The Fathers and Families Football Tournament is an event where community teams play against each other in a single elimination flag football tournament to encourage interaction between fathers, father figures, and community participants. This positive interaction inspires hope and develops opportunities for engagement between communities. Data has taught us that a father’s positive involvement in their children's lives is critical. To have the ability to raise the next generation of children into loving and solid homes activities that showcase a community that is safe, fun loving, and engaged is crucial. Not only is this engagement beneficial for the child, but in the development of the ecosystem that our families are a part of. That loving leadership and involvement is crucial to the future of our families, communities, country, and world. When a father is not involved in his child's life, we know that : 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (U.S. Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average. 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average. 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average.  (Center for Disease Control)

Father Factor in Education – Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school. Children with Fathers who are involved are 40% less likely to repeat a grade in school. (http://www.rochesterareafatherhoodnetwork.org/statistics*)

This event will benefit the community by addressing father engagement, community education, stress reduction, and community focus.
