    NIRSA supports leaders in collegiate recreation, with a membership serving over eight million students. The 20th edition of this classic guidebook from NIRSA provides the latest rule changes in flag and touch football.

    The 2021 & 2022 NIRSA Flag & Touch Football Rules Book & Officials’ Manual highlights all the rules that have changed since the previous edition, making it easy to locate what is new or changed. Updated information for officials includes rules for Unified flag football and updated field diagrams that show a 30-yard line. The pocket size of the guide makes it easy to consult at games, whether you’re a coach, instructor, official, player, or fan of flag and touch football.

    The manual also offers summaries of fouls and penalties, youth football rules, and 4 on 4 football rules, and it presents the 10 commandments for clinicians and observers. It contains detailed explanations of the following rules:

    Rule 1. The Game, Field, Players, and Equipment
    Rule 2. Definitions of Playing Terms
    Rule 3. Periods, Time Factors, and Substitutions
    Rule 4. Ball in Play, Dead Ball, and Out of Bounds
    Rule 5. Series of Downs, Number of Downs, and Team Possession After Penalty
    Rule 6. Kicking the Ball
    Rule 7. Snapping, Handing, and Passing the Ball
    Rule 8. Scoring Plays and Touchback
    Rule 9. Conduct of Players and Others
    Rule 10. Enforcement of Penalties

    The officials’ portion is then presented in seven sections:

    Part I. Officiating Basics
    Part II. Game Administration
    Part III. Officiating Responsibilities
    Part IV. Communication
    Part V. 3-Person Mechanics
    Part VI. 4-Person Mechanics
    Part VII. NIRSA Official Flag Football Signals

    This easy-to-read rule book and officials’ manual reflects NIRSA’s continuing commitment to the development of flag and touch football and the organization’s efforts to keep training and officials’ manuals current and relevant. As such, this pocket guide is an essential resource for officials, coaches, and players connected to flag and touch football in various settings, from youth levels through collegiate levels.

    Audience

    Coaches, officials, instructors, players, and fans of flag and touch football.
