Passing

  • All passes must be from behind the line of scrimmage, thrown forward and received beyond the line of scrimmage.
  • Shovel passes ARE allowed but must be received beyond the line of scrimmage.
  • The quarterback has a 7- second “pass clock”. If a pass is not thrown within the 7- seconds, the play is still LIVE. A penalty flag will be thrown but the play continues (just in case the defense intercepts the ball).
  • 14u & 17u divisions: QB will have 5 seconds to throw the ball.
  • After the play has been completed, if the defense did not intercept the ball, the ball will be placed at the original LOS.
  • Once the ball is handed off, the 7-second or 5-second rule is NO LONGER in effect.
