To celebrate 28 years of our annual tournament at Elkhorn Soccer Club, we're switching up our name and format!

Our format will better align with our goals as a club that is focused on developing a culture of excellence. For this reason the Elkhorn Summer Classic is for players U11-16. We will be hosting a separate developmental U9-10 tournament Aug 25-27.

We know early August is the time that teams use to get back into the rhythm of things — we’re all getting our fitness back, working on our tactics, and establishing a rhythm amongst the squad. From your youth team to the best of the pros, late summer has recently become the time for pre-season tournaments.

For the 2017 version of our tournament, we are offering a 4-game guarantee for all teams involved. This means plenty of playing time and plenty of opportunity to fine-tune your rosters against good competition!

Dates: August 11-13, 2017

Ages: U11-U16

Price: $495 U11-U12; $525 U13-U16
