The integrity of our event is of the utmost importance. For this tournament, we will be using Zorts to verify all player's ages, through their Player ID program. Upon your required upload of your participant's birth certificate, report card, and picture, Zorts will verify and make eligible your player using a virtual player card.  

For this tournament, the fee for procuring a Virtual Player Card has been waived and will be good for one year, for any flag football event that uses the Zorts platform. 

RCX is working closely with the NFL to determine appropriate guidelines to keep our participants, spectators and staff safe. We will be considering CDC Guidelines along with state and local requirements to determine the COVID Guidelines for the NFL FLAG Bowl.

When finalized, we will post the guidelines for teams to understand the restrictions and rules they will be required to follow when at the event.
