 The ETFL is proud to be the first recreational draft league to provide it's members with this exciting new style of play which combines the fast paced "rush" game with the more strategic "Steam-Boat" type of play.  This unique new hybrid style allows for more offensive creativity while maintaining a level of balance and fairness across the playing field.  Innovation, respect, and fairness is the foundation upon which the ETFL is built, and we believe that this style of play embodies each of those qualities.  For more information on our rules of play feel free to appoach any ETFL Reps or your friendly neighbourhood ETFL Referee Staff.

Thanks, and enjoy!
