• WELCOME!

      The 2021 Elite Showcase and Junior Showcase, hosted by AFC Lightning, will be held on April 16-18, 2021. This event is open to USYSA, US Club Soccer, and FIFA International U12-U19 boys and girls teams (11v11 only).

       

      If the tournament is canceled due to COVID-19, accepted teams will receive a full refund minus a $20 administrative fee.

       

      U12 - U14 teams will be playing a traditional tournament format where teams are placed into groups for round-robin play to determine Champions and Finalists. Awards will be presented to Champions and Finalists.

       

      U15 - U19 teams will be playing a showcase format, where teams will play 2 or 3 scheduled games with no advancement to a final. The Showcase will post standings, but there will not be advancement nor trophies/plaques for teams winning the event. Showcase Teams will also have the option of selecting to play a 3-day format (Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday) or a 2-day format (no game Friday) when registering.

       

      When applying, teams will have the option of selecting to play on Friday evening (6 pm or later), or only play on Saturday and Sunday. Friday games are not required and will depend upon team availability on that day.
