 * IFK: When a player deliberately heads the ball in a game, an indirect free kick (IFK) should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense. If the deliberate header occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick (IFK) should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal lines at the point nearest to the where the infringement occurred. This applies to all U11 and younger age groups in a competition.

 ** Buildout Lines-Should be marked in a different color than the field markings, alternatively, FLAT line markers or FLAT cones may be used.
