Running with ball carrier

Players must stop once the ball is being advanced.  This applies to both the offense and the defense if an interception has occurred.  If a player runs alongside the ball carrier and the referee determines that runners are impeding the opposing team from pulling the flag, a spot foul is called.  This penalty occurs at the discretion of the referee if it is determined that running with the ball carrier has impeded the opposing team from pulling the flag.

28Pt Mercy Rule

will be mandatory for Rookie and Junior .  Senior groups may opt out of the mercy rule.  Occurs when a score reaches a 28-point differential. The following mercy rule guidelines go into effect and will remain in effect until the score does not exceed 14 points

Teams needs to report to the referee 5 minutes before the start of game for inspection of required equipment. (Before National Anthem).   Touchdown is where the offensive player’s feet are not the ball.  Coaches are allowed on the field for any age brackets.  However, coaches should move to the sidelines before the ball is snapped.                  


Dead Ball/Safety

When the ball carrier touches the ground with his or her hand, arm, or knee the ball is dead. 

No Safety will be awarded when ball is snapped over the QB. If A ball is handed off and fumbled in the Endzone a safety will be awarded.
