Six-A-Side football is a game intended for Grades 5 through 8 football players. The game is played on a smaller field with fewer players which increases each players opportunity to touch the ball and be involved in the play. Five of the six offensive players are eligible receivers to catch the ball. The game is shoot out format similar to NCAA, USPORT, or CFL overtime where each team will gain possession of the ball on their own 30 yard line with an opportunity to score.

The focus of the league is skill development. Coaches will take the time to teach each player a variety of positions in a fun inclusive environment. As an introduction to tackle football the Six-A-Side game is superior; it allows for a far bigger skill set to be developed for each player.
