The 2015 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.

Hotel Procedure and Approved Hotels for this event coming soon!

  • 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 2015 tournament schedule.

  • Teams will register on-site a minimum of 60 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 registered players.
  • Teams must also present laminated USYSA player cards for 2015/16, 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.

The November Nights Elite College Showcase is excited to announce that it has once again teamed up with Next Level Goalkeeping to offer the 2015 November Nights GKiD Camp! Further details on the camp will be posted in due course.

I thought that the hospitality of the tournament was outstanding! It was an organized and welcoming environment. The three locations were close enough to drive around for college coaches. The level of the play was very satisfying. Teams were very competitive and overall evenly matched. I coach for a NCAA Division 3 school, but there were definitely players who can play for the competitive division 1 level. I also liked for our program because there were many good soccer players with good academic standards. I certainly look forward to attending it next year!
