Hard Count Athletics

Hard Count Athletics was founded in January 2014 by the founding fathers of NFL Flag San Diego, with the spirit of inspiring and challenging our youth.  Our mission is to educate, encourage and strengthen them into premier athletes and exceptional people. We offer football skills camps that go beyond basic field drills, focusing on finite details of the game and its unique positions. Our VIP Experiences within the camps give unparalleled access to elite athletes and show kids firsthand that if you work hard, anything is possible.

We are the only organization to offer campers the opportunity to learn from true pros including Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers), Tyrann Mathieu (Arizona Cardinals), Patrick Peterson (Arizona Cardinals), Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers), Josh Norman (Washington Redskins), Phillip Rivers (Los Angeles Chargers), Eric Weddel (Baltimore Ravens) and more. 

In addition to the 10 skills camps we operate in 6 cities with 5,000 campers annually, we also organize training programs and professionally run 5-on-5 and 7-on-7 flag football tournaments in various regions throughout the United States to include a National Championship tournament to be held this year on July 14, 2018 at Ford Center at The Star.
