The games will begin with 15 minutes of "practice/training." If a team needs assistance during this time, FFA staff will be happy to assist.
Beyond basic individual skills, drills should focus on fundamental offensive and defensive concepts that emphasize player movement and involvement.
The game will consist of four quarters, each with 7 minutes of running time. We will use the CYO substitution rules; each player must play at least a quarter in the first and second half. We will not keep score during the games. We want the focus to be on the skills learned and the fun.
During the first two weeks, violations other than fouls will be called and corrected, but no turnover will occur. We want to make sure children have a chance to learn. In week three, we will enforce the violations, and a turnover will transpire.
