Seven years ago, Football University created the FBU National Championships where youth football All Star teams from around the country compete in local, regional and ultimately the national level. Considered the single biggest event in youth football, the FBU National Championship has been likened to a mash up between the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and the Little League World Series.
This year's tournament will kick off on December 2nd – 5th with games in which 6th, 7th, and 8th grade All Star teams from Rhode Island will battle it out to see who will represent the East region. Teams will play a minimum of two games that weekend and possibly a third and the champion at each level moves onto the national finals with ultimate goal of being crowned National Championship in Naples, Florida.
