We had several injuries this past weekend, mostly broken fingers. While this will happen from time to time it should be the exception. We want everyone to have a fun and injury free season.
In our league we should avoid unnecessary contact as much as possible. Contact should only occur on the line as pass rushers are chasing the QB, and within 5 yards of the scrimmage line as defenders are trying to slow down receivers. Palms should be open (no fists) and you should not fully extend or cross your arms.
Shirts need to be tucked into your shorts, and flag belts must be secured over your shirt. No jewelry can be worn during games. You must tape any exposed piercings you cannot remove for the game, to avoid hurting someone else, or getting them torn out.
We'll be sharing more information and tutorials regarding permissible contact, and what contact you should avoid which will result in a penalty. Today I'd like to share a few videos from the Philly league. Please review and let your captain or board members know if you have questions.
