Socci is non-contact. Defense may take the ball away from offense when no contact occurs on the play. This creates a balance of power between offense and defense. Contact fouls result in the player who fouled leaving the field for the duration of the next live ball (POWER PLAY).
The D.I.S.C. Principle
The first phase explains the playing field, goals and how the field configuration is transposable to many other sport and training techniques.
Dimensions introduce the mental workout derived from playing Socci with a three-dimensional goal and a central-opposing power-scheme.
Each person’s level of inclusion is developed on his or her own.
The Individual phase teaches the coordination and muscle memory needed to play Socci, through an easy-to-learn routine, which includes foot bags and Socci balls. The results are quick and self-fulfilling, encouraging all to want to play Socci. These skills can be transposed to many other sports.
Playing Socci with more than one becomes social.
Passing, playing and moving with the ball, interacting with others, and including others are all aspects of the Social phase. Introducing one or more goals at this stage induces social interaction as well as the introduction of Socci’s versatility. This includes the ability to play Frisbee, Field Hockey, Roller Hockey, Ice Hockey, Lacrosse, Soccer, Handball and Omnikin ball around the Socci goals.
The rules are straight, the field is oval, and the game is fast, high scoring, and endurance enhancing.
Due to Socci’s unique field and goal shapes, the Competitive phase brings out “New Thought Strategies” never used in conventional sports before. Self-regulation and conflict management are the goals of Socci’s competitive intro.
