Our 29th annual tournament at the Elkhorn Soccer Club, is the preeminent pre-season tune up with our 4-Game guarantee.

This format better aligns with our club philosophy that is focused on holistic child development. For this reason, the Elkhorn Summer Classic is for players’ 11U-16U. 

We know early August is the time to get back into the rhythm of things —players are getting their technique and fitness back, working on tactics, and establishing relationships within the squad. From youth teams to full professional sides, late summer has recently become the time for pre-season tournaments.

We are, again, offering a 4-game guarantee. This means plenty of playing time and opportunities to fine-tune your rosters against good competition!  Last year we had to turn teams away so please register early. We are expecting to fill all of our teams again, adding even more spaces this year.


Keith Reid, Tournament Director

Dates: August 10-12, 2018
