First Annual Powder Puff Game 10/6 - Teams Now Forming!

By Whips-Media, 09/14/23, 8:30AM CDT


Calling all moms - now is your chance to show the world where your athlete gets all his best DNA.  Teams are  forming for the 1st annual Jr. Whip-Purs Moms' Powder Puff Game on October 6th at HMS, so get 10 or 11 of your fellow Jr Whip-Pur ladies together and register your team by September 20th!

We will be playing 9 on 9 flag football.   We will be playing four quarters lasting 15minutes each across the full length of the field.    There will be a running clock (except in the case of injury - so keep it clean ladies), until the last 2 minutes of the fourth quarter.  Clock stops in the case of touchdowns, change of possession, incompletions and timeouts.  

Each individual squad will be paired with a second squad of 10 or 11 ladies to form a full team.  Teams will be announced on September 22nd.     Squads are encouraged to choose a theme.

Rules and penalties are listed below.  Let's have some fun ladies!

    • Coaches do not need to pay
  • Squads should find time to practice on their own. They may use the game field during football practices if it is not being used

  • Squads from both teams are rotated out after 8 downs or after a touchdown is scored, whichever occurs first.
  • Running clock (except in the event of an injury), until the last 2 minutes of the 4th quarter. The clock will stop on plays resulting in touchdowns, change of “mini teams”, change of possession, incompletion, and timeouts. The clock will continue to run for any play stopped in the field of play.
  • Each squad receives 1 timeout per half. They do not carry over from half to half.

  • If the ball is intercepted, it will start at either the 40 yard line or where their flag was pulled, whichever is closest to the goal.
  • All initial contact from blocking must be used with your hands.
  • In the event of a tie, we will go to Sudden Death and order is determined by coin flip.
