Tournament Rules

AGE DIVISIONS, RULES AND SKILL PLAYER WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS

 

Keep in mind we do our very best to ensure fair match-ups in all age divisions. We set the brackets based off of age, skill & size in that order. We try to have the more competitive teams playing one another and the less competitive teams playing one another.

IN ALL AGE DIVISIONS NATIONAL FEDERATION HIGH SCHOOL RULES APPLY W/ THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW MINOR THINGS. Each game is made up of four – ten minute quarters. Two timeouts per half per team. We use a modiefied clock except the last two minutes of each half (runs regulation then). Clock does stop on all scores and timeouts. We use the modified clock so we can fit in all the games. This let’s you play more games and teams (if your winning). With the clock this way each game runs between 65 – 80 minutes. Each team is allowed two (2) time outs per half, the duration of which will be one (1) minute each. During a charged time out, only 1 coach  on the field.

Extra Points:  Following a touchdown the extra points can be made by running or passing. A successful running conversion will receive 1 point; a successful pass will receive 2 points.

Overtime Games:  Format for overtime will be same as High School.

Ball Regulation:  Youth K2 or Junior will be the official size game ball. Each team will be responsible for providing their game ball.

NO GOAL POST ON FIELD THEREFORE NO FIELD GOALS OR EXTRA POINT KICKS!
