U6 - U8 AMENDED RULES

These are NFL FLAG recommended and adopted adjustments to the rules that have been proven successful among NFL FLAG Leagues and NFL Leagues throughout the country.  These modified rules have proven instrumental in teaching the game in the younger age groups.

 

U7 & U6

  • No Run’ zones are eliminated. Teams may run the ball anywhere on the field.

  • Defenders may NOT rush the passer unless there is a legal hand-off executed in the backfield.

  • One Coach for each team is permitted on the field pre-snap to help their players, but MUST be off the field prior to the snap of the ball.

  • If the ball falls to, or touches the ground during the initial center to quarterback exchange, the play is ruled a 'Do Over’ with no loss of down, once per down. On a second consecutive occurrence, the down is consumed.

  • Defenders MUST line up at least five yards from the line of scrimmage prior to the snap.

  • Defenders may NOT rush the passer unless there is a legal hand-off executed in the backfield.
