By dej, 07/20/16, 9:30AM EDT


As we embark on the 2016 LFL/AYF football season, there are a few things we need to keep in mind as we begin practice.  There are 3 rules changes that have been implemented for this upcoming season. 

1. Completely clear or completely white tooth and mouth protectors are no longer prohibited.

2. Football gloves are now required to meet either the new SFIA specification or the existing NOCSAE test standard at the time of manufacture.

3. Clipping in the free-blocking zone is now illegal.
