1 Player Handbook Always be respectful of parents, coaches, teachers & all other kids. Be the best teammate possible & always show sportsmanship towards your opponents. Profanity & unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated by players, coaches, or spectators. Congratulate, dance and celebrate but never taunt! Having fun is more important than winning or losing.

ACC and SEC plays with leather Wilson K2 footballs (peewee size). 1

2 Big 10 plays with leather Wilson TDJ footballs (junior size). Game Basics A coin toss by team captains will determine which team has first possession each half. Each game has two 25-minute halves with running clock. Referee can stop the game at his discretion for injuries. Each team has 1 time-out per half. There is a 5-minute halftime break. There are no kick-offs, punts, field goals, or extra points. Teams have 60 seconds to run a play from the time the ball is spotted. There is no overtime period during regular season play. Field of Play Teams play on a 45-yard field with one end zone. All new possessions begin on the 45-yard line. Teams switch sides after each possession. Cones & pylons will mark sidelines, 1 st downs, & end zones. Players and Positions Each player should play every position every game. Games are typically played 6v6 unless coaches agree to something different due to attendance or lopsided score. Every play starts when Center snaps the ball to Quarterback. Every player is eligible to catch the ball or to receive a hand-off behind the line of scrimmage. There s neither offensive blocking nor defensive rushers. One defensive player can blitz once per set of downs. Blitzer must be at least 7 yards from the line of scrimmage at the start of the play. Coach must announce blitz to Referee prior to the play. Quarterback 2

3 can run on any defensive blitz play regardless of the status of their run opportunity situation (QB can only run 1 time per set of downs) No Diving! No player should leave his or her feet at anytime. Scoring and First Downs Each team has 4 downs to gain 15 yards for a first down. First down markers are designated at 45, 30, and 15 yd. line. Each touchdown is 7 points and possession changes. Interception returned to 45 yd. line is 7 points. Pick 7 Interception not returned for TD is a change of possession. There are no fumbles. Ball is marked dead and offense retains possession unless 4 th down. Offensive Play Quarterback can run the ball only once per set of downs. No running plays inside the 5-yard line. No Running Zone The Quarterback has 7 seconds to pass the ball before play is ruled over for play clock violation. 7-second clock ends when ball is handed off. Center sneaks are not allowed. Shovel passes behind the line of scrimmage are allowed. Reverse plays, laterals, and multiple hand-offs are allowed. Teams can only pass from behind the line of scrimmage. Only one player can be in motion at a time. The player who takes the hand-off can also throw the ball if they remain behind the line of scrimmage. The ball carrier is marked down when a flag has been pulled. Runners can spin to avoid tackles but cannot leave their feet. A receiver must have control of the ball and get one foot in bounds when making a catch. 3

4 Defensive Play Defensive players cannot cross the line of scrimmage until the ball leaves the Quarterback s hands. This can be via pass, run, pitch or shovel pass. One blitz per set of downs is allowed but must be announced. If the Defense uses a blitz inside the 5-yard line, Quarterback is allowed to run the ball. Traditional blocking is not permitted. Offensive player may screen the defender but may not use hands to block. No diving for flags. A player is ruled down at the point of where the runner s flag is pulled. Ball is spotted at the feet, not where the ball touches. Penalties Offsides/False Start by either team. 5-yard penalty and replay down.
