Kickoff and Kickoff Return
« on: August 16, 2016, 11:32:17 pm »
I am a 3rd grade coach and I have 4-5 possible 2 stripe players on a team of 15 players. The rules state that no 2 stripers are allowed on kickoff or kickoff return. What happens if I only have 10 eligible players for a kickoff or kickoff return?

You can kick off with less than 11 players, and return kickoffs with less than 11 players.   Not ideal, but you can do it.   Also, just on side kick if you don't have enough players.

You're right on it not being ideal! Hopefully it doesn't come down to that though. If so, gotta do what we gotta do.

Seen it many times, teams kick off with only 10 even 9 one time due to an injury.
