Gettysburg Blue Gray Cup - Memorial Day Tournament

Following the success of the Gettysburg Battlefield Blast, GYSC and Elite Tournaments team up to host the Blue Gray Cup - Memorial Day Tournament. The unique 6 game format features three 25-minute matches and three 50-minute matches. This guarantees teams 225 minutes on the field! The first 3 matches (25 minutes each) serve as the group play games to determine the playoff seeding 1-8. After that, teams lay it all on the line during the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals (50 minutes each)! Teams that don't advance to the finals play consolation matches to wrap up their weekend.

Kids Day with D.C. United presented by Safeway
D.C. United does a lot of work in the community and our primary partner is DC Scores. DC SCORES’ school-based, team-based, whole child programming — delivered through free after-school programs and summer camps facilitated by trained youth development professionals — intentionally integrates soccer, poetry, and service-learning to help low-income 3rd-8th graders throughout the District build physical fitness, find their voice, improve their literacy, increase school engagement, and strengthen ties to their community. We have an event to celebrate the kids at our game on May 20 and our goal is to secure a ticket donation for all 2000 kids and one family member each to the game.

Player Self-Recruiting: Elite Tournaments highly recommends that players reach out to the schools that they are interested in playing for. Many coaches come to our events to scout for pick up players, but will not realize that you interested in playing for their team unless you reach out to them! We also know that you have many schools that you are looking to play for that are not currently signed up to attend our event. You are encouraged to reach out to schools you are looking to attend, and let them know which events you will be playing in this season. We welcome you to invite these coaches to attend this event. If you have a coach that you are inviting to attend, please have them pre-register at the link above.
