The Use and Value of 7on7

7 on 7 is a very popular summer program for many of our football teams to participate in. Some people argue its value because of the lack of linemen and a running game, for example.

When you introduce the competition of another team, a district league, or a state-wide tournament you have increased its value. I believe 7on7 works and has become a valuable phase of the season for our skill kids to develop that working relationship with each other continue to compete year round. Skills+Competition+Success = Good….its easy math to me.
