The format of the ARMY STRONG BORDER CHALLENGE 7-on-7 ensures that each team will play at least four games. Each team will play three games in pool play. The results from pool play will determine the seeding for the single-elimination championship round.
The ARMY STRONG BORDER CHALLENGE 7-on-7 is a traditional seven-on-seven, non-contact passing league played on a shortened field with only passing plays from the line of scrimmage. The game features quarterbacks, wide receivers, running backs, and defensive backs. The event is an opportunity for the student-athletes to sharpen their skills in a fun, yet competitive atmosphere.
