      We are pleased to invite your team to apply to the East Tennessee Spring Classic! This tournament is a perfect early spring tournament choice for your team for many reasons. We have scheduled our tournament before most spring breaks so that you will have the opportunity to evaluate your team early in the season and to get some competitive play in before spring break.  Also, early March is a wonderful time to play soccer in East Tennessee.  The average high in the Knoxville area during this time of the year is in the high 50s.  East Tennessee is well situated between five other states, so we draw teams from different areas and can offer a variety of competition.

      THIS YEAR ALL AGE BRACKETS WILL BE HELD THE WEEKEND OF MARCH 3-5.  ONLY LOCAL TEAMS WOULD BE ASKED TO PLAY GAMES ON FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 3.

      OLDER AGE GROUPS (U-13 AND ABOVE) WILL PLAY A SHOWCASE FORMAT.  OUR GOAL IS TO HAVE 4 TEAMS IN EACH DIVISION TO HELP MAKE THIS FORMAT WORK WELL.  THE FORMAT FOR DIVISIONS IN YOUNGER AGE GROUP WILL  DEPEND ON THE NUMBER OF TEAMS IN EACH DIVISION.

      We offer one of the most team-friendly tournaments that you could possibly find.  We will allow pre-tournament and game day registration so that coaches and managers don't have to travel any earlier than necessary.  Our fees are very reasonable for a competitive soccer tournament, and Knoxville and Blount County have some of the most convenient and affordable lodging that you will find for a tournament.  We also offer one of a reasonable refund policy for a tournament at this time of year.  If we are forced to cancel the entire tournament due to weather, we will return your entire registration fee less a $50 processing fee to cover actual out-of-pocket costs that cannot be avoided.

      IF YOU ARE A COACH WITH TWO TEAMS AT THE SAME LOCATION, WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO AVOID COACHING CONFLICTS.  IF YOU ARE A COACH WITH TWO TEAMS PLAYING AT DIFFERENT LOCATIONS, WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO AVOID CONFLICTS FOR THOSE TEAMS BUT WE CANNOT GUARANTY THAT WE CAN DO SO.  ALL TEAMS SHOULD ARRANGE FOR AN ALTERNATE COACH TO BE AVAILABLE DUE TO CONFLICTS AND SHOULD MAKE SURE THAT SUCH ALTERNATE COACH IS SHOWN ON YOUR ROSTER.

      Our tournament is truly a cooperative East Tennessee effort between Blount United Soccer Club and the Knoxville Football Club, two of the oldest and most respected Clubs in East Tennessee.  These Clubs are pooling their resources to sponsor a great tournament experience.

    • 2017 TOURNAMENT
      REGISTRATION FOR THE 2017 TOURNAMENT IS OPEN.  THE TOURNAMENT WILL BE HELD ON ONE WEEKEND THIS YEAR - MARCH 3RD, 4TH AND 5TH
    • CHECKING IN
      Managers should plan on checking in your team one hour prior to kick off at the site of your first game of the tournament.
    • Notes on Scheduling
         Local teams (within 45 minutes of the applicable field) may be asked to play a game on Friday evening in the U-13 and above brackets if needed to complete a bracket during the weekend.  In such a case, the teams requested to play on Friday shall be given at least one weeks' notice of a Friday game.  We will use our best efforts to schedule teams that are traveling more than 45 minutes but less than two hours after 10 a.m. for their first game on Saturday so that those teams will not be required to incur the cost of two nights' lodging. We cannot guarantee a late game, however, because it is not possible to predict how many teams will fit in this category.
    • Registration and Payment Deadline
      Registration deadline is February 17th.  We will only accept registration after that date if we need a team in an age group to fill out a bracket.  Please register today.  Payment must be received within one week of registration (but not later than the registration deadline) for a team to be included in the draw.
    • Age Group Locations

      U-9 and U-10 will be at Lakeshore Park in Knoxville.  U-11 and U-12 will be at Vulcan Park in Maryville.  U-13 and above games are expected to be held at various artificial turf fields in the Knoxville area.  Furtehr details will be forthcoming for fields for the older age groups.

    • No results for 2015 Tournament
      The 2015 tournament was canceled due to very inclement weather.  For that reason, no results for 2015 are posted under tournament  history.  Over 100 teams were registered for the 2015 tournament.
