How We Play

WCRC Flag Football

vRotate each position played

vEvery Child will get to quarterback

vEvery Child will get to receive (run the ball)

 

2. Forty (40) Minute games

v Games scheduled for 1 hour. First 15 minutes will be used for coaches to become familiar with players, for stretching/exercise/conditioning, and drills

v First scheduled game will be used to assign jerseys, meet the teams, and learn basic drills

v Pictures will be taken the first week

 

3. A coin toss determines first possession

v The offensive team takes possession of the ball at the 5-yard line

v Every player on each team will run the ball. There are no downs, no score kept.

vTackling will NOT be tolerated. 1. Warning, 2. Set at sideline during one play, 3. Set out entire game.

 

4. Teams will change sides after every player has run the ball

 

5. Play is ruled “Dead” when:

v Ball carriers flag is pulled

6. There are no fumbles.  Generally, in fumble circumstances, the play is re-run.

 

7. If the field monitor witnesses any acts of tackling, elbowing, kicking, or any unsportsmanlike behavior… First offense: firm warning will be given. Second offense: game will be stopped and player ejected for one play. Third offense will result in sitting out entire game.  We do have a 3 strike rule, meaning if tackling continues the player will be asked to leave the program permanently. This is designed to be fun, no rough housing will be tolerated.
