II. Slide Tackling

Slide tackling is allowed by any player in the Open and Masters Divisions. In the Classic, Gold and/or Platinum Divisions, only the goalkeeper is allowed to 'slide' and only within the 18-yard box to get the ball. If she slides outside of the box, she is then considered a field player.
