NWISL Playing Rules

The Valpo Soccer Club 'Recreation +' teams play in the Northwest Indiana Soccer League, which is affiliated with SAY Soccer, which is in turn affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation.  As a result, many of the FIFA Laws of the game are applied, but sometimes in a different fashion.

In addition to the SAY Laws, the Northwest Indiana Soccer League has established a number of different League Policies and Local Rules of Competition that modify the SAY Laws of the Game.
