This is a birth year tournament. Click here to visit our Age Chart if you have any questions.
For example, all players competing in the 8U division MUST have been born in 2010 or after.
All players must have been 8 years of age or younger last year.
This also means that they will be 9 sometime in this calendar year yet they can still compete in the 8U division.
FORMAT & STYLE
One of the main goals of this event is creating parity amongst the competition. Yet, the challenge is that there are so many different levels of teams. It's hard to say whether your team should sign up in the competitive or the recreational division. It all depends on who are all of the teams who have signed up.
Therefore, instead of asking coaches which division they "think" they should be in, we let gameplay make that decision for us. We take all of the teams who signed up for a division and place them into a three-game round robin format of pool play. Then, based off of field performance between the teams, (records, point differential, etc.) we separate the teams into two divisions for the tournament playoffs. We create BOTH a competitive and recreational playoff bracket.
Typically the top half of each division will advance into a COMPETITIVE single elimination bracket. The winners of this division will receive a PAID BID to the National Flag Football Championships.
The bottom half of each division will advance into a RECREATIONAL single elimination bracket. The winners of that division will receive individual Tournament Champion awards! The goal of this division is to create parity amongst the teams while allowing the true recreational teams to compete on a level playing field.
*The only time we do not separate into two brackets, is in the rare instance that we have less than eight teams in a division.
If we have an odd team division, say 10 teams, we reserve the right to modify the playoff brackets. We may move 6 teams up and 4 teams down or vice versa. You will know this decision prior to beginning tournament play.
We do our best to provide you with the very best in officiating when it comes to tournament play.
