The 2014 November Nights Elite College Showcase is a ‘Stay & Play’ Tournament, which means that teams (players/parents/coaches/relatives & anyone associated with the team) traveling into Carlsbad and North County San Diego are required to follow our reservation procedure and stay in hotels that are approved by the Tournament as a condition of participation. All teams requiring overnight accommodations MUST secure them through our hotel partners. Teams MUST reserve a minimum of 6 rooms to qualify and participate in November Nights. Failure to do so may result in the team not getting scheduled.

  • No Thursday Thanksgiving Night check-in.
  • Teams will now only be required to check-in 90 minutes prior to their first game on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
  • This will allow teams and families to enjoy Thanksgiving without having to run out to check a team in.
  • We feel this will be yet another reason to make the November Nights Showcase one of your team’s choices for your 2014 tournament schedule.

  • Teams will register on-site a minimum of 90 minutes prior to their first game at which time a completed and signed Team Roster must be submitted by coach or manager who must certify that all players are FIFA or USSF registered players.
  • Teams must also present laminated USYSA player cards for 2014/15, proof of age, and signed medical release forms. US Club Soccer Cards will also be accepted, but no mixing of cards.
  • Coach or assistant coach must have valid coaching ID to participate in tournament games.

'November Nights' is a great event...close to surf cup, good teams, fun atmosphere for the players under the lights.  we've really enjoyed going the past couple of years and will definitely be back--we also really appreciate how hospitable the staff at carlsbad elite are--they go out of their way to make the weekend welcoming and enjoyable.
