SAC United Columbus Day Tournament



Attention - Weather Updates:


Update for Genesee Valley Only (10/11/14 at 12pm)

The following brackets will be completely cancelled for the remainder of the weekend:


Boys Brackets

U12 Red

U12 Green

U12 Orange


Girls Brackets

U12 Red

U12 White

U12 Blue


It is with our greatest regret that we must fully cancel all games for the remainder of the weekend at Genesee Valley. Elite Tournaments has done everything in our power to remedy this situation, however the facility shut down the fields and there is nothing we can do. We further assessed the schedule to look for potential areas where we could reschedule games; but after taking into account limited field locations, referees, and daylight we were forced to make this ultimate decision. We understand your frustration, however we ask that you please be patient with us during this time. E-mails regarding reimbursement will be sent out in the following week. We ask that you please not call our office to inquire at this time. Anyone who calls will be politely asked to send an e-mail to the tournament director with no further discussion. E-mails will be replied to after the finish of the tournament weekend. We thank you for understanding and will certainly be in touch as quickly as possible.

U13 Classic

U13 Platinum

With the amount of possible rain approaching we felt it was best to make these modifications now instead of waiting until tomorrow morning. All Sunday schedules will remain the same.


All schedules for the above brackets will have these modifications to the length of games for Saturday only. Games will be (2) 24 minute halves with a 2 minute halftime. There will be no warmups before ANY games and there will be no injury time. All games for these brackets are on turf fields and we need to keep the games on time. Before the games field marshals will approach each coach and ask for captains to do the coin toss.


As I stated before if your new schedule has a coaching conflict you will need to make adjustments for those games. We will not be making schedule changes for coaching conflicts at this point. Our main goal is to get the games in.


There have been a lot of moving parts with these schedule adjustments. If by chance you arrive at your game and your field is short an official please provide a club linesman until a backup referee can be found.  


Thank you for your patience and please travel safely.
