Season Review

-Jamboree: No feedback from directors, Smokey mentioned a few changes for next year including; 30 minute games, 10am start time, parade in the middle of day, teams must attend jamboree to play in the season. 

- Game times/ Schedule: Directors liked the 1.5 hour allowed for games in schedule. Jarrett suggested 12 minute quarters for 4th grade level. 

-Rules: Punting was discussed, possible rule change would be to make punts a "fair catch" or "dead ball" will discuss this more in pre-season director meeting.  Blitzing rule: suggestion to add a glossary to the rules may help clarify this rule, this will again the discussed at the pre-season directors meeting. 

- Game clock/ Running Clock rule was discussed, some are in favor some would like to see clock stop the last 2 minutes of each half in the score is within a certain spread.  

- League Fee/Reimbursement: most would like to go back to paying their own refs & do away with the reimbursement.  We will discuss this more in the pre-season meeting

- Reffing: Andy presented the perception of having siblings or parents ref in games.  Andy will do another ref clinic for high school refs next season. Scott mentioned we need to make sure our coaches are backing off of the High School refs.
