Indoor Flag Football is played with five on-field players per team. The team that has possession of the ball is termed the offence and the team that doesn't is called the defence. The offence has three downs to reach half or score. If on the third down the offence does not score, the ball goes to the defence, which in turn, becomes the offence and they then have three downs to attempt to reach half or score. Offence consists of 5 receivers (4 + snapper)and the coach as QB. Defence consists of five defenders plus the coach rushing. All players must wear a belt with two flags at each side of their hips. Coaches do not wear flags. A game will consist of two halves (run time) with a 5 minute half time. When time expires at each half the team on offence will be allowed to finish their play.
Touchdown = 6 points.
5 yard convert = 1 point
10 yard convert = 2 points
Safety = 2 points
Participants must consider the safety of all players in the game. Aggressive play must be tempered to avoid unnecessary body contact and the possibility of injury to opponents. Sportsmanship and consideration for the well-being of others is an integral part of the game.
The rules exist to ensure that no team creates an unfair advantage over the other team. Therefore, infractions such as interference, tripping, unnecessary roughness, contacting the passer, obstruction, offside, unsportsmanlike conduct and objectionable conduct will be called by the officials, when committed by players during a game. It is imperative that all participants display sportsmanship during a game.
