RED STRIPER – A “striper” is any player who can ONLY play tackle to tackle on offense and defense. He/she can NOT advance the ball on a fumble or be a ball carrier. A striper can NOT be the last player on the offensive line. He MUST be covered by another player. A striper can NOT be a linebacker, defensive back or a defensive end.

 

Weight Policy

If a player is over the maximum wieght for their level it will be at the discretion of the coaching staff along with the parents to determine if the player is developmentally ready to play at the next level.  No player will be allowed to move up to a level that separates the player 2 years from his original placement.  For example:  a 11 year old Junior Varisty player can not be moved up to the Varsity level.
