6th/7th/8th Grade Program
 

Playing time goal is to play each player as much as possible for their position, size, and abilities to best develop the player P.L.A.Y. playing time minimums (Not a SWML rule):

Each Player will start at a position in either the first or second half (offense or defense). One exception is if they are alternating with another player running in plays. Each Player will play a minimum of 10 plays (special teams is included) This minimum may be reduced due to disciplinary actions, missing practice, and lack of effort. If there is reduction due these reasons the coach will discuss with player prior to the reduction. A player does NOT have to have an offensive and defensive position
