Indirect Attack
See "Attacking" & "Direct Attack".

Indirect Kick
A type of "free kick" given after minor fouls such as obstruction. On an indirect kick, another player (on either team) must touch the ball before a goal can be scored. (See "Free Kick" & "Fouls").

Indirect Kick Foul
See "Fouls".

Injuries
If a player is injured, play will continue until the whistle is blown. The referee will stop the game if a child appears to be seriously hurt or if there is blood. If the game is stopped for injury, you should have your players immediately stop and sit or kneel down where they are. It is recommended that each coach become familiar with the proper procedures in the event of an injury. An injured player should sit out and receive appropriate treatment.

Injury Time
See "Stoppage Time".

Inside of Foot Hook
(aka "Cutback"). See "Cutback".

Inside of Foot Pass
This pass is most often struck with the rear of the arch (under the anklebone) and is called a "push pass" if there is a follow through, as opposed to a jabbing motion. It is the most accurate and most frequently used pass. A pass can also be made with the front of the inside-of-foot, but that pass is more difficult, because it is struck with a smaller area of the foot and it is more difficult to keep the foot rigid while striking the ball. By comparison, the area under the anklebone is a larger, firmer surface. (See "Push Pass").

Instep
(aka "Laces"). See "Laces".

Inswinger
(aka "Banana Kick"). See "Banana Kick".
