Hard Count Athletics (HC), the nation’s leading youth sports organization, recently hosted the fifth installment of its 2019 nationwide 5 on 5 youth flag football tournament series in Morgan Hill, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Taking place in the backyard of our NFL Flag Silicon Valley youth flag football league, the 2019 Bay Area tournament featured excellent competition that required the players and teams to pull together in order to win against some of the best youth flag football players and teams from throughout the region.  The winning teams earned a free bid into the 2019 HCA youth flag football national championships to be held on June 16th in San Diego.

On June 16th, the winners of our other tournaments in Hawaii, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New Orleans, as well as our last qualifying stop in San Diego on June 14th and 15th, will compete to determine the best youth flag football team in the nation at Southwestern College in Chula Vista.  The Bay Area tournament winners, having proven themselves against the best competition in the Bay Area, will now have the chance to compete against the best from throughout the rest of the country in what is sure to be an epic youth flag football event.

The 2019 Bay Area Tournament


The 2019 Bay Area tournament took place on June 1st and 2nd and was held at the Morgan Hill Outdoor Sports Center in Morgan Hill, CA, just outside San Jose.  Like all the other stops in the 2019 HCA nationwide tournament series, the Bay Area tournament featured intense competition between some of the best youth flag football teams from around the western United States and across the country.  The teams therefore all had to bring their A game and work together as a team to emerge victorious.  Also like all of our tournaments in our 2019 tournament series, the tournament was open to all comers; there were no requirements that teams qualify prior to competing in the tournament.

Out of all the teams that came out for the two-day tournament, the winning teams for the 2019 Bay Area HCA tournament were the following teams:

  • 8U: High Intensity CP
  • 10U: All Out
  • 12U: California Indigenous Athletes
  • 14U: California Indigenous Athletes


Just like the winners of our previous stops in Hawaii, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New Orleans, each of these victorious teams received a paid bid into the 2019 HCA National Youth Flag Football Championships to be played on June 16th at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California.

San Diego: The Final 2019 Qualifying Tournament


The final qualifying tournament of HCA’s 2019 tournament will be held at Southwestern College on June 14th and 15th.  For the 5 v 5 division, the San Diego tournament will offer play in the following age groups: 6u, 7u, 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u, 13u and 14u.  Just like the other tournament sites, the age group winners of all 5v5 age group divisions also will get a complimentary entry into our national championship in San Diego on June 16th.  The tournament features a four-game guarantee.  On Friday, June 14th, every participating team will compete in a three-game round robin format to be followed by a single elimination playoff bracket on Saturday, June 15th. A team’s record during the round robin play on Friday will determine its seeding for the single elimination bracket on Saturday.

The San Diego tournament also will also feature a one-day 7 on 7 format tournament for age groups for 10u, 12u, 14u, 15u and High School Division on June 15th.  Registration for the 7 on 7 tournament is open until June 13th.
