Description

Future success!

This competitive offseason game can help get teams ready to play under Friday night lights. Finger-tip & one-hand catches. Diving-interceptions. A quarterback threading the needle. The action on the football field is what draws players to the sport in the fall season. But the game now extends to the offseason as teams participate in 7-on-7 football.

It’s similar to what you would see during a regular-season game, but the game is stripped down. Players don’t wear pads and there are no offensive or defensive lines. Offensive players are considered down when they are touched below the neck by a defender. (Two hand touch 8u-12u , One hand touch 13u-14u)

Seven-on-7 is something you can set up at practice during the season to work on your team’s passing game.But it is also a fun and competitive event that we use in the offseason in order to go ahead and continue working on our passing game without equipment.

A+ potential

For football teams looking to continue improving their skills, synergy and camaraderie in a competitive setting during the offseason, try playing in a 7-on-7 league Like CTYPL.

Teams can use the 7-on-7 for more than just offseason competition. By adding 7-on-7 drills to your practice during the season, you can be ready to pass the ball with confidence in game-changing situations.
