NFL FLAG Tournament FAQ 2023

NFL FLAG operated by RCX Sports allows boys and girls ages 5-17 to enjoy America’s favorite sport in the largest flag football program in the nation.  Players benefit by being active through non-contact, non-stop action while being able to learn lessons in teamwork and sportsmanship as well as learning the fundamentals of football. To protect the integrity of the sport, all coaches and league operators have passed background checks. Our Regional tournaments include the following age divisions: 8u, 8uRec, 10u, 10uRec, 10u Girls, 12u, 12uRec, 12u Girls. 14u, 14u Girls, and 17u Girls. 

There are ZERO start up fees to become an official NFL FLAG league. You must be in an area where there isn’t an existing NFL FLAG league in order to start a new league. NFL FLAG requires your league to hold a $1 million general liability policy, https://nflflag.com/league-insurance. You must submit an application and then be approved to officially become an NFL FLAG Program. 

General Tournament Questions

Stay to Play is in place to help keep registration costs down for all teams. It means that any teams, outside of a 75-mile radius, who need to stay over in a hotel, must use our hotel link to book their rooms. Not being compliant with Stay to Play could affect your participation in the event.

*The requirement is five room nights per team.*  

There are NO multi team discounts. 

All teams are responsible for their own financials to and from Regional Events.

There are no refunds. However, if the event is not able to be rescheduled, RCX Sports will provide options to the teams.

Yes, each event could be capped depending on the amount of field space, so don’t miss out and register early!

NFL FLAG Tournament Registration/Age Verification

Age verification confirms the appropriate age of each athlete ensuring that no documents are being altered or falsified. Every player is required to do age verification.  

Once the coach of a team has sent the player an invite from NSID, the player will receive an email and allow for them to “join the team”. They will then begin uploading the needed information for their age verification process to begin. There is a $11.99 cost to be age verified. 

A birth certificate or passport or state id may be used. All participants are required to upload school documents, like a report card or progress report, as well as a photo head shot.  

Yes, the age verification process costs $11.99. Once your child is age verified, they will not need to be re-verified for another tournament this year.  

No. You will only need to pay for the age verification process once and your athlete is eligible to participate in any NFL FLAG tournament this year. When you register for another tournament, be sure to log into NSID with the same log in email to make sure you are using the correct ID number for your athlete. If you have any questions regarding payment, please reach out to NSID directly at billing@nationalsportsid.com 

There are a few reasons why your athlete may not be shown as eligible, or age verified on their team roster.  

1) Your player(s) NSID may be in the pending review status and in this case, it will be orange when you log in. Please allow up to 24 hours for the review to take place. 

2) Your player(s) NSID may have been rejected and is awaiting a change or more information. If so, the NSID will be red, and you can view the reason on your Dashboard or on the player’s NSID. 

In either case, we encourage you to check your athlete’s status with NSID by reaching out to customer service at admin@nationalsportsid.com 

Once you have created a team in NSID, you will be directed to your team view page. Once there, you will see a “invite player” button at the top of the page. You will enter each player/player’s parents email address. This will send an email to the player/parent of the player for them to accept. This will place the athlete on your roster.  

The team page will turn green and state “Team Verified” with the division the team is eligible for.

Yes, all coaches will need to complete their background check and concussion certification through this portal: background check/concussion protocol 

$20, the certification and background check will last you for 1 year. 

Teams must be a part of a verified NFL FLAG League in order to participate in any regional tournaments. If you are interested in starting a league, please visit this link to find out how to start your own NFL FLAG League. 

Team Registration is $375 per team during our early registration period and $475 per team during our late registration period. Please be sure to check the individual tournament page for detailed timelines on early and late registration 

NFL FLAG Regional Tournament Series

NFL FLAG Regional Tournaments will be for official NFL FLAG Participants ONLY. The kick-off weekend will take place at the NFL DRAFT in Kansas City (NFL FLAG Super Regional) on April 28-April 29. This event will have OPEN Borders for any official NFL FLAG Program to participate. Following this event NFL FLAG Regionals will take place, spread out across the country, throughout the rest of the year. All NFL FLAG Regionals will adhere to the NFL FLAG “closed borders” policy. 

Each team is guaranteed three games. The top 50% of teams advance to single elimination playoffs. The winners of each division in each tournament qualify for the NFL FLAG Championships at the Pro Bowl Games. Some Regionals may be one day, and others are two days depending on the anticipated number of registered teams.  

If there are only two teams, you will play a best of three (first team to win two games). If there are three teams in your division, you will play each other teams once. From there, all three teams will go directly into bracket play. If there are an odd number of teams higher than 3, one team in that division will be randomly selected to play a fourth pool play game. The fourth pool play game does count towards overall standings. 

“Open Borders” applies to NFL FLAG Super Regionals and means that any active NFL FLAG Program in the country can attend the Tournament, and you are not restricted to only your region. In 2023 we have four Super Regionals 

Closed Borders means that any NFL FLAG Program in the region can attend the event, and only teams from within that region are eligible to attend. 

Only Canadian Teams, with their entire roster residing in Canada, are eligible to play in Canadian Regional Tournaments. NFL FLAG Leagues from Canada are not eligible for US Regionals. Please see the 2023 Canadian Regional Schedule HERE
