Welcome to the 19th annual SAC Columbus Day Tournament! This event takes place in Howard county, MD with the primary venue being the gorgeous Bob Lucido  Fields at Covenant Park. This event is open to all levels of competitions for Boys and Girls ages U8-U15. The format for this event will be Championship style, with the first and second place team within each bracket receiving awards. The number of brackets will vary in age group based on the number of tournament entries.

Leveling The Playing Field is dedicated to its mission of collecting used sports equipment to give to underprivileged communities, where children may not have affordable access to sports equipment and programs. Whether it’s providing soccer balls for young athletes or ensuring that kids have the chance to participate in sports, our commitment is unwavering. They’ve donated over 100,000 items to youth sports organizations allowing them to reduce the cost of entry into these programs. It has also allowed these programs to hire and train more staff for additional programs and more personalized coaching. We will be collecting used sports equipment for Leveling The Playing Field at all of our tournament locations! Drop off donations at the headquarters area or with your field marshal.
