A typical soccer team usually consists of 11 players including the goalie, but due to field/court limitations, most institutions commonly require smaller teams ranging from 5-8 players.
For participant safety, some institutions have banned the practice of slide tackling from intramural soccer. Others have restricted the use to their competitive or highly skilled divisions. Also, in order to alleviate some of the burden on officials, many institutions do not enforce offsides.
In co-rec play, some institutions award additional points for goals scored by females in order to encourage team play.
