- The ball must be moved by the wheelchair--not by the hand or foot of a player or by contact with a player's body, unless it is by accident. Intentionally maneuvering the ball with any part of a player's body is a violation.
- Only two players from each team and the goal keeper are allowed in the goal zone at any given time.
- Any ball that goes out of bounds is hit-in by the team not responsible for putting the ball out of bounds, at the point along the sideline where it left the court.
- Fouls result in free kicks and penalty kicks, depending on the severity of the foul.
Minor fouls include:
- Holding: physically restraining the movement of an opponent's wheelchair.
- Clipping: contacting an opponent's wheelchair on the side.
- Redirecting: changing the direction of the opponent's wheelchair by pushing directly against it.
- Backing up: when a player's wheelchair travels backward in a straight line with all four wheels rotating backwards. Only the goalie is allowed to go in reverse.
- Hand ball: intentionally moving the ball with hands or feet.
- Illegal substitution: player entering the court without the referee's permission.
- Goal zone violation: a team has more than the allotted number of players in the goal zone.
Major fouls include:
- Charging: a player ramming his chair in to that of another player who has position.
- Goal tending: any player with one wheel over the goal line.
- Unsportsmanlike conduct: deliberate disrespect to the spirit of the game.
