Updated Rulebook, Registration Info, and Captains Meeting!
As we are quickly approaching the 2011 Fall Season I have some updates regarding Rules, Registration and our Captains Meeting. We’ve decided based off of feedback from previous captains to run a 9v9 Format this season with contact blocking. Due to this change though offensive linemen will no longer be eligible receivers. This change will result in some confusion I’m sure in early weeks but we are excited to see the new format in action.
The updated 9v9 rulebook is now available and can be downloaded on our about page or by just clicking the links below. It’s very important that captains go over the rulebook because there are several changes this season that could really effect your team. I’ve highlighted some of the major changes below but still strongly encourage you to download the rulebook yourself.
- Offensive Linemen are now ineligible and can no longer catch passes.
- Ball Carriers are ALLOWED to swat hands away when attempting to pull their flags; however you can’t hold opposing players arms, wrists, or cover the flag.
- Matching T-Shirts or Uniforms are required by Week 3
Final Registration & Captains Meeting
We will be holding our mandatory captains meeting on Thursday, September 29th at the Cecil Arena located at 2706 North East Road, North East MD 21901. The meeting will start at 7pm and we will collect rosters and registration fees, discuss rule changes and expectations, finalize all rule votes, meet the referees and discuss future seasons. I will also be handing out the 2011 Rulebook, T-Shirts for all players, and hopefully a finalized schedule. This captains meeting is a huge step that was never taken in previous seasons and hopefully we can have all questions and concerns answered prior to the start of the season. If you have any trouble making this meeting or even know potential teams who would like to come please have them contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are very excited the Fall Season is right around the corner and look forward to seeing the league grow!
