Baltimore Mania - Boys

Get your team ready for State Cup with this great pre-season tournament in Columbia, Maryland! In its 18th year, Baltimore Mania is one of the top ranked events in Region I for both boys and girls. Top teams from all over Region I come to compete and play under the supervision of referees from nine different states. Our staff works diligently to schedule around any coaching conflicts so that coaches, players, and parents alike get the most out of the tournament. We offer discounts for clubs that bring multiple teams to this awesome event!



In 2017, over 390 teams applied to participate in the Baltimore Mania boys’ weekend, with a total of 372 accepted teams! These teams traveled from Canada, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia to compete in 45 different brackets.

Elite Tournaments has partnered with Casey Cares to host a Pajama Drive at the Baltimore Mania Tournament.

Inspired by the memory of a Casey Cares child, this program provides new sleepwear and pajama-themed parties to children on extended hospital stays. The pajamas give children the comfort of home in an otherwise sterile environment. Their goal is to provide more than 8,000 new pairs of pajamas to critically ill children this year alone. Their biggest needs are always infant sizes and teen/adult sized PJs but they accept any new pairs of pajamas. Please keep tags on them so the families know they are new! Casey Cares will also be collecting movie and pizza restaurant gift cards for the children in their programs.

Donated items can be dropped off at the headquarters area of each tournament site!
