Breakaways Team Song

A Breakaway is all I wanna be
No better for you, no worse for me
We have lots of skill and lots of class
You better watch out we'll kick your ass

A Breakaway is a football star
Watch us play and you'll know who we are
We're the ones in the red and white
We'll blow you away cause we are dynamite

A Breakaway is all I wanna be
No better for you, no worse for me
We have lots of skill and lots of class
You better watch out we'll kick your ass
Hey!

There are few restrictions on where player can be located across the ground.

Continuous and free flowing football is encouraged ahead of repetitive short passages of play.

The Laws of the Game balances offensive and defensive aspects of play, where an attacking style of game is encouraged

The unique characteristics of the game should be maintained and encouraged

Player health and safety is protected via the Laws of the Game, interpretations and officiating

A priority of the Laws, interpretations and officiating is to reward and protect the player who makes winning the ball their primary objective
