Note:  Please also read the Tournament Invitation and FAQ pages linked to the left.

 

Teams and Players

The Hempfield Fall Classic College Showcase portion of the tournament will be held on both Saturday and Sunday of the girls and boys weekends and will be available to all teams accepted to the U16-U19 ages in all divisions, Premier, A, and B playing a tournament format. 

We directly invite over 400 colleges and their coaches from the region to come and observe these older players.

Player Profiles will be created within GotSoccer and distributed by the tournament. All Teams will receive information upon acceptance regarding how to add your tournament roster and player profiles within your GotSoccer team account. To be included in this player profile info provided to college coaches, you must complete the steps we will provide. It is completely free, and these profile books will be available to college coaches nationwide as well as to those attending the event.  If upon acceptance your roster is not finalized it can be updated up until Nov 8.  Please visit the Player Profile Info page of our tournament website for instructions and more info. 

Additionally, on the Friday Nights of each weekend College ID Exhibition Games will be held indoors at SPOOKY NOOK SPORTS LANCO located at 1901 Miller Rd, East Petersburg, PA: on Friday evening, Nov 15 for Girls and Friday Nov 22 for Boys. The college coaches love this format because they know that everyone that is playing wants to play in college. We have done this for years with our events as do some of our local tournaments and have had very good success with this format. 

  • We will host two to three girls matches on Friday evening Nov 15, and we invite each team’s head coach to initially nominate 2 players graduating in 2020 or 2021 from their team that want to play in college to play in the games. This is great opportunity for college coaches to see current players interested in playing in college.
  • We will host two or three boys matches on Friday evening Nov 22, and we invite each team’s head coach to initially nominate 2 players graduating in 2020 or 2021 from their team that want to play in college to play in the games. This is great opportunity for college coaches to see current players interested in playing in college.
  • Once all the tournament team coaches nominate their first 2 players, if we have not filled the team roster then we allow teams to nominate additional players and if space allows 2022 graduating players.

Here are some informative links:

Team players – Once accepted to the tournament players should begin to contact colleges they are interested in to let them know they will attend the Hempfield Adidas Fall Classic.  This generates more interest from the college coaches to attend the event.
