Holt Brothers Flag Football Tournament Details
What is the Holt Brothers Flag Football Tournament?
The Holt Brothers Flag Football Tournament is a corporate team-building event that benefits the Holt Brothers Foundation. It includes 12 teams going head to head in exciting flag football matchups. The inaugural event takes place on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at NC State’s Close-King Indoor Practice Facility + Dail Outdoor Practice Facility.
Who runs the Holt Brothers Flag Football Tournament?
The Holt Brothers Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports children who have a parent with cancer. The Foundation is being assisted by a group of volunteers from Leadership Raleigh 32, a program of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.
Why Flag Football?
Torry and Terrence Holt, founders of the Holt Brothers Foundation, were NC State football stars who went on to successful careers in the National Football League. A flag football tournament benefitting the foundation is something they’ve wanted to do for a long time — it combines giving back AND football.
Who is on a team?
If you’ve signed on as a corporate team, you can include men and women from your workplace, clients and partners. You have a total of 12 spots to fill. You’ll also need a team captain, who will attend two informational events – one on April 15th at 4 PM at the Carolina Ale House on Glenwood Avenue, the other on May 20th at the same location at 4 PM. Team captains are responsible for calling practices, overseeing team activities and making sure their team plays by the rules.
What is a “virtual player” and how can that person be involved?
A “virtual player” is someone who can’t participate in person on game day, but who wants to fundraise. Think of it as our take on fantasy football. Anyone can become a virtual player to help children who have a parent with cancer and be part of the tournament.
When does the tournament start and end?
Registration starts at 7:30 AM and the tournament begins at 9 AM. The day wraps up at 5:15 PM when the winners will be announced. For additional information and exact times, visit Event Details.
