-Game Modifications-
Offensive formation for Grades K-2 should be the same.  Defensive formations should also be the same every time
QB can't run until the defense crosses the line (after 5 seconds) unless it's a designed QB run.
OL can't go out for a pass until after the 5 seconds are counted out. 
Teams should wait for each other to line up and get set prior to play starting.
Defensive Coach counts out the 5 seconds so everyone can hear.
Score/Standings will be kept for Grades 1-4.  If score is more than 21 pt difference, scoreboard will be shut off.

-Coaches should email Brett on their weekday practice time/location/day when they have that set.  Practices can be set up at North Complex, Shawver Park, Beaverbrooke Park or any other greenspace that is available.  South Complex is being used for soccer, Waterworks Park is used for Tackle Football.

This program allows players to play in a recreational atmosphere supervised by parent volunteers.  Teams practice during the week (Grades 1-4) and then play their league games on Sunday afternoons.  Players are assigned to a team randomly so no requests will be taken.  Coaches Meetings will be conducted after the deadline and will give the coaches sample lesson plans, game rules, and a sample playbook.  They will also receive a bag with footballs and flags for their practices.  The Director will contact the volunteer coaches that expressed they could help out during registration.  Coaches who are selected will be given a $10 credit towards their online account.
