By Hard Count Athletics, 05/10/19, 11:45AM PDT


Hard Count Athletics (HCA), the nation’s leading youth flag football organization, recently returned 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’s long and successful history of bringing youth flag football tournaments and skills camps to youth players of all ages throughout the country, including a number of successful youth flag football tournaments previously held in Las Vegas, was only amplified by the tremendous success of this most recent event. Teams from across the country participated in both the 5v5 and 7v7 formats and teams from Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada were successful in winning their respective age groups. In doing so, they also secured bids into the 2019 HCA nationwide youth flag football championship that will take place on June 16thin San Diego.  

The Las Vegas event was a huge hit with both the players who participated as well as their parents and coaches, and this marked yet another successful chapter in HCA’s long history of successful tournaments and other youth sporting events in Las Vegas. Next up on the 2019 HCA nationwide youth flag football tournament circuit are stops in New Orleans in May and then two more stops, one in the Bay Area and a second in San Diego for additional qualifying tournaments before the 2019 HCA national championships.
