7 on 7  Football League
7 on 7 football has become the approved and encouraged activity in the off-season across the United States. Organized by school and experienced coaches, the mission is to provide the structure for football players of all ages whereby they can develop their skills, competing in the off-season at organized local, regional and nationals events.
7 on 7 Passing League Guidelines
The 7 on 7 Passing League is a fun competitive, non-contact way to play football. It is all passing and allows scoring both on the offense and defense. Passing is now the feature offense, and thus defense, of most teams. Passing and catching take a great deal of practice to master. Participating in the NYFO offers athletes an exceptional, competitive way to hone their skills. *5v5 does have running plays see 5v5 rules.
Any enrolled student 5-19 yrs of age  is eligible to participate in appropriate divisions. All student athletes need to check with their coach, league and state sport governing body to insure that high school and or college eligibility is not jeopardized by participating in any leagues or tournaments.
A) 18U- Varsity ¬† ¬†B) 15U -JV ¬† ¬† C) *13U – Rookie ¬† ¬† ¬†¬
* 10U and 8U- (NYFO 5 on 5)
*13U- If the athlete is an (eligible) rising 9th grader he will play on 15U,
If the athlete is an (eligible) rising 8th grader he will play 13U
Teams consist of 12-22 players together with 1-3 adult coaches. We will make every attempt to keep athletes with their Fall team participants.
Input and assistance from Fall coaches is accepted and encouraged, as allowed by their governing bodies and/or schools. In these instances the Spring League will run the offensive formations, route trees, and defensive formations of their organized Fall teams.

If you are not already familiar with the CQRS pattern yet, this post by Martin Fowler on CQRS: http://martinfowler.com/bliki/CQRS.html will get you up to speed before the meeting.
