Event Timing

  • Football is a time-based game and can be modified based on the format of a single game or tournament style.

Football 101

  • Football is played on a field with an end zone on either end of the field.
  • The object of football is to score more than the opposing team. To score the offensive team needs to cross the defending team’s end zone with possession of the ball.
  • Each offensive play begins with the ball on the line of scrimmage. The play begins once the quarterback “snaps” the ball to himself or by a teammate after yelling “Hut.”
  • The play is over when: the ball lands on the ground, or when an offensive player’s flag is grabbed by a defending player.
  • After the ball is snapped to begin a play the defending team can call 5 “steamboats.” Once 5 steamboats have been reached the defending team can elect to cross the line of scrimmage in an attempt to sack the quarterback by grabbing their flag.
  • Quarterbacks can only run once a defending team has crossed the scrimmage line.
  • The offensive team has four (4) downs to cover the length of the field and score a touchdown. If the offending team does not score than the defensive team takes over on downs.
  • When catching the ball in bounds, a player needs their first point of contact to be in bounds. Only one foot landing in bounds after a catch is needed.
Bookings begin at 1 hour in duration and is best suited for 12 or more people.
