United Soccer Coaches Baltimore Showcase

The United Soccer Coaches Baltimore Showcase presented by Under Armour will take place Thanksgiving weekend, November 28 -  29, 2020.  Premier, Elite and Classic brackets may be available, depending on the number of entries. The referee mentoring program, the only program of its kind in United States, returns for the 9th year. This is a USYSA Sanctioned tournament - all teams must be affiliated and their players registered with USYSA through their respective state associations or US Club Soccer.




Attention: We have been notified by Howard County's Executive Director that he is closing all park facilities for our event this coming weekend and moving forward until COVID-19 is more under control: CLICK HERE


After this weekend, we will be in touch with teams about refunds that will be sent out and where to send them. Please be patient with this process. Once we have information to pass along we will.


Our hotel booking agency will notify all hotels about the cancellation, so if your team had any hotel reservations please do not call the hotel.


Lastly please have a safe Thanksgiving and we hope to see you all back on the playing field soon!


Thank you

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.
