By Hard Count Athletics, 04/16/19, 9:15AM PDT


Hard Count Athletics (HCA), one of the nation’s leading youth sports organizations, will return to Las Vegas on April 27th and 28th with the third installment in the 2019 Hard Count Athletics national youth flag football tournament series. HCA has a successful history of bringing youth flag football tournaments and skills camps to youth players of all ages throughout the country, including a number of previously successful youth flag football tournaments in Las Vegas.  Not only will this be a return to familiar ground for our coaches, players, and parents, but it will offer the opportunity for teams from across the western United State to sharpen their skills against some of the best competition around. Given the successful history that HCA has had with extremely successful tournaments in Las Vegas, the 2019 Hard Count Athletics Las Vegas Tournament is sure to be a success.  Registration is still open until April 19th, so register your son or daughter’s team today before all spots are full.  

Details Regarding The 2019 HCA Las Vegas Tournament

The Las Vegas Tournament will be the third stop on our nationwide circuit after previous successful stops in Hawaii and Los Angeles in January and February.  Las Vegas has been the site of some of our most successful prior tournaments, most recently having been a stop on our Best in the Nation tournament series in 2018 that culminated in a championship game in Dallas in a 12,000-person stadium at the practice facility of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys in July 2018.  The 2019 Las Vegas tournament will take place on April 27th - 28th at Charlie Frias Park and All-American Park.  It will feature play in two different formats, 5v5 and 7v7. In the 5v5 tournament, we will feature play in the following age groups: 6u, 7u, 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u, 13u and 14u. The 7v7 format will feature competition in the youth, 10u, 12u, 14u, 15u, and high school divisions.

There is a four-game guarantee for every team that participates in the tournament. The tournament will consist of two days of play; each participating team will take part both days.  The first day will consist of a three-game round robin format in which each youth flag football team will play against three other participating teams in the same age group.  The results of the round robin on Saturday, April 27th will determine seeding for a single elimination tournament to take place the next day against the other participating teams in the same age group.  The champions in each age group will receive not only team awards, but also a paid bid into the 2019 HCA National Championship tournament in San Diego, on June 16th, 2019.

Other Stops in the 2019 HCA National Tournament Series

After Las Vegas, we will have stops in New Orleans at the New Orleans Saints training facility on May 18th and in the Bay Area on May 11th and 12th.  The final qualifier will take place in San Diego on June 14th and 15th at Southwestern College in Chula Vista to be followed by the 5v5 national championships on June 16th at San Diego State University’s sports complex.  The June 16th championship tournament will bring together the age group champions from each of the previous tournament sites: Hawaii, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New Orleans, the Bay Area, and San Diego.  The competition will be fierce, but the winners that emerge will be teams fit to be crowned the best in the nation in their respective age groups. 

More About HCA and Its Youth Flag Football Tournaments

Tournaments like the 2019 Las Vegas event organized by Hard Count Athletics permit youth sports teams to hone their skills against some of the finest competition from around the country in a format that encourages safety, player participation and skills development. Competing in our flag football tournaments like the January 2019 Hawaii tournament, the February 2019 Los Angeles HCA tournament, and the other tournaments being held throughout the country leading up to the June 2019 national youth flag football championships in San Diego, helps contribute to the success enjoyed by youth flag football teams in both their regular weekly leagues as well as regional and national tournaments like those offered by HCA. Doing so also brings benefits in terms of a shared closeness that teams cannot quite build just by competing in their regular leagues together. In addition to regional and national youth flag football tournaments, HCA also offers skills camps annually across the United States.  Registration for the Las Vegas tournament is open until April 19th.  Interested coaches or parents can register their child’s team for the 5v5 format tournament here or the 7v7 format here.  If your child is interested in competing against other young athletes to be his or her very best or in developing his or her skills, contact Hard Count Athletics today at
