    Mini Mite (8U) division aka “Junior Tackle” uses the NFHS rule book as its base and employs the following adjustments:

    - A 5th quarter scrimmage style format game begins our play where each team is given opportunity to play offense and defense in a controlled coach on the field format. No score is kept in this game. The 5th quarter lasts 30 minutes and then the regular mini mite game.
    - One coach is allowed on the field on both offense and defense.
    - Games are played in four 8-minute quarters
    - There are no kickoffs in Junior Tackle.
    - The game begins and restarts after a score with the ball on the 40-yard line.
    - The punt is introduced, but no rush is allowed.
    - There are no fake punts.
    - The punted ball may not be returned for yardage by the receiving team.
    - The kicking team shall not cover the punt nor send players downfield.
    - Blitzing is not allowed.
    - No more than seven (7) players on line.
    - Linebackers play three (3) yards off line.
    - All linemen must be down in a 3 or 4 point stance.

    The goal of junior tackle is to introduce the game of football in an environment that allows the progression of skill and knowledge before advancing to conventional tackle football.
