COACHING: BAA needs coaches! If you are a new coach or need help, BAA Football has a Director of Coaching and mentorship program to ensure you are comfortable leading your team. Practice plans and strategies will be provided. Coaching youth sports is an excellent way to give back to your community, build your network, and strengthen your leadership skills. Coaching applications are due in late June. Coaches clinics mid-July.
EQUIPMENT: BAA provides helmets, game jerseys, pants and pads for the pants. Each player provides shoulder pads, any other forearm, hand pads they feel necessary, cleats, mouthpiece, and a protective cup.
REGISTRATION/ FEES: Sign-ups are in June. Due to Covid-19 BAA Football has implemented a “No Obligation- Registration”. The $165 fee will not be due until and if the season moves forward. A $30 late fee will be assessed for each late registration.
Line Captain Players (Single Stripers)
In addition to playing any of the offensive line positions, tight end, or wide receiver on offense without restrictions, Line Captain players may also line up at quarterback. Line Captain players may play any position on defense. They must have a designated stripe on their helmet for all games, preferably over the center of the helmet from the facemask on the front to the base in the rear. It is fine if this stripe matches the colors of the uniform.
A-Line Captain may:
- Play Quarterback, but can only run the ball past the line of scrimmage on two-point conversions. On any other plays, the ball will be blown dead once the Line Captain breaks the line of scrimmage.
- Play Tight End or Wide Receiver, but can advance the ball on offense ONLY by catching a legal forward pass.
- CANNOT receive the pitch on a hook and ladder play, or any other form of a lateral or handoff.
- Is NOT allowed to be lined up in the offensive backfield (RB, FB, WB) or be used as a blocking back.
- Play any position and run with the ball on offense only on two-point conversions.
- Play any position on the defensive side of the ball.
- May advance a fumble or interception.
- May be used as a kicker or punter and is subject to the same limitations as a Line Captain in this position.
- If a Line Captain receives an onside kick, they can advance the ball as long as they are on the front line, if they are behind the front line, the ball is dead at the spot once they control the ball.
A failure to follow any of the above line captain rules may result in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Ball Carrying Players (No Stripes)
“Ball Carrying” players can line up in a position to carry or receive the football (running backs, quarterbacks, flankers, and ends). They can also play any position on defense.
