Youth Football Tournament

field 7

Spend your 2017 Thanksgiving holiday amid the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains, while participating in our 46th Annual Thanksgiving Football Tournament. In the last four years, our tournament hosted over 210 teams from twelve states competing in our three-day tournament.

Weigh Ins begin on Wednesday, November 22 and will continue Thursday, November 23, 2017. Games begin on Thursday, November 23 and the last games will be played Saturday, November 25, 2017. We have Age Division Brackets to accommodate 6-13 years of age and allow players to compete in a competitive atmosphere. Teams will still have a two game minimum, we will try our best to get everyone at least three games over the weekend (the number of games will be based on the number of teams participating in each division).

Rocky Top Sports World is located 5 miles outside of downtown Gatlinburg and will be conducting all registration processes.
