Spring 2018 – Weekend
The league starts up April 7th/8th weekend and runs through June 16th/17th including rainout dates.
We are a weekend league with games at Randall’s Island on Saturdays and/or Sundays. We will work to get the majority, possibly all, of your games on your requested time and day, but requests are not guaranteed and teams will play at a mix of days and times, as the league deems necessary.
Start times are available Saturdays from 10 am – 5 pm and Sundays regularly from 12-5 pm with limited 10 am and 11 am available some weekends.
Explaining the Divisions:
8v8 – Each team has three downed lineman. All players on the field can catch passes including lineman. Defensive lineman need to start down but aren’t required to rush. We allow open hand contact blocking that must be above the waist and below the neck. You must be facing the person you are blocking as we do not allow blocks to the back or side. QB’s may take the snap under center and a running game is often used to compliment the passing game.
7v7 – All players are eligible receiver. We do not allow contact blocking. Similar to basketball, you work to establish a position to where the opposing player has to go around you to get to the ball. You must have 4 offensive players on the line of scrimmage to have a legal formation and the QB must take the snap directly behind the center in a shotgun formation. To be successful team usually work in short passes, trick plays, lateralls and pitches. A direct run game is difficult as you are not allowed to block. We offer this fomat in both competitive and recreational divisions.
