I'm too old to play with you "youngsters" but I used to, and cleats
would be a bad idea.  There are shoes designed for it.  Sneakers are
tolerable as long as they are not built for jogging, with a wide bottom
-- you'll catch an edge and hurt your ankle.

My favorite way of handling this was to split into three teams and
rotate through frequently.  A particular team is on the field for two
rotations, and thus plays both the others.

You can also play six on a side.
