Amanda Post Memorial Soccer Tournament

Kick off the spring season with this strictly small-sided tournament! This annual event is open to U08 to U12 Premier and Classic teams. In 2018, this event brought teams from Maryland and Pennsylvania to play at the Bob Lucido Fields at Covenant Park in Ellicott City, Maryland. Players competed in six brackets following a championship format. This annual tournament is dedicated to the memory of Amanda Josephine Post. 




Due to the latest development of the COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, we have CANCELLED this weekend's Amanda Post Tournament. We will be in touch within the next 2 weeks on future plans for the event.

If your team is holding hotel reservations, please be aware that hotel contracts have an Impossibility  Clause to waive any penalty in the event of a cancellation due to a circumstance beyond the control of the event organizers, that makes it impossible for the tournament to operate.  Halpern Travel has already contacted each hotel's Sales Department to invoke the Impossibility Clause and to cancel your reservation.   You do not need to contact the hotel or Halpern Travel to cancel your reservation.   However, if you would like to keep your reservation, please contact Halpern Travel immediately at888.640.6400 or .

Thank you for your patience and we will be in touch with future plans for this event.


Mike Libber

Tournament Director

Donation Drive

The Soccer Association of Columbia/ Howard County and Elite Tournaments are proud to announce we will be hosting a donation drive for the Children’s Hospital at Sinai during the 2019 Amanda Post Memorial Tournament. We are excited to continue this initiative for the 2019 event.  

While Amanda was battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia, instead of playing soccer, she would spend months at a time at the Children’s Hospital at Sinai. In memory of Amanda’s strength and effort, we would like to invite you all to donate items that will benefit the children and families receiving treatment at that same facility. The Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai helps patients fight a wide variety of childhood illnesses and treats patients on both a local and national level. We appreciate the testament to Amanda’s memory and thank you all for helping her passion for others live on through this generous act of kindness.

All items can be dropped off at Covenant Park during the Amanda Post Memorial Tournament. If you have any questions or would like to donate and cannot attend the event, please contact Cara Martin at
