Overview

 

Dear Participants and Families – 


The Soccer Association of Columbia and Elite Tournaments are proud to announce a new initiative that will take place during both Columbia Fall Classic Weekends. Throughout both weekends, we will be hosting a Food Drive benefitting the Maryland Food Bank. We will be collecting non-perishable food items such as pasta, canned foods, and cereal. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we want to help families in need keep food on their tables.

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

Check out a list of their most needed items: Click Here

Our refund policy for this tournament in relation to Covid-19 will be as follows:

 

If we are forced to cancel the event prior to 14 days before the start of the tournament, a full refund will be given to participating teams.  Essentially, no charge will be made. 

 

If we are forced to cancel the event within 14 days of the start of the tournament (due to state or federal intervention), a refund minus expenses will be given (expenses will not exceed 25% of the application fee).  This will because at this point, some costs would have been incurred.  We will of course hope that once we get the green light, the event will go ahead as planned.
