25 second snap count
1 of every 3 plays must involve a female player catching a forward pass, throwing a forward pass or running the ball for positive yards. A play is also considered "gender complete" if the attempt to pass the ball to a girl, or to be passed by a girl, is made. If the pass attempt to a girl is made, but not completed, the completion of a gender play is at the referee's discretion.
Discrepencies: If there is a rule discrepency - only the coach or secondary coach may discuss the situation with the officials. If it can not be resolved, stop the game and call Mike or Krystin to the field and we will help resolve the issue. Coaches, we need your help in controllling your team, please!
Defensive Coverage on a Forced Gender Play: all defensive men need to be within five yeards of the male that they are guarding during the time of the gender play, and must be directly across from their mark no more than 5 yards from the line of scrimmage. Male defensive players may not release until the ball is thrown. Male players on offense may run a route, but may not touch the ball first. Male defenders may not touch the ball until a female player has had a chance to make a play on the ball (female receiver must be first to touch the ball). **The defender on the QB may knock down or intercept the pass. If the pass is knocked down, the next play is still gender because a female player did not have a chance to make a play.
If there are 3 female defenders playing against 2 female attackers: Man to man and the extra defender must stand 10 yards from the line of scrimmage directly behind the ball. That extra female defender may release once the ball is thrown.
There are 2 female defenders playing against 3 female attackers: Man to man and the free female player may be marked by a male defender, but he may only tag her once she catches the ball or knock the pass down if it is a throw to the endzone. AT NO TIME WHILE A GUY IS GUARDING A GIRL ON A GENDER PLAY MAY HE INTERCEPT THE BALL.
If a team adds more female players to the field on a forced gender play:
The defensive team may play regular defense where men mark up on women. In this situation, the male defenders may make a play on the ball before a female has a chance to make a play on the ball.
There is no double teaming.
There is NO BLOCKING! If a play is made in the general vacinity of another player, that player must remove himself from forward play.
6 points for a touchdown / 7 points for a girl to girl touchdown
1 extra point - 6 yard mark / 2 extra points - 8 yard mark
Girl to girl extra points are: 2pts - 6 yard mark /3pts - 8 yard mark
2 completions = a first down (the pass must be caught forward of the line of scrimmage, not caught behind the line of scrimmage and ran forward of the line)
You may earn 1 first down in each half of the field and by crossing over the mid line.
The quarterback MAY run the ball on the defensive half of the field
The quarterback MAY not run the ball on the offensive half of the field
The defense may not cross into the backfield (across the line of scrimmage) until the side judge reaches the 5 second count. If the ball is handed off or a lateral is throw the defense may rush in immediately.
The 25 second snap count starts when the ball is set on the line of scrimmage. The snap count is in effect on extra points, because the clock runs on extra points except in the last 2 minutes of the second half.
A defensive player can never steal possession of the ball from an offensive player. If a ball is caught by two players at the same time, the offensive player is always awarded the ball. The only time a defensive player may steal the ball from an offensive player is if the ball is being bobbled in the air.
THERE IS NO INTENTIONAL GROUNDING.

**If a player is getting out of hand, visually and/or verbally upset about a play...the official will ask the player to sit out a few plays until he/she has calmed down. If that player 'acts up' again, he/she will be immediately asked to leave the field of play for the remainder of that game. If the player continues to be disruptive after being asked to leave the field of play, then their return to play for remainder of the season will be reviewed by the league commissioner.
Contact is supposed to be avoided at all costs...this is a social league!
No taunting or abusive language should be used. No rough contact or overly aggressive play and no fighting!
Have fun, meet some new people, get in a good work out!!!!
