Free agent sign ups –
Solo players or small groups without a full team can sign up as Free Agent players. You will either be added to a team looking to round out their roster or added to a team of Free agent players like yourself.
If you are siging up with a friend or small group you’ll be able to include that information during sign up to make sure we place you on the same team.
Division preference can’t be guaranteed for free agent players.
Explaining the Divisions:
8v8 Ground – Each team has three downed lineman on either side of the ball. On Defense, they don’t have to rush but they do need to line up across from the O-Line. O-Linemen are NOT eligible receivers. We do allow contact blocking in this league 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 can take the snap under center and a running game is often used to compliment the passing game.
8v8 Air – Same open hand blocking rules as our standard 8v8 league, but linemen are ELIGIBLE RECEIVERS.
7v7 Eligible– Traditional flag football, non 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 directly block players.
