What's The Difference Between Recreational & Competitive Divisions?
Recreational division play is for teams participating with their current NFL Flag league roster. Players on the tournament team roster must match the league roster. NO GUEST PLAYERS ALLOWED. Roster verification will be conducted by the tournament prior to any team being accepted into this division.
Competitive division play is for teams who have recruited players to participate on the team and expect to play in the most competitive division in the tournament. The tournament reserves the right to create multiple divisions based on the number of registrations and the competitiveness of the teams.
How Are Age Divisions Determined?
Age Group is determined by the age of the oldest player on your roster as of January 1st of the current year. For example if your older player is 10 on January 1st of this year, your team is in the 10U age group.
