The elimination of Special Teams play improves the safety of the game by removing the potential of long runs with two players colliding at high speed for the tackle. The establishment of equal play provides the best possible development aspect for players new to tackle football. In fact: our AYL RFL requires the specific players must play an entire quarter, both as offense and defense, before any subsitutions are allowed! The more repetition in actual game plays helps to advance specific skill development in all positions of the game.
