NIRSA is very excited for another year of flag football! There’s so much to look forward to with regionals only three months away and so many of us looking forward to the national championship tournament, which is being held in Round Rock, TX by our official host partner.
“Round Rock, TX provides a beautiful facility and a top-tier staff. Having the opportunity to visit their complex earlier this year, I was blown away by the facility’s design that will awe participants, staff, and student officials,” says Flag Football Work Team Chair and Coordinator of Competitive Sports at The Ohio State University Jarrode Davis. “Plus, the centralized location nationally will offer a more convenient travel plan for any teams traveling from the west side of the country. We will also have St. Edwards University Campus Recreation, Southwestern University Intramural and Recreational Activities, and the University of Texas at Austin Recreational Sports involved with producing the tournament.”
The NIRSA Championship Series continues to uphold values like participation and inclusivity and, as stated in Our Promise, “The Series provides premier championship experiences delivered by qualified experts within a safe and inclusive environment.” With multiple regional tournament featuring a Special Olympics Division this year, there will definitely be good competition for everyone.
