I just had a 16u/18u team drop due to a death in one of their families. I will re-do the 16u/18u WHITE portion of this weekend’s event and have new times updated before 9pm. I will need ALL teams in the WHITE Bracket to review the updated schedule tonight or tomorrow. It will also affect Sunday’s schedule and I will fix that also. Our prayers are with this team.
I am now taking “Monsterjam 3” Tournament shirt TEAM Pre-orders (minimum 8 shirts). I will take orders until next Friday, October 16th at 11am. Short sleeves will be $15 and long sleeve $20. For our order to sell at the sites, we will only have LONG SLEEVES. If you would like a short sleeve you must turn in with team order. To place your team pre-orders, please email me at email@example.com.
I have just added Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC to our list of parks for our “Monsterjam 3” tournament set for October 24,25. This will CLEAR the 14u teams OFF the Waiting List and allow me to take more 14u teams. I will be adding that park to website tonight and I will see how many more 14u I can take but I think I will able to take 6 MORE 14u TEAMS. If you are a 14u team ON THE WAITING LIST, you are now in the tournament. You do NOT need to contact me. Please email me if you are interested in playing in this event or any event at firstname.lastname@example.org. Some of our ages are FULL for that event but please get on our Waiting List. I cleared most of those lists for this weekend’s “Paint It Pink 3”. I remind teams that I POST OUR FULL SCHEDULE in mid February, not just the Spring portion. I feel bad when I am unable to find more parks to clear the lists, so next year sign up for our most popular events in February. As I tell coaches all the time, it is easier to drop if you are unable to play than to hope I can find more parks if needed.
We are aware some of you are unable to see the teams listed on GAMETIMES. I have checked with many people and about half can see the info I posted and half cannot. We are working to figure out what is wrong. I will wait until tomorrow to post the 16u/18u GAMETIMES to make sure we have figured out what is the issue. IF we are unable to correct by tomorrow afternoon, I will post an update to the HOMEPAGE listing all teams time slots for Saturday. You do not need to call, text or email me. I am aware there is something wrong. Thank you for your patience.
I now have the GAMETIMES POSTED for our “Paint it Pink 3” Breast Cancer Awareness Benefit for 1ou, 12u and 14u. I am waiting to hear from a couple teams in 16u/18u so those times will be up later tonight or by 10am in the morning. I need ALL teams to VERIFY to me that they have received their times. Please email me at email@example.com or by text to 910.690.3556 to VERIFY your times.
I wanted to let 16u/18u teams know that I just had a 16u/18u team DROP this morning and I had cleared the Waiting List this weekend, so I have 1 spot OPEN for our “Paint It Pink” October 10,11 at Freedom Park in Eden NC. Please let me know by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if your team would like to enter. The rest of our ages are FULL and I have VERIFIED ALL teams listed. IF one of those teams drop, I have a Waiting list in all of those ages so I will move in team(s). I will have GAMETIMES posted to the website tomorrow by 7pm. I need ALL teams to VERIFY to me that they have received their GAMETIMES by Thursday, October 8th at 5pm. I MUST hear from your team to HOLD your spot for this weekend. I remind teams that during our WARMUP games ONLY, we will be using the PINK Softballs. They are APPROVED for use in play but we will go to our Decker Shark ASA Softballs during Pool/Bracket play. The PINK Softballs will be used as Umpire Tournament MVP Game Balls and we will see some as well. That money, as well as the raffles at each park of 3n2 products, will go to the Hospice House of Rockingham County NC. Each park will have a table set up for you to buy $1 raffle tickets for a 3n2 package of items. We will draw the winners at EACH park on Sunday, October 11th AFTER our DEVOTIONS. I know many teams pre-ordered tournament shirts, but we will also have a good supply for sell at all 5 parks. I will begin pre-orders for our “Monsterjam 3” tournament shirt tomorrow. I will have a picture posted to our Facebook and Instagram accounts tomorrow. Team pre-orders ONLY of a minimum of 8 shirts. Short sleeves will be $15 and long sleeves $20. They will be purple and have Glow in the Dark ink strategically placed on the front. You can place your TEAM pre-order by email to me.
