Senior Girls games utilize 6 players per side (offence and defence) and are played on a modified field (40 yards wide x 110 yards long).
Game length is four 10 minute quarters (regular stop time)
Players specialize in positions, either on offence or defence. However, there is the flexibility to play more than one position during the season and individual games.
Blitzing is not allowed and only 2 players in total on the defence are allowed to cross the line of scrimmage before a handoff, pitch, or pass. Once the quarterback has relinquished the ball, however, any number of players may cross the line of scrimmage.
Fair play rules set by the MGFA apply (ensuring fair playing time for all players).
Mustang players are provided with a helmet, shoulder pads, game jersey, football pants, etc. as part of the registration fees.
Other equipment items are required and are not included in the registration costs. These items are relatively minor and will be discussed prior/during equipment fitting sessions.
As a general rule, practices begin 2-3 weeks prior to the start of the season. Practice time length is up to the discretion of the head coach and typically last between 1 to 2 hours. Games typically start at the beginning of May and run to the end of June.
Senior Girls’ teams typically practice twice per week and play games on Thursdays. The number of games played in a season depends upon the number of teams entered in the league for that year.
Playoffs are held immediately after the last regular season game and culminate with a Championship game that is typically held at Investors Group Field in late June or early July.
