Baltimore Mania - Girls

Get your team ready for the State Cup with Elite Tournaments’ flagship tournament in the Baltimore/Washington area! In its 19th year, Baltimore Mania has been ranked as one of the top events in Region I for both Boys and Girls teams. This event draws top teams from across Region I with play under the supervision of referees from nine different states. This event is open to GIRLS teams of all levels of play, ages U9-U19.










 

Overview

 

Elite Tournaments has partnered with Casey Cares to host a pajama and gift card 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 our families know they are new!  Gift cards can also be donated in any denomination. Some examples of their preferred stores and restaurants are Panera, Subway, Walmart, Target, Dominos, Pizza Hut, and any local grocery store.

All items can be dropped off at the headquarters location of each tournament site. If you have any questions or would like to donate and cannot attend the event, please contact Cara Martin at cmartin@elitetournaments.com

Weather


Elite Tournaments Lightning Protocol 


Elite Tournaments monitors weekend weather very closely for each tournament. The following situations are protocols that will be implemented in the case of lightning:

Game Has Not Kicked Off

  • If the delay does not allow you to complete 20 minutes of the game to make it official, the game will not kickoff and will result in a 0-0 tie.

Game Has Kicked Off

  • If your game had begun and the first 20 minutes have been completed, then the score will stand.
  • If a game is suspended due to a lightning delay and the game has not reached the 20 minute mark, the game clock will continue to run. Play will resume in accordance with the remaining time left on the running clock. Games will only resume if moving forward completes the necessary 20 minutes of game time. Warm up time will be at the referee's discretion but will still be subject to the running clock. 

Safety Protocol:In case of lightning, all play on fields must be stopped and players, coaches, spectators and referees must clear the playing surface and in the parking lot at minimum. Games will only be allowed to resume after 30 minutes have passed since the last lightning strike in the 10-mile radius.

*This policy is subject to adjustment if there are additional clear and present options approved by the client and/or tournament committee.

Vendors participating in this tournament will be listed two weeks prior to the event.

Player Self-Recruiting

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.
