Showcase Tournament

Team Check-In Information

  • Team Profile Form:
    Each team must fill out a Team Profile Form, which will be included in a binder for college coaches. This is an online form that can be accessed by logging into your Mad Dog Mania account. You are able to make changes to the information that you provide on this form up until June 8th, 2018. Filling out this profile form is mandatory for your participation and must be completed by June 8th, 2018.
    Please note that this form does not take the place of your league approved roster which is required at the tournament check-in.

  • Additional Player Profiles:
    Each team should bring additional, more detailed player profiles to the tournament. College coaches will be provided with a Team Profile Book, however once a specific player is identified, coaches find it beneficial to refer to more a detailed profile. All player profiles should be brought to the Headquarters Tent at check-in where they will be displayed for distribution.

  • Lodging:
    The Tournament has a "Stay to Play" policy. All out-of-area teams are required to reserve their housing through our official Tournament Housing Coordinator, Halpern Travel. If your team does not reserve housing through Halpern Travel, it will forfeit the team's eligibility to participate. Please go to for details and to make your team's reservations.

  • Team Check-in:
    Teams are asked to check-in at Gavin Park or Saratoga PBA Fields one hour before their first game. The following materials are required:
    • Official League Roster
    • Player Passes for all participating players
    • Travel Permission: Any US Club Team or US Youth Soccer State Association team within Region 1 DOES NOT need permission to travel papers.
    • A signed Medical Release/Waiver Form for each participating player (we require use of our specific Tournament Waiver Form which players can print from our website)

  • Contacting College Coaches:
    Please encourage your players to contact coaches on their own. This is a very important step in the college recruitment process. Prior contact from players not only helps to ensure that coaches will attend this tournament, but it also increases the likelihood that a coach will view one of your team's games during the event. For details on how to contact college coaches and what information coaches are looking for, please have your players refer to the Getting Recruited section of our website.

  • Game Schedules:
    Schedules will be posted on this website, approximately one week prior to the tournament date.
