7v7 - All players are eligible receiver. 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 with this blocking style.
8v8 Air - 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. We do allow contact blocking in this league between the waist and the shoulders. You must be facing the person you are blocking as we do not allow blocks to the back or side. QB's make take the snap under center and a running game is often used to compliment the passing game. All 8 players are ELIGIBLE RECEIVERS.
