The Cage of Dreams is an amateur football league for adults in the Los Angeles area. The league was founded in 2010 by George Donabedian, who wanted to create a league where players could pursue their dreams of playing professional football.
The league is open to players of all skill levels, and teams are formed based on skill level and location. The season runs from spring to fall, and games are played on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Cage of Dreams is a competitive league, but it is also a fun and supportive environment. The league provides its players with the opportunity to play football at a high level, while also helping them to develop their skills and teamwork.
The Cage of Dreams follows the standard rules of American football. However, there are a few additional rules that are specific to the league.
- The league uses a modified contact rule. This means that players are allowed to make contact with each other, but they are not allowed to hit each other in the head or neck.
- The league also has a rule against spearing. Spearing is defined as using the helmet to make contact with an opponent.
- Finally, the league has a rule against fighting. Any player who is involved in a fight will be ejected from the game.
The Cage of Dreams season is divided into two parts: the regular season and the playoffs. The regular season consists of 10 games, and the top four teams in the standings qualify for the playoffs.
The playoffs are single-elimination, and the winner of the championship game is the league champion.
The Cage of Dreams has been a successful league since its inception. In its first year, the league had 10 teams and 120 players. Today, the league has over 30 teams and 500 players.
The Cage of Dreams has also produced several players who have gone on to play professional football. In 2018, two players from the league signed contracts with NFL teams.
