Ravens 7 on 7


Ravens 7 on 7 has been canceled for 2017 due to insufficient sign-ups.

What is Ravens 7 on 7?
Ravens 7 on 7 is a spring passing league program for Olathe 3rd through 8th graders. Our program runs on Sunday afternoons (except Easter Sunday) during the spring, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 at Olathe Northwest High School. During the sessions, club coaches organize games between similarly aged players. We teach the high school 7 on 7 passing game, including Air Raid offense passing schemes, and multiple types of defensive coverages.
When is Ravens 7 on 7?
Our schedule for 2017 includes the following dates:

  • April 2nd
  • April 9th
  • April 23rd
  • April 30th
  • May 7th

It is not unusual to have one or two sessions cut short or canceled due to a spring thunderstorm. If that happens, parents should return to Olathe Northwest to pick up their children. There are no make up dates.

Who provides Ravens 7 on 7?
The Olathe Northwest Quarterback Club, the parent booster organization of the Olathe Northwest Raven, sponsors Ravens 7 on 7. Long-time youth coach Jim Adam currently runs the Ravens 7 on 7 program, and has done so for the last several years. Next year’s ONW varsity seniors were among the first to ever participate in the spring 7 on 7 program that has become Ravens 7 on 7. Last year 73 players participated.

Q: What if it rains? What if there is a thunderstorm?
A: We will play in light rain. We will stop play in the event of lightning and terminate the session, so parents may need to return early. Players can receive shelter in a brick shed at the field. There are no make-up sessions, and from year to year some portions of a session or two may be washed out. Last year all sessions were fully held. This website page will be posted with weather information if we know by 4 pm of a given Sunday that the weather will cancel the session. Otherwise, all weather-related decisions are made at the field.

Q: Does a player need experience to play 7 on 7?
A: No. Coaches will teach all the player how to play 7 on 7.

Q: Can anybody play quarterback? Or tight end? Or wide receiver?
A: Coaches on the field will position players where they will learn and grow the best. It is not unusual to play many positions throughout the sessions, and to try different positions for a bit. But the majority of the training given will be in the positions where the coaches believe the player can currently best grow and mature.

Q: What will players learn?
A: Passing, receiving, and coverage skills are complex and varied. All are taught in 7 on 7. See examples of some of plays and routes in the Downloads section. Your on-field coaches may use different position names or variations of these routes and concepts.
