FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
GETTING STARTED IN 7 ON 7
How do I start a 7 on 7 Team?
It's easy to start a 7 on 7 team. First, you must identify a parent who is willing to coach the 7 on 7 team. Then, that parent should arrange to organize 12-20 kids who would like to play 7 on 7 football. You should develop a practice schedule (most teams practice once or twice a week), as well as determine what tournaments/leagues your team would like to enter.
How many players can we bring to a PrimeTime Sports 7 on 7 Tournament?
We encourage teams to bring at least 10 players to each PrimeTime Sports 7 on 7 tournament, particularly in the later part of the season. Teams are permitted to have up to 20 players on their team.
Does my 7 on 7 Team have to come from the same school?
PrimeTime Sports requires your team to be comprised of players that will come from the same high school. Players from different middle schools or junior high schools may play on the same team provided that they are scheduled to attend the same high school. We require that your players come from the same high school district as this is a chance for your team to develop teamwork skills and to practice schemes that they will use in the fall.
Can school coaches coach 7 on 7 teams?
While the rules vary from state to state, school coaches in the state of Texas are not allowed to coach their school's 7 on 7 team during the offseason (see Tournament Rules for more details).
What kind of plays should my team run?
Generally, we suggest that your team should start by running offensive and defensive plays that are run by your school (or regular) team.
Should I have only a quarterback, wide receivers and defensive backs on my 7 on 7 team?
While 7 on 7 football showcases quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs, we recommend running your base personnel (including linebackers and running backs), as 7 on 7 will provide meaningful, relevant experience for those positions, as well.
Can the team coach be on the field with the team?
PrimeTime Sports 7 on 7 Football Tournaments offer kids and teams the opportunity to practice their skills so they can be better prepared for football in the fall. Therefore, we do allow coaches to be on the field with their team when their team is on offense. Generally, however, team coaches remain on the sidelines during their team's games.
What are the rules for 7 on 7 football?
See the rules at Tournament Rules.
Any other helpful hints for managing a 7 on 7 team?
Most teams use notecards to develop a 'playbook'. The center usually carries the notecards, attached to a single ring, so the players can easily see and call plays during the game.
