The “big” sister tournament in Texas has approximately a $1 million impact on its local economy during its 3 day event. This is the 3rd year the event has been hosted by Wake Forest, NC. Last year the tournament had over 2,000 athletes, 300+ high school coaches and their families and fans. The local economy feels the impact and the organizers are excited about the future.
This year’s tournament guarantees each team 6 games. Varsity teams are separated in four divisions, while JV teams and 14U/Middle School teams will have only one division each. To promote team and state unity, the tournament also includes the State Championships for: 1) Kicking, 2) Punting, 3) Long-Snapping, and a 4) Lineman Challenge. All events are free with the exception of a $50 referee fee for the 7 on 7 tournament. The weekend also includes other activities for players and fans.
