October 10th-11th 2020

This Years Event Has Been Cancelled.

We Hope To See You In 2021


The 6th Annual Columbus Day Challenge was a huge success. We have grown  from 130 teams in to a sold out event with well over 250 teams in 2019, pulling from all across New England. The tournament's quality competition and regional draw were big factors in its success. Thanks to all who attended and congratulations to all the champions!





At CT Rush, we want to ensure that everyone who frequents our event feel comfortable and safe. We also want teams to know that we care and for that reason, we have introduced the “Register with Confidence” initiative. This initiative gives teams peace of mind knowing the uncertainty that lies ahead. 

With this initiative, if your team registers for our event, we WILL NOT cash your check until US Soccer and/or other state or federal restrictions have been lifted due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

CT Rush is hopeful that with new safety protocols in place, we can hold our annual tournament in October.

For more information or questions regarding Register with Confidence Initiative, please contact CT Rush Tournament Directors at tournamentdirector@ctrushsoccer.com
