June 25-26, 2010

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The Fiesta Bowl and the Arizona Interscholastic Association have announced plans for the first Fiesta Bowl 7-on-7 Passing Tournament on June 25-26, 2010, and are accepting entries from high school teams for the event at Brophy College Preparatory. The non-tackle tournament, operated by the AIA, will kick off on Friday night, June 25, with each team playing four games to determine seeds for a double-elimination tournament the following day. Games are free and open to the public. Seven-on-seven competitions have become increasingly popular across the country as a tool to develop quarterbacks and receivers in a structured summer environment. The Fiesta Bowl 7-on-7 Passing Tournament, with select games airing live on www.aia365.com, also aims to provide more exposure for local athletes. Each participating team is guaranteed at least six games. Coaches interested in entering their teams may call tournament director Gene Nudo at (602) 684-7237. There is no entry fee.
 
“We are excited about teaming up with the AIA and Brophy College Preparatory to present this event,” Fiesta Bowl Chairman of the Board Duane Woods said. “This tournament is a natural fit for the Fiesta Bowl because it promotes teamwork and sportsmanship, and it will help Arizona high school football players hone their skills. We’re grateful to the AIA for managing the event and to Brophy for providing access to its first-class facilities.” The AIA will stage the tourney and provide game officials. A voluntary association consisting of 275 member schools and more than 305,000 student-athletes, the AIA oversees high school athletics with the goal of providing a fair and safe playing field for all student-athletes and coaches.

Games will last 30 minutes and be played on 50-yard fields. The offense has a quarterback, a center and five eligible receivers, and ballcarriers are ruled to be down when touched by a defender. Touchdowns are worth six points, and PATs are played from scrimmage and worth one point. The defense has the ability to score.

Games will be played on two fields – one with field turf and the other with natural grass – at Brophy College Preparatory, 4701 N. Central Ave., Phoenix. Friday’s games begin at 5:30 p.m. and will determine the seeds for a double-elimination format on Saturday morning, with games beginning at 8:00 a.m. The championship game is set for 12:30 p.m. and will be streamed live on www.aia365.com.
