The Indianapolis Colts are sending the Elkhart Cowboys, a 10 and under flag football team from Elkhart, Ind., to the NFL FLAG Championships at Pro Bowl Games presented by Subway, in Las Vegas.

The five-on-five NFL FLAG Championships will include the top girls’ and boys’ youth flag teams from across the country and around the world.  Games begin on February 3, 2023, and the Cowboys will compete in the tournament as an at-large team.

The Cowboys will receive flights, hotel and other expenses, courtesy of the Colts. Each participant will receive a ticket to the Pro Bowl Games and East-West Shrine Bowl, as well as a commemorative NFL FLAG performance jersey and other NFL and Colts-branded gear.

“The Elkhart Cowboys are extremely honored to be noticed and selected by our home state NFL team the Indianapolis Colts, and we are still in shock from their generosity,” said Elkhart Coach David Garcia. “This opportunity provides so much – from getting the chance for our Hoosier boys to showcase their talent on such a large platform to the unbelievable memories that will last a lifetime. We will represent the Colts with all we’ve got!”

With more than 1,600 teams and 500,000 youth athletes across 50 States, NFL FLAG is the largest youth flag football league in the U.S.  NFL FLAG leagues are no contact, giving boys and girls, ages four to 17 and of all abilities, a chance to develop their fundamental football skills in a positive, inclusive environment.
