According to the Tucson Turf Elite League Football coach, they had three age groups that qualified and advanced in regional tournaments - both girls and boys - which secured them spots in the NFL Flag Championship.

NFL Pro Bowl players and legends serve as guest coaches.

The team's coach called the championships at the pro bowl the biggest stage in America.

“We have had a history of taking national championships right out of this park in Tucson,” the coach said. “It is kind of neat to give all local kids an adventure that someday they will look back on no matter what they are doing in life. They will go to remember that time.”

Not only will the kids be competing against other youth flag football players, they will also get to hang out and receive autographs from professional football players.

The coach said this is a great opportunity for the kids to have fun with football and learn life lessons from the professionals.

After checking out their practices, these kids have their eyes on the prize and looking to win.
