Eight teams in each division (9-10 coed, 11-12 coed, 13-14 boys and 13-14 girls) will participate in the annual flag-football event. Teams qualified for the national championships by winning regional tournaments hosted by NFL clubs.

Players and coaches will arrive Thursday, Feb. 6, for a three-day trip to Arlington to compete in the tournament. The stay includes hotel, food, transportation and social events for all teams. Players and coaches also will attend the U.S. Under-19 National Team vs. Team Canada game Friday night at the University of Texas-Arlington Maverick Stadium. Flag Teams will have the opportunity to practice Thursday and Friday before taking the field to compete for a national championship. The tournament begins Saturday morning inside AT&T Stadium.
