The top finishers from each of eight age groups at the local competition will advance to a Sectional competition.

The winners at the Sectional competition will have their scores compared with other Sectional champions; the top four scorers from the pool of Sectional champions advance to the team championship.

Age-group champions at this level will be declared NFL Punt, Pass, & Kick Team Champions. The top four finishers in the boys' and girls' divisions within each age bracket from the pool of all Team Champions will qualify for the National finals at an NFL playoff game in January.
