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 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 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.

OFFICIAL ONLINE PROGRAM – 2014

November Nights is one of the reasons I make the trip to San Diego; each year the competition and level of play has gotten better. The facilities are set up perfectly and the fields are close enough to allow us coaches to see as much of the action as possible. The opportunity to see and evaluate talent is exceptional.  If I have to work over Thanksgiving weekend, what better place than San Diego?
