Hard Count Athletics is gearing up for the first ever “East Meets West” National Youth Flag Football Championship at Ford Center on July 13 & 14. Only 8 teams in each division will qualify to play in this much anticipated National Championship game to take place on Saturday, July 14, after the Regional Qualifier on Friday, July 13.
Excitement is mounting as teams who qualify in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego and Miami prepare for the big battle among divisions including 5v5 (6u-14u) and 7v7 (middle & high schoolers). If you have not qualified for Frisco, you can still be a part of this weekend of champions! A limited number of opportunities are available to teams who have not yet qualified (by winning a tournament) but who participated in one of our qualifiers in LA, Las Vegas, San Diego or Miami at a rate of $500 per team. Seeding for the National Championship will be done by the National Ranking System. Teams without an automatic bid (won a qualifier) into the tournament will be seeded lower.
The format for the National Championship will be three games of pool play followed by single elimination (4-game guarantee).
If your team wins or finishes in the top three or four (depending on the bracket) during the Regional Qualifier, your team will get an automatic bid to the National Championship the next day, with no additional cost.
