2017 Westfield 7 on 7 July 22nd

Recommended Posts

Westfield Middle School will host a 7 on 7 event on Saturday July 19th starting at 9 am.  This will be held at WHS Riverview Health Stadium, our soccer fields, and football practice field.  

7th grade teams, and 8th grade teams are invited.  We try to keep 7th grade playing 7th grade and 8th vs. 8th grade but sometimes we mix grades as well.

Players will need helmet, shoulder pads, & a mouth piece.  We want this to be a positive experience for everyone so coaches are welcome to be on the field.

1.  Helmet / mouth guard – We ask that all participants wear a helmet and mouth guard during play.
2. Cleats / Shoes – Players should wear cleats during play. 
3. Extra Socks – Below you will see how worn out these players are going to be. Extra socks would be a good thing.

4.
Canopy / Chairs – If you have a team canopy that would be great, also parents should bring chairs as there are several fields going with no bleachers.
5. Water / Food – Concessions are provided but you are welcome to bring your own stuff. 

6. Sunscreen-strongly encouraged
7. Gate/fee– There will be no gate fee for this event but donations from spectators are welcome.  Team fee is $40.00.


Schedule:

TBA-Last year we went from 9am-12:30pm.

 

We will try to run games for 20-25 minutes with a quick 5-10 minute break.  Some teams might have a bye/ 30 minute break but would never have 2 breaks in a row.

 

We will have a punter challenge and tire flipping contest as well.

We had 6 7th grade teams and 6 8th grade teams last year.  We all played each other for 20 minutes with 10 minute breaks.  Depending on how many teams sign up you could play anywhere between 4-8 games.

Thank you. I'm certainly interested in bringing a team or two.. just have to coordinate it all.
