7 Man Mechanics
2011 CCA Mechanics Changes
Keys For “Stacked Receivers” Clarified
- When multiple receivers are “stacked” one directly behind the other
out wide in a formation, there are no formal keys assigned. Once
the ball is snapped, officials will pick up the receivers as they move
into their coverage zone.
2010 CCA Mechanics Changes
Head Linesman Moves Downfield Upon Reading A Pass
HL
- When the Head Linesman reads a pass, he should move slowly
and deliberately beyond the line of scrimmage to maintain focus
on the receivers in his coverage area. Rarely will this drift downfield
be more than 5 yards prior to the pass being thrown.
2009 CCA Mechanics Changes
No 2nd Half Meeting Of The Captains
- Captains will no longer meet at mid-field to start the second half.
The decision of which direction the kickoff will occur shall be obtained
from the head coach either prior to the end of the 1st half or during the
mandated 3 minute warm up prior to the start of the 2nd half.
Umpire Positioning
U
- The starting position for the Umpire is on the side opposite the tight end,
generally 5 – 7 yards (but not more than 8 yards) from the line of
scrimmage. For non-scoring kicks (punts), however, the Umpire may be
up to 10 yards off the line of scrimmage.
Side Judge And Umpire Positioning On Scoring Kicks
U SJ
- When a “double Umpire” is used on scoring kicks, the starting position
for the Umpire and Side Judge is generally 5 – 7 yards (but not more
than 8 yards) from the line of scrimmage.

During Game Responsibilities
Side Judge
SJ
- Deals with all issues involving the game clock
- Keeps the time on the field if the scoreboard malfunctions (NCAA)
- Alerts the Referee of timing errors
Side Judge And Field Judge
SJ FJ
- During time outs, take charge of instructing the teams to return
to the field at the 15 seconds to ready-for-play whistle by the BJ
- Take chief responsibility for communicating penalty information,
time outs remaining, game developments, etc. to the head coach
- Acts as the apprentice to the HL or LJ and assists them whenever
possible
- Help with ball rotation, those coming out from the BJ and those
going in to the U
.
Odds And Ends
CCA 7 Man Mechanics – Sort Of
- Use the positioning, coverage mechanics, keys, etc.
- Ignore the sections of the book obviously addressing NCAA mechanics
such as throwing your hat when players go out of bounds,
the 40 second clock, etc.
- Ignore the CCA “if in doubts”, they are opposite from the NFHS ones
because they have instant replay to fix their mistakes while we don’t
- It’s only the mechanics, not the rules we are borrowing – it’s still NFHS rules
Official Conferences
- We now have 7, rather than 5 different opinions and views
- Conference when you need to, otherwise keep your distance and positions
- Numerous conferences make it look like you don’t know what’s going on
.
Microphone Mechanics
Sounding And Looking Professional
- Practice, practice, practice
 Say the words even in games you don’t have a microphone on you
- Face the press box and STAND STILL
- There is no need to yell, that’s why you have a microphone
- Speak in a conversational and unhurried tone
- Be informative and concise, but not ridiculously brief
- “Rehearse” with the Umpire to know you have all the information before
making a formal announcement (foul, down, ½ the distance, etc.)
- Basic information includes:
 Foul
 Offense or defense / Kicking team or receiving team
 Yardage of the penalty
 Down
- Use “Prior to the snap” or “After the conclusion of the play”
rather than “Dead ball”
- Never say the number of the player or the player’s position, but when
necessary you can say vaguely “the player involved”
.
