dazzle their friends without getting bumped!

It’s simple: rules are the same as traditional soccer. Players play 3v3 due to the  size of the field. However there are no goalies so score as much as possible! The game is played in 4 periods of 7 minutes, substitutes are at the discretion of the referee.  Rotation of players to be made after each period.

CO-ED HUMAN FOOSBALL LEAGUE

 

 

 

What is human foosball?

It’s just like regular foosball, only you’re in a life-size human foosball game.  There are ropes across the field of play and players have to keep their hands on the rope. Then, you basically play soccer. You can’t use your hands or leave the court. You can slide left and right on the field and kick the ball.

Human foosball is a low-impact sport in which players of all ages and abilities can participate.
