2015 Thanksgiving Showcase
(U15-U19 Girls ONLY)
November 27-29, 2015
To all our participants, attendees, and volunteers of the 2015 Thanksgiving Showcase,
The latest weather forecast for Thursday-90% Rain/Low 60°, Friday-100% Rain/Low 40°, Saturday-100% Rain/Low 40° and Sunday-60% Rain/Low 42°. After careful consideration, and constant communication with the City of Farmers Branch, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.
A number of factors were considered in making this decision, with the most important one being the safety of the players. Additionally, we feared that under the weather conditions we have been provided, this would not provide the most optimal exposure to showcase a player's talents.
A partial refund will be issued to all teams in the coming weeks.
We are truly sorry for this turn of events, and we hope to see you next year.
Ramy Bidopia - Director

2015 Thanksgiving Showcase
ABOUT THE SHOWCASE:
- The objective of the Thanksgiving Showcase has been to provide a consistently high level of competitive games and to afford extensive college exposure to some of the best female soccer talent in the United States. We annually register over 150 college programs to view our games.
- Unlike so many tournaments in which teams may only play highly competitive teams in the finals, we offer a consistently high caliber of competition for every game. Games are matched as competitively as possible in order to showcase the players and the teams. All teams participating compete in the strongest league and division their state has to offer. We perennially have teams participating that are State, Regional, National competition and Elite Clubs National League participants.
- Due to the number of fields available to us, we are limited in the amount of teams that we are able to accept.
- We attempt to be as flexible as possible with scheduling in order to meet travel needs, particularly for teams traveling long distances by air or car. All teams play a minimum of three 80 minutes games; the schedule will be a one game per day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (Any variances will be discussed with the pertaining teams.)
- All games are played at McInnish Park and Cox Fields. All of our fields are located less than 5-10 minutes from each other and only 10-15 minutes from our hosts hotels.
We hope to hear from your team soon so that we can add you to our growing list of distinctive teams. Please, respond promptly - age brackets fill up extremely early.
- We have arranged special rates with several City of Farmer’s Branch hotels for your weekend with us. These hotels are located just minutes from the fields and boast numerous amenities to guarantee your comfortable stay. Please note, all teams MUST use one of our approved hotels if accepted to the showcase.
Events by Design, Inc. will handle the showcase hotel reservations. For reservations, click here...
