Delaware’s state motto: Liberty & Independence
That can only mean one thing: this tournament is going to be L.I.T. 🔥🔥🔥
The Liberty & Independence Tournament (LIT for short) is a great opportunity to play against teams from all around the Northeast. With the DE Turf Sports Complex less than 3 hours away from many Northeast Ultimate hubs, LIT is sure to attract teams from all over the area. For highly competitive teams, this mid-season tournament is a great opportunity to finalize your roster or tune up your game for the High School State Championships (or YCC). For developing teams, this youth ultimate tournament will introduce your players to competitive play and a great environment to grow. Whatever your team’s goals, we plan to create a great weekend of ultimate for all teams that attend.
GLUE has organized some of the biggest and best youth ultimate tournaments in Midwest (High School National Invite, Windy City Invite and Neuqua Knockout) and now we are excited to bring our newest tournament out to the North East! With our team of experienced TDs, you can have confidence that the tournament will be professionally run. What you can expect from us:
- Premium turf fields
- Your favorite tournament food
- Professional photography with daily highlights
- Custom event merchandise
- Tournament Central Shenanigans (Yes, that includes jumbo Connect 4!)
The Middle School ultimate division will be 1-day only (likely Saturday) and we will work with the MS coaches to select the day that works the best for all teams.
This youth ultimate tournament is Unsanctioned which means that your players do NOT have to be USA Ultimate members to participate. We have done this for three main reasons:
- Lower overall per player cost of entry to encourage new players and newer ultimate teams to attend
- Allows for us to accept local and regional youth club ultimate teams to drive high competition
- Eliminates roster management for coaches, captains, and parents
If you need more information, please shoot us a message over on the Contact Us page.
As this is a youth tournament, we will require some additional steps for coaches and chaperones to follow in preparation for the event (background check and SafeSport training). These are becoming standard across youth sports and we are proud to implement these standards at all GLUE Ultimate events in 2019.
