Changes for this year (2023)
A team can elect to alert the officials for an “auto punt” from anywhere inside of the offence’s 25 yard line. No actual punt will occur. Distance of an auto punt is to a maximum of 20 yards. A team is encouraged to use a traditional punt at any time from any spot on the field.
U14 football will have a minimum of 10 mandatory passes per game. A team can attempt their minimum 10 passes at any time during the game, excluding converts. A pass attempt will be considered an overhand forward pass. A pass across the line of scrimmage, a swing pass and a screen pass will constitute a pass attempt. Intentional grounding would not be considered a pass attempt. For every pass attempt below the mandated number, the offending team will lose 3 points as a result.
Kicking a convert after a touchdown will be worth 2 points. Running or passing will result in a single point if successful. This does not count towards the mandatory minimum passing rules.
