Placer Valley Tourism is thrilled to announce they are teaming up with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy to bring the World Youth Football Championship Bay Area Regional to Placer Valley.

This exciting event will take place on Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 in Rocklin.

Teams from all throughout California will arrive in the morning on Friday, Nov. 30 for weigh-ins and official registration at Rocklin Park Hotel.

The first-round games will be played on Friday afternoon from 4 to 9:45 p.m. at Rocklin and Whitney High Schools. On Saturday and Sunday round robin and championship games will be played at Rocklin High School starting at 8 a.m. each day.

The tournament showcases players as young as 8-years-old up to 14-years-old with a two-bracket format that features unweighted and weighted divisions.

Canton Calling

The top eight teams will move on to the World Youth Championship that will take place in Canton, Ohio at the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Dec. 13-16. Canton is calling and these teams are ready for the challenge!

“What makes the World Youth Football Championship so great is that regardless of what league your youth football team is in, you are eligible to compete here,” explained Gary Howard.

Howard is the National Scouting Director for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy.

“It really makes this a true championship because you have teams playing each other that typically never would. Plus it’s a great representation of the best regional teams from all youth leagues.”

Be sure to come check out the action! These young players are fired up to leave it all on the field in hopes for making it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame field!

Admission is only $5 and concessions are available at both locations.

Rocklin High School is located at 5301 Victory Lane and Whitney High School is 701 Wildcat Blvd. in Rocklin.
