All games will be played on Sunday afternoons from 11pm - 3pm. Teams compete in a 7-on-7 format and each team must have 2 or more members of each gender on the field at a time. The game consists of 20 minute halves with a running clock, on an 80 yard field. Touchdowns are worth 6 points and teams can elect to go for one extra point, or two, which is determined by the distance from the end zone. A first down can only be achieved by crossing the mid-field line.

IMPORTANT RULE ADDITIONS

Tackling in flag football is not allowed and should never be attempted. If Player A tackles Player B at any point of the game, Player A will be ejected from the game along with the Captain of his or her team. Player A will also be suspended from the next game. The Captain of player A's team is only ejected from the rest of the game that the tackle took place. Definition of a tackle is written to the most detail possible below:

It is important to know that these calls are based on the student referees discretion. Intramural referees make calls to the best of their ability.

Tackling: Any intentional attempt made to stop the opposing team from advancing by physically forcing that opposing player to the ground. These attempts typically involve a clear hold of the opposing player (arms wrapped around the player, intentionally crashing into the opposing player knocking them to the ground)

  • Holding an opposing player by the clothing or body part to hinder their progress will result in a five yard penalty. Know that if you hold a player and bring them down to the ground, this results in an tackle.
  • Diving for a flag will result in a five yard penalty. Know that if you dive for a flag and cause the opposing player to fall to the ground in any way, this results in a tackle.

This rules are set in place to provide a safe atmosphere for students to compete in. Intramural referees call the game to the best of their ability and the calls are based on their discretion.
