YFFA Flag Football team from Youngstown, OH (Cincinnati Bengals).
Thirty-two (32) youth flag football teams from 14 states will compete Sunday, Jan. 31, and Monday, Feb. 1, in the NFL FLAG Championships at Super Bowl powered by USA Football.
Eight teams in four divisions (9-10 coed, 11-12 coed, 13-14 boys and 13-14 girls) will participate in the annual culmination of the country's premiere youth flag football program. Teams qualified for the national championships by winning regional tournaments hosted by USA Football in eight NFL club markets. In 2015, more than 300,000 boys and girls ages 5-17 were part of NFL FLAG powered by USA Football, a fun and dynamic non-contact football experience for kids to enjoy the sport's fun and fitness while developing skills in an exciting team-centered atmosphere.
Players and coaches will arrive Saturday, Jan. 30, for a three-day trip to the San Francisco area to compete in the tournament. The stay includes hotel, food, transportation and social events for all teams. Flag teams will have the opportunity to practice on Saturday before taking the field to compete for a national championship.
Pool play for all four divisions is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. PST on Sunday, Jan. 31, at Beach Chalet Soccer Fields in San Francisco. The championship games will begin at 4 p.m., Monday, Feb. 1, at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco.
Regional tournaments were hosted by the Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins.
The 32 teams participating in the NFL FLAG Championships at Super Bowl will wear jerseys representing each of the NFL's 32 clubs.