I have just spoken with Coach Lonni Alameda from Florida State University and we have reached an agreement to host a Softball Camp with her and her staff on Monday and Tuesday, July 11-12, 2016 in Burlington NC. The camp will be held at Springwood Park. ALL proceeds will go to the Taylor Foster Scholarship Fund. I will have more details mid December. I will be meeting with Lonni in Tallahassee that month to finalize everything. As I stated last night, the camp will be open to teams/players that have played with Got Game FIRST. IF any spots left I will open up to others. Once all the details have been worked out, I will post an application to the website. I will ask players/teams to make a partial payment at the time you send in your application to HOLD your spot. IT will be 1st come, 1st served. In honor of Taylor, we are calling this CAMP 7. Thank you again to all the teams that played this past weekend for her Memorial Tournament. I hope to continue this camp each July with FSU and those participating in Taylor’s Memorial events will be given first shot at participating in the camp the following July. Her Memorial tournament will be in September each year.
I wanted to remind teams that ALL TEAM Pre-Orders for our “Paint it Pink 3” tournament shirts are DUE this coming Friday, September 25th at 11am. Tournament shirts are $15 for short sleeves and $20 for long sleeves. We will be ordering shirts to have available but we will only be ordering a very limited amount of long sleeve shirts. We have sold out on Saturday mornings at each of our 1st 2 “Paint it Pink” events so please place your TEAM orders (MINIMUM 10 shirts) to ensure that all your players receive the sizes they want. Please place your team order by sending an email to me at email@example.com by FRIDAY, September 25th at 11am. We can get sizes from Youth Large to 3X Adult. 2x and 3x $2 extra.
As I announced this past Friday, we have been chosen to help host the 2016 NC ASA State Tournaments in 10u,12u and 14u. ALL ages will take place on June 10-12, 2016 in the Burlington NC area. I am going to add a section for these tournaments at the BOTTOM of our Who’s Playing Spring/Fall section on website. I am requesting ANY NC team in those 3 ages that MAY BE INTERESTED in playing to send me an email. I am doing this to see if we will need to book/request additional parks. By sending me an email letting us know of your interest in NO WAY locks you into playing. It is that time of year again to begin to construct requested dates for parks and gauging the interest in those State tournaments now will help with that process. ONLY NC teams are eligible to play on that weekend. Please send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know you may be interested in competing for a true State Championship.
I will take teams up until this Wednesday, September 23rd 11am for our Fall State event in NC (Summerfield and Eden NC) and for our Fall Brawl set for Appomattox VA. Our 12u in NC will be a 1 Day at Freedom Park in Eden NC and I can take 1 more team. We can also take 1 more in 14u for Freedom Park (2 Day tournament). Our 16u/18u in NC will be played at Summerfield Athletic Park and we can take 3 more. I can take 1 more in 10u and 1 more in 14u for Appomattox. 16u/18u is FULL. I will have GAMETIMES posted by 6pm on Wednesday. If your team would like to enter please email me at email@example.com.
We are pleased to announce that 3n2 Sports and Got Game Fastpitch have joined forces! They will become our Sponsor for our “Paint it Pink” events and we will have another announcement soon concerning their involvement with us in 2016. More and more each week I see players wearing 3n2 cleats. They have many products they offer and you can see them at www.3n2sports.com. At each park for our “Paint it Pink 3” tournament, we will have a package of various 3n2 products that we will raffle off. ALL proceeds will go to the Hospice House of Rockingham County NC. We will have a table set up at each park displaying 3n2 cleats, running shoes, training shoes, backpacks, bags, apparel, uniforms, etc. We are honored that 3n2 believes in what we do and what we provide for our #GotGameNation!
I wanted to let everyone know that we have reached a new 3 Year Agreement with Decker Sports to allow the Decker Shark ASA Softball to continue to be the “OFFICIAL BALL OF GOT GAME FASTPITCH”. We are very excited that Decker believes in us and OUR FUTURE!
