G7 PASSING LEAGUE GUIDELINES


Why 7-on-7 Football?

The past several years have seen a rapid growth in flag and touch football leagues across the United States, led by the influence of high school and college Spring football season.. At the high school level, where nearly 1 million students play contact football, flag and touch have generally become an approved and encouraged activity in the off-season. Organized by school and experienced coaches, the mission is to provide the structure for 8th-12th grade football players, as well as other male and female students, whereby they can develop their skills, competing in the off-season at organized local, regional and nationals events. In our league we follow this same model but for ages 8U through rising high school freshman.

G7 Passing League Guidelines

The 7-on-7 Passing League is a fun competitive, non-contact way to play football. It is all passing, played on a 40-yard field plus end zone, and allows scoring both on the offense and defense. Passing is now the feature offense, and thus defense, of most teams. Passing and catching take a great deal of practice to master. Participating in a 7-on-7 league offers athletes an exceptional, competitive way to hone their skills.

Our league is made up of 4 individual tournament dates. We crown a 1st and 2nd place team each week in each age group. Teams earn points each tournament to determine seeding for the upcoming week. Teams also have the ability to qualify for a 5th event in our National Championship!

ELIGIBILITY

Any registered youth team. Our league is based off single age groups(8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U/Rising 8th grade and 14U/Rising Freshman).

POSSESSION OF THE BALL

All possessions start at the 40-yard line. No matter where the defense stops the offense, they take over at the 40-yard line.

Each team will have 7 players on the field at all times. There will be a center, which will be one of the three offensive players on the line of scrimmage and formations and rules mirror tackle rules. Imagine the game without 4 lineman.

Downs

Only one first down per series is possible, achieved when reaching the 20-yard line within 4 downs.

SCORING

Touchdown scores 6 points
1 extra point by passing from the 5 yard line
2 extra points by passing from the 10 yard line
Interception scores 3 points, plus possession at the 40-yard line

PENALTIES

This is a minimal contact game and any flagrant contact is cause for immediate ejection. As always, any unsportsman like conduct is also cause for ejection. The Referees decision is final on all plays, there will be no tolerance for arguing, and only a coach may ask for a rule clarification. Coaches control profanity. Coaches are expected to eliminate profanity on their team.
