GAME INFO

Bubble Soccer is all fun and games. So therefore, we have the following information below in order to creating a fun and safe memorable experience:

  • Be a good sport

  • Players who are injured, with medical condition, pregnant or suffering from any other form of physically limiting illness are not recommended to play

  • Do not bump onto people that are not in the bubble

  • Do not jump or stand on the bubble suits. There is a potential risk of injury

  • Do not kick or interfere with the bubbles on purpose

  • Players are to bump from the sides of the bubble, not from the top. This will avoid a head to head collision with the opponent. Player(s) will be warned and remove from the game by the referee if this rule is not followed

  • Bubble suits are to remain in the designated playing field. Any negligence such as deliberately kicking the bubble suit, a player failure to remove any sharp objects ie jewelries or clothing with sharp accessories, that results into damaging the bubble suit, a $600 damage fee (per damaged suit) will be charged to the event planner

  • Please keep head / hands inside the bubble suit while playing. Wear the equipment properly at all times

  • Respect the venue and the equipment. Silicon Valley Bubble Soccer is not liable for any damages done to the venue. If any damages are done to Silicon Valley Bubble Soccer's equipment due to negligence, additional charges will apply and the host of the event will cover the additional cost

BEFORE THE GAME

  • All personal belongings such as a watch, phone, keys, pointy rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, fashion belt w/ sharp corners, and badges should be taken off. Silicon Valley Bubble Soccer is not responsible for any lost / broken items in result of participating in the sport / venue

  • Sunglasses and glasses must be remove. The eye-wear will come off and get stepped on, it will also become a projectile inside the bubble and potentially poking your eyes / face, which will cause injury

  • CLEATS are not allowed as they may puncture the bubble suit. Instead, you can use tennis shoes or play barefoot

  • We will give a short safety briefing before the game starts, all players are required to arrive on time at the venue. Any player who has missed the safety briefing will need to notify us before playing

  • Mouth should be clear from food or chewing gum prior to getting into the bubble suit and during play

  • We recommend warming up once you're in the bubble to get a feel of the bubble suit and get acquainted with bumping, falling, and getting up

DURING THE GAME

  • DO NOT bump into players who are already on the ground

  • ​DO NOT run a 100% full on charge from the back and side of the player; just bump the player(s) enough that they fall down / get the soccer ball
     

  • DO NOT play over-aggressively. Our referees will impose these rules strictly and will remove the aggressor from the game until cleared to play again from the referee, host, and (parent)
     

  • ​​DO NOT lean forward head to head when bumping. Always bump from the sides of the bubble suit
     

  • ​WEAR the bubble suit correctly; keep head and hands inside at all times when in the bubble suit
     

  • There are boundaries; if the soccer ball is out of reach PLEASE WAIT for our staff to pick it up and throw it back in the game.
     

  • LISTEN to the whistle from the referee to stop/start the game

  • Bubble Soccer lasts about 5-7 minute rounds and players rotate after each round. Warmer days typically have shorter rounds due to the heat

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

  • All players should wear appropriate sports clothing and tennis shoes to minimize risk of injury

  • Contact lenses are ideal and prescriptive swimming goggles are an option. Corrective glasses / sunglasses are not recommended as this is a contact sport; these can puncture the bubble and also may cause injury to yourself
     

  • Knee pads may be preferred by players. So when you fall, you would be rolling onto your knees to get up
     

  • For those with long hair, wear hair tie
     

  • Bring bottled water
