Presented by: Battle in Rocky Top National Championship


Battle in Rocky Top – Nov 17-19, 2017

In very short time this has become the premier post season youth football tournament in all of America. If you like well ran, well organized, well respected and professionally done football tournaments then look no further because this is the one for you and your team. This has turned into like the “National Tournament” for youth football, with well over 20 states expected to be represented and more than 300 teams, you see why. Some events will call their tournaments “National” but when only two or three states are there its not a true “National” tournament, that’s more like a tri-state championship. There are only a few good national tournaments out there and this is one of them. This event is for every type of team, league champion, playoff contender and even teams w/ losing records will attend to reward there kids for the hard work and sacrifice. We feel like to have a “National Tournament” we want to see who the best regular season team is unlike most tournaments which allow you to show up with whomever. In most age divisions for this event we have two divisions per age group (American & National) to help separate the talent levels. This helps make things more competitive and let’s the unbeaten’s of the world play against each other and the 3-5 teams of the world play against each other. We highly encourage you bring your “Regular Season” team because those are the teams we give the most careful consideration too when determining what division you fall in and who all is in your bracket. We now have a division for teams who “ADD” players to their roster, we don’t RECOMMEND this but we know in some cases every player can’t attend the tournament and there are holes to fill on your roster if you add ONE player you fall in the “add-on”roster division. There is NO way to properly seed the teams who add players but we will do our best. Again, we highly recommend coming with your regular season team as those are WHO WE LOOK OUT FOR when doing the schedules. We take great pride in our tournament in properly placing the regular season teams.

We have a very friendly atmosphere with some great competition at the Battle In Rocky Top and everyone can see the relaxing lifestyle we live in Knoxville, TN. There is plenty to do while in Knoxville at either no cost to you and your team or at a very affordable cost to you and your team.

In 2016 we hosted 289 teams from across 20 states. In 2017 we anticipate hosting even more teams for this event so make sure you get signed up early as possible so you too can come be part of the action in this mega event. It will be a “BATTLE” and it happens to be played in “ROCKY TOP” land. We are working behind the scenes to assure this is one of the Nation’s best events.

Two game minimum guarantee per team (very possible you could play more than two games), we try to make sure all teams who win at least one game will play a third game, usually this happens unless a team receives a bye. Each age division will be played in a true tournament modified single elimination format w/ consolation games taking place. Our friendly but competitive format is one of many things that separate us among other tournaments. You won’t have to beat the same team twice to claim a title nor will there be 5 teams at the same age leaving as “Champions”. By using this format it allows only one team per age group to be crowned champions (per division), only one team leaves undefeated and only one team leaves runner up (per division). WE HAVE A VERY STRICT check-in process to ensure everyone is on a level playing field. We check out every single player on every single team thoroughly during our check-in, all players must have their birth certificates w/ them at weigh-in, NO EXCEPTIONS!! Two games is the most a team would play in a day and four games is the most they would play over the weekend. No team will play back to back games, there will be at least a two game (more than likely more) rest for all teams.

Again, this year we are having a magazine sized “Event Program” for everyone’s viewing and memories of the great event. In the program will be a list of teams, players and brief info about the teams among other things. You will want to definitely pick one of the up during the event.

We do match teams up the best we can based on SKILL and SIZE in all ages, now once bracket starts to play itself out then its out of our control who plays who. If you’re team is small or not as competitive, then don’t worry because we’ll do our best in matching you up fairly. We strive for competitive games, not lopsided ones.

TOURNAMENT COST: $260 per team ($210 if paid prior to October 1, 2017)… $310 if paid after Nov. 1

All paperwork and registration payments have to be in NO later than Monday November 6, 2017. After this we will only accept teams on a age availability basis.
All coaches, team mgr, etc will need to print off these forms. The Checklist form will tell you exactly which forms you’ll need to attend and when they are due. A helpful hint is to make sure all paperwork is handled well in advance of event (things go much more smooth). Please remember we will need a tournament roster (with birthdates, positions and estimated weights) in our hands NO LATER than Monday, November 6. Make sure you have your team photo in by November 6, 2017… Also, remember to bring an “extra” copy of your roster with you at check-in and be prepared to turn in along with waivers. For 2017 Battle In Rocky Top we want each team to fill out a Team Resume form (please read it below) it is not due until after Nov 1st.

ALL COACHES MUST BE LISTED ON “TEAM ROSTER” AND ONE COACH MUST SIGN FOR THE PASSES. IF A COACH IS NOT LISTED ON “TEAM ROSTER” THEN HE WILL HAVE TO PURCHASE HIS PASS! (This applies for both Kick-Off Classic & Battle In Rocky Top).
