Alliance Cincinnati May Classic

Soccer Tournament

May 19th – 21st, 2017

Will be back in May, 2018

Regrettably, Alliance Cincinnati has cancelled the Alliance May Classic Tournament due to unforeseen circumstances.  We feel the need to communicate this cancellation quickly because the team participation was growing rapidly.  Internally, it was more than obvious that the date, location and level of tournament was going to be a success; therefore, we will keep it on the calendar for 2018.

Alliance Cincinnati is proud to announce that we are expanding our tournament selection to now include the Alliance Cincinnati May Classic, presented by Under Armour, which will be held from May 19th – May 21st at Miami Meadows (Cincinnati, OH).

This tournament is tailored towards all teams and levels within the U8 to U18 age groups and promises to deliver a wonderful soccer experience and a fun atmosphere for all the Players and Families that attend.

All accepted teams will be guaranteed a minimum of three games of play, and championship and finalist awards will be handed out in each division. We hope that you will join us for a great weekend of soccer!

Application Deadline is April 27th!

    Lightning Policy

    Miami Township Lightning Policy
    1. Anytime lightning is visible or you hear thunder, all players, coaches, spectators, umpires, and referees should Take Shelter Immediately!

    2. Lightning Predictor – The Thor-Guard Lightning Predictor has been installed at Miami Meadows Park and Paxton-Ramsey Park. The Thor-Guard Lightning Predictor is programmed to emit a loud horn blast for 15 seconds as soon as there is a 30% chance that lightning will strike in a 2-mile radius. After the horn goes off, a yellow strobe will continue to flash until the risk of lightning has decreased. As soon as the horn or strobe are noted, outside activities should cease. All people (coaches, teams, spectators, officials, etc.) should immediately seek safe and appropriate shelter. When the risk of lightning has decreased to a safer level, the detector will sound 3 short all-clear blasts and the strobe will cease. For parks without the Thor-Guard Lightning Predictor, anytime lightning is visible or you hear thunder, please take shelter immediately.

    3. Umpires, referees and/or event supervisor(s) should instruct all players, coaches, and fans that a danger is present and they should seek lightning safe shelter immediately. Recommended places for shelter are buildings with active electrical circuits and hard top vehicles with all windows closed. Picnic shelters ARE NOT suitable shelter.

    4. Wait at least 30 minutes after the last lightning flash or the last sound of thunder before resuming activities.

    5. Danger Zones To Avoid – Top floor of a building, showering, standing on concrete, talking on corded phones or touching any metal objects inside or outside of buildings and structures.

    6. If the hair on your head or on your arms stands up or if you feel a tingling sensation: A. Immediately crouch down, put your feet together, lower your head, cover your ears and close your eyes and remain there until the sensation subsides; B. Avoid proximity and maintain a minimum of 15 ft. to other people.

    7. If anyone is struck by lightning CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.

    8. We encourage you to develop and follow a “Lightning Safety Plan” for your specific event or activity.

    9. This policy is not intended to be all-inclusive. All park users assume all risks associated with use of parks including potential of lightning strikes or other dangers resulting from inclement weather. We make no guarantee that the Thor-guard Lightning Predictor will function as designed. Miami Township assumes no liability to park users as a result of installation of lightning detection system.
