Single Wing 5v5 flag footbqall
« on: June 03, 2018, 05:35:55 PM »
I have been doing some research on the Single Wing for 5v5 flag football for 9&10 year old league.  It intrigues me but not sure how to implement in a no contact youth flag football team.  Has anyone used this offense in this situation and how did it work?

I'm just amazed there'd be a formation you could rightly call "single wing" (or almost anything else) when you're playing 5 a side, let alone that there was material to research on it!  What are the formation rules?  If there's no contact allowed, it'd be cruel for them to require anyone more than the snapper be on the O line!

Should have been more specific in the rules.  Anyone is eligible as a receiver or run the ball.  The QB can run the ball only if rushed or a handoff is completed.

I was just curious if anyone has used this in 5v5 as I do not see how it is possible.  I have read a few posts that say they have run it with much success.  I bought John T. Reed's book to see if I could figure out how to use it on a small team.  This was not much help for what I am coaching.

Is there a snap?  Other than the snapper, if there is one, can anyone from either team line up anywhere they want on their side?

Seems to me if the first player to take the snap (or simulated snap) can't run the ball, you're removing the main attraction of single wing.  But then, he can run "if rushed", so maybe that excuse is always there unless the defense plays all 5 in coverage.

Yea the ball has to be hiked to the QB before any other play.  Just trying to come up with a good offense that does not have much passing skills.
