Florida State University Camp Registration – FYI

FSU Camp shirtI wanted to let teams/parents know that the Florida State University camp registration will go live this coming Monday at Noon.  I will add a post update to our website at that point giving everyone the website address to register.  We also will have a permanent link added to our website under “SOFTBALL CAMPS” that will give you more information about the camp and the link to register will also be on that page.  The camp takes place July 11-12, 2016 at Springwood Park in Burlington NC.  We are working on a Preferred Hotel for this event and I will be posting that info as well on the link on our website.  If you have any questions concerning the camp please call or text me at 910.690.3556 or by email at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com.  This camp is in honor of Taylor Foster and I have added below the image of the Camp t-shirt that all players will receive.  We are very excited to have a perennial Top 10 Division 1 College program’s coaching staff coming to host this camp.  Also verified to be in attendance is Lacey Waldrop, former FSU pitcher and current player with the Chicago Bandits, Maddie O’Brien who now plays with the Pennsylvania Rebellion and current players Jessica Burroughs (who was just added to the USA Softball Player of the Year Watch List) and Macey Cheatham.  We also will be adding more college coaches as we get nearer the camp.  Campbell University Head Coach Todd Bradley has already been confirmed by FSU Head Coach Lonni Alameda.  Thank you for all the interest in this camp and your patience as Lonni and myself worked thru compliance issues with Florida State and the NCAA.  I hope to see many of you at our Virginia Coaches meeting tomorrow in Martinsville VA.  Have a great weekend.

Roanoke Valley VA/Dinwiddie VA 2016 Dates Announced

I wanted to give everyone an update on 2016 dates that I just received today.  I will list below the dates we will have tournaments in the Roanoke Valley VA area as well as a new park for us, Dinwiddie Sports Complex in Sutherland VA.  I also wanted to let teams know that I will be listing a few more parks this week as well.  For our tournaments played in NC, those events will also be listed at the NC ASA website, www.ncasafastpitch.com.  I have the Huntersville NC events listed there now and I will be listing more events this week, including the 2016 NC ASA State tournaments in 10u, 12u and 14u.  We will post which park each age will play at as soon as we can but we are still waiting to hear back from some parks before we make our final decision.  Many of you have asked when I would have the FINAL 2016 Schedule posted and that will all depend on when parks get back to me.  I anticipate having the ENTIRE 2016 Season posted by February 15th, but as I mentioned earlier, I am posting as parks are verified.  Some parks have given me my dates but they will be used with other parks for a particular tournament, so they will not be listed until ALL parks that I plan to use for that event are verified.  Teams will still need to ENTER tournaments this coming season by emailing me at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com.  I will add the events listed below tonight or tomorrow and I will add teams as they enter.
