LANGUAGE
We want all players to watch there language while at the playing field. These are parks were families bring there children  and we won't tolerate profanity.

PLAYING FIELD
The playing field is 60yards long by 25yards wide. End zones are 5yards long and 25yards wide.

TEAMS ARE TO PROVIDE THEIR OWN FLAGS

DOWNS
Since there are no kickoffs each series starts at the 5yrd line. You get 5 downs to go 60yards
(score a TD) with no 1st downs, unless you get a 1st down through an opponent penalty.

PENALTIES
Penalties are assessed through downs. Only pass interference is assessed through yards, which is the spot of the penalty. If you are at 1st down and there is a
penalty
against the defense the offense would then have double 1st down.

TEAMS
Each team must field at least 5 players with no more than 12. Every player must bring a copy of their ID with proof of age. Players must be 18 or older to play.

FORFEIT GAMES
If you forfeit a game your week 7 & 8 game fees ($60) will be used to cover the forfeit. You must then put that $60 back in by your next game. 2 forfeits and your season
is over.

MOTION
No more than one player at a time is allowed to go in motion before the ball is snapped.

FORMATIONS
On offense you have a quarterback and 4 receivers. 1 player has to snap the ball (the center). You
can use any formation you want example: 1QB, 1center, 3 wrs:, or 1QB, 1center, 1 tight end, 2 wrs:
1QB, 1center, 1 tight end, 1 running back, 1 wr: You can use any variety you want but you have to
have a quarterback and a center. On defense you can use any combination you like example: 2
de's, 1 lb, 2 cbs: or 2 de's, 3 cbs: or 3 de's and 2 cbs.

BLOCKING
Blocking down field is allowed with arms extended. Defensive backs can bump receivers only at the line of scrimmage.

BEGIN PLAY
There is no indication before the ball is snapped to begin play. Play begins on the center's snap. Only quarterback can field snaps that hit the ground or go over his
head. If quarterback touches it and it hits the ground the ball is dead. QB can not be under center

PUNTS
As soon as the ball is snapped everyone is eligible to run down field. If the punt is blocked and goes out of bounce in the endzone it is a safety.
There is no blocking down field on punts. If the punt hits the ground it is dead at that spot

PUNT RETURN
No contact with punt returner till ball is caught (Double First down for running into returner)

BACKWARD PASS
When the ball is snapped the only backward pass allowed will be behind the QB. It is illegal to throw the ball forward behind the line of scrimmage and then throw it
forward again.

FUMBLES
Once the ball hits the ground it is dead. If the ball is fumbled into the endzone its spotted where the runner lost the ball. On bad snaps either infront or over qb's head
the ball is live. Only qb can field the ball cleanly, ball hits qb and drops at anytime the ball is dead where he touches it. If defender touches the ball on a bad snap it is
dead where he touches it.
