Another variation on football, played mainly by British schoolchildren.

Teams: The players are split into two teams; the goalkeeper and the rest.

Objective: The outfield players must put the ball into the goal, but they may only score with headers (goals scored with the head) and volleys (goals scored without the ball hitting the ground).

Scoring: The outfield team scores one point for every header or volley they score with. The goalkeeper scores points for either every shot that goes wide OR for every ball he/she catches. The goalkeeper gets the choice of wides or catches before the game begins.

Game duration: The game lasts until one team reaches are predetermined number of points, usually 11.

Referee: Controversially, the goalkeeper acts as referee although unless the outfield is extremely violent, or stupid, there aren't many fouls.
