2010 7-on-7 Schedules and Information

7-on-7 is almost here and we are getting ready for the 13th season of great competition.

This year the UIL has stressed several points.

* A high school football coach cannot require a 7-on-7 coach, who can't be associated with the school's athletic department, to use a certain offense or conduct certain drills. A 7-on-7 coach also can't be required to select certain students for a specific team.

* High school coaches also cannot require any student to participate on a non-school team, and they cannot arrange scrimmages or competitions between their teams.

* High school coaches are not allowed to handle the money for an out-of-school league or team involving students in grades 7 through 12 from their attendance zones.

The UIL said there has been no discussion of shutting down 7-on-7 football and no schools face penalties for rules violations — but he said high school coaches need to do a better job of following the rules.

One change from last season is that 64 teams will participate in Divisioon II (1A, 2A, 3A) instead of 32. There will be an additional 16 state qualifying tournaments across the state in the small school division.

The main rule change for SQT play this year will be the addition of a "tackle box" on the offensive side of the ball. Teams will now not be allowed to line receivers up within 3 yards of the center on either side.

The 2010 state 7-on-7 tournament will be July 8-10 in College Station
