The Nation's Capital Cup - Boys Weekend

The Nation's Capital Cup Presented by Elite Tournaments and McLean Youth Soccer will take place in Fairfax, VA and will feature all weather synthetic turf fields. With weather being such a factor this time of year we are offering our multiple turf field complexes at a reasonable price. Teams will receive a 3-game minimum and all age groups will be a Championship Format with finals. The event will be open to all levels of play for U9-U19 Boys Only.



Dear Participants and Families –

 Elite Tournaments and McLean Youth Soccer have partnered with Casey Cares to host a pajama and gift card drive at the Nation's Capital Cup Boys Weekend. 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



Don't forget to use #NationsCup on all your posts and photos!

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 are 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.



We welcome all out of town referees! If you are interested in being a referee for this event, please contact our referee assignor, Tarey Houston at
