We were given Springwood Park in Burlington NC this past Tuesday for the weekend of April 1,2. Its late to add a park but we did have some teams sign up. To hopefully pick up some more teams we will now make this a 1 Day Saturday tourney. We are taking teams in 10u 12u 14u and 16u/18u. IF we can get 2 ages to make we will play. We have made the 3 Game Guarantee $200 for all teams. If your team would like to sign up please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take teams for this tourney up until Wednesday March 29th at Noon.
We just had a team drop in the 12u age in Burlington. We will have UPDATED Game times by 5pm this evening. We put out several updates a week on when the ADD/DROP DEADLINE is. This week for Burlington it was Noon today. ANY team DROPPING AFTER Game times are POSTED will PRE-PAY for their events the rest of the season. We give you ample time to find players if you need them for that week. IF you have any doubt that your team will be able to play, then PULL your team BEFORE the DEADLINE. We now have to change the umpire schedule for Burlington and drop an umpire so hopefully that person can find work elsewhere. This is just 1 of the repercussions of DROPPING AFTER THE GAME TIMES ARE POSTED! Please check back to the website by 5pm this evening for UPDATED 12u Game times for Burlington.
We now have Game Times posted for Springwood Park in Burlington NC for March 25. We need ALL teams to VERIFY that they have received their times and give us 2 email addresses to send your paperwork to you. ONCE you have turned in your Preferred emails for the season you do NOT need to send them again but we will need teams to ALWAYS VERIFY each week that they have received their times. Please email us at email@example.com to VERIFY your times and get us your email addresses.

We have made our “Kickoff Classic Burlington” for this weekend into a 1 Day, Saturday tourney. We have had many teams contact us about the forecast for rain on Sunday and even though that is several days away, we try to take into consideration the teams opinions and we feel it is best to play this as a 1 Day on Saturday. IF we are rained out on Saturday, we will play on Sunday. We can take 3 more teams in 12u and 2 more in 14u.
Our 1st ever tourney in Salisbury NC at the Salisbury Community Park will now be a 1 Day in BOTH the 10u AND the 12u ages. The 10u had already been set as a 1 Day. We have 8 teams in each age and we will take 10 so each age can take 2 more teams. This is set to be played on Saturday, April 1st. As is the case with this weekend in Burlington, IF we were to be rained out on Saturday, we will play on Sunday, April 2nd.
The DEADLINE has passed to enter this weekend’s “Kickoff Classic Roanoke Valley” for Botetourt Sports Complex in Troutville VA. We will have the GAMETIMES posted for this tourney by 6pm tomorrow, March 21st. Once GAME TIMES have been POSTED, we need ALL teams to VERIFY that they have seen their start time AND give us 2 emails so that we can send all your info for the tourney. You can text these to Tim at 910.690.3556 but the best way is to email us at email@example.com so that we have that email and you can give us 1 more. This ensures the teams receive all the paperwork they need.
We wanted to let teams know some information about Jeff Shelton Park in Locust NC and a special Entry Fee price we have for our April 8,9 event there. It is our 1st ever tourney in Locust and they have completed the paving of the walkways and are almost finished with a brand new bathroom facility onsite. They are very excited to have USA Softball come to their city so we need teams to support this. We will play the 10u age as a 1 Day on Saturday, April 8 and that will be a 3 Game Guarantee for $175. Our 12u and 14u ages can play the 2 Day, 4 Game Guarantee for $250. We also are awarding on top of trophies, each winning team will receive a dozen Got Game Wilson softballs and 1 Got Game Louisville Slugger bucket. This park has done a ton of work to get ready for our events this season and we hope teams will come give them a try. IF your team would like to play in this event or any of our events please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have added Freedom Park in Eden NC to our list of parks for our “Have A Heart” tourney set for April 22, 23. Since the 12u age is already FULL at the YMCA in Eden, we will now use Freedom Park to add up to 15 more 12u teams. 14u and 16u/18u is also already FULL but they are playing in the Greensboro area so we are trying to add 1 more park in that area. 10u is playing at Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC and they can take 6 more teams. IF you are a 14u or a 16u/18u team please let us add you to Waiting Lists if you would like to play. We will do our best to secure another park in that area or we will tweak our format to get in as many teams in as possible. We will add Freedom Park to the list of parks on our Who’s Playing Spring/Fall page on website this afternoon. 12u teams now have more spots available. To sign up for this event or any of our tourneys, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We wanted to provide an update to the NO Time Limit/Complete Game Tourneys that we discussed at our Coaches Meeting last night. We discussed with coaches at our meeting the possibility of us having a tourney for each age this season where we do NOT have time limit on games. Based on their input we have decided to try this format. For this event, 1ou will be 6 Inning Games and 12u, 14u and 16u/18u will be 7 Inning games (Run rules will apply) For each tourney, each team will play 2 Games on Saturday and 2 Games on Sunday. Teams will play 1 game on, 1 game off each day. There will be NO Trophies/Awards. We want to see the interest in this type of event and if/when we will do again in 2017 or beyond. We will update website this evening with this new format but we are listing below the info for each age and how many teams we can take in each age. Please email us at email@example.com IF your team would like to enter. We will gauge the interest on these events to see if we host more in the future. 10u – May 6, 7 at Freedom Park in Eden NC (MAX 12 Teams) 12u – May 20, 21 at Summerfield Athletic Park in Summerfield NC (MAX 12 Teams) 14u – May 20, 21 at Freedom Park in Eden NC (MAX 12 Teams) 16u/18u – June 3, 4 at Freedom Park in Eden NC (MAX 12 Teams)
