Battlefield Blast

The Battlefield Blast Soccer Tournament presented by Gettysburg Youth Soccer Club and Elite Tournaments will be held August 29 -30, 2020 at locations in and around the historic Gettysburg, PA area. This year the event will be hosting both boys’ and girls’ teams, ages u8 through u19. Application deadline is August 2nd, 2020. All teams will play a total of six games (a mix between mini and full games) over the two-day event with trophies and medals being awarded to 1st and 2nd place teams in each division for each age group. This is a great pre-season kick off tournament offering quality competition and lots of fun for all the teams participating in this great event! 











 

Overview

Elite Tournaments is closely following the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and US Youth Soccer regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic. Though we’d rather be out playing on the field, the health and safety of our partners, participants, and spectators is our top priority. 

 

While the return date for the soccer season is still uncertain, we plan to move forward with the Gettysburg Battlefield Blast set to take place on August 29-30. We will continue to monitor the guidelines set forth by the CDC and will re-evaluate this decision as we get closer to the tournament dates.

 

If you were planning to attend the Gettysburg Battlefield Blast, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible! The application will close on July 31st. We will not charge any registration fees until we are confident the event will move forward as planned. Those who have already paid the registration fee will be issued a full refund in the event of cancellation due to COVID-19.
