Below is a summary of the G4-specific rules. If there is a discrepancy between what is listed below and the operating rules, the operating rules win.

|Offside||Yes, inside attacking 14|
|Kick-Off||If taken improperly, player is given a 2nd try|
|Throw-In||Due to COVID-19, throw-ins are not allowed this season. Instead, a kick-in is used. As with free kicks, the opposing team must be at least 8 yards from the ball. Person taking the kick is not allowed to touch it a second time without another player touching the ball first.|
|Keeper Release||If the GK throws, passes, punts, or drop kicks the ball over the halfway line without it touching the ground or another player, IFK to the opposing team where the ball crossed the halfway line.|
