During Game-a-rama each football team will play a series of four scrimmages. Each team during the scrimmage will receive 12 minutes on offense and 12 minutes on defense. After the time limit, one team will rotate to the next station and they will start another scrimmage. It’s a fun night for the players to get some football experience.
We have a few general rules to keep it fun and a safe evening of football.
- Blow the whistle early and let the kids know to stop on the whistle
- Blow the whistle on all fumbles – tell the kids not to dive in to get a fumble
- If you score, move the ball back to the original starting point on the field
- Keeps spectators back 3 to 5 yards from the end & side lines. Many parents will have folding chairs and kids could get injured if they run into the chairs. Warn parents to protect the kids by grabbing the chairs, coolers, etc.
- Football Scrimmages
- Each 30 minute station
- Coaches decide who plays offense first
- We will sound a horn blast for each time period
- 12 minutes on offense
- 1 minute half time
- 12 minutes on defense
- 5 minutes to move to the next scrimmage station
- Don’t huddle for extended periods of time. The offense sets the pace, so if you huddle for 2 or 3 minutes that hurts the defense because they will get less playing time. Please be considerate.
- In the unfortunate case of an injury, please inform the press box ASAP
- Make this evening fun for all participants
