Charm City Classic

We intend to host the Charm City Classic in 2020 if circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic improve to permit large gatherings again. We are in regular contact with our hosts at Maryland Law, and will provide updates to all interested teams as soon as possible. Our goal is to host in late October again, but that can change depending on how circumstances progress with national travel restrictions. If you’re interested in attending the 2020 Charm City Classic, email our head coach Ben Garmoe at

The Charm City Classic is hosted by UMBC and held at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. The Classic holds the distinction of being one of a small number of invitational tournaments that provides three scoring judges in every trial, giving competitors crucial early-season feedback on their theories and performance. Maryland Law provides beautiful facilities including three courtrooms, several large lecture halls, and closing ceremonies in Westminster Hall.
