NFL Flag San Diego Playoffs

NFL Flag San Diego Playoffs: A Resounding Success

By NFL Flag San Diego, 11/16/18, 9:15AM PST


The NFL Flag San Diego playoffs took place over the past several weekends, culminating in a hugely successful Super Bowl Sunday on Sunday, November 11 at Escondido High School.  Despite the wildfires that are unfortunately currently affecting parts of California, our kids were able to get out and enjoy themselves on the field and compete against the finest youth flag football talent from around the greater San Diego area.  The kids from every team really brought their best and impressed everyone with their hustle and in particular with their teamwork.  Regardless of whether their teams won or lost, all the participants were winners for successfully making it through the season to the playoffs, and every team and participant should be proud of themselves for their success in the fall 2018 campaign.

This year’s playoff marks the first time we have offered a new division, the Silver Division, in response to feedback from our kids, coaches and parents to add a round of playoffs for those teams which may not have had as successful a regular season for whatever reasons.  The inclusion of our new Silver Division, which featured teams with three or four losses going into the playoffs, was a huge hit with the kids, parents and coaches and allowed more teams to participate in the playoffs than ever before.  The results were a rousing success, both in terms of the play on the field as well as the overall experience.  We plan to feature the division in future playoffs given the positive experience that the kids had this year.
