We wanted to update teams on our tournaments the next 2 weekends. For our “Summer Slam NC’ set for this coming weekend our 10u and 12u will be 1 Day, Saturday tournaments. 10u will be played at either Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC or at the YMCA in Eden NC. The 12u age will be played at the YMCA. 14u will be at Freedom Park in Eden NC and it is a 5 Game Guarantee format. We can take 4 more teams in 14u. 16u/18u will be played at the YMCA in Eden NC. It is also a 5 Game Guarantee format. We will take teams up until 10am tomorrow, Wednesday, June 1st for this weekend. For our “Summer Slam VA” set for June 11,12 in Lynchburg VA at the moment all ages are FULL as we have 42 teams signed up. IF your team would like to play please let us know and we can add your team to the Waiting List. We have a few teams that will let us know this week if they are still able to play and if not we go to the 1st team listed on Waiting List and enter them in that spot. To enter please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The DEADLINE for us to receive payment for teams participating in our NC ASA State Championship in 10u, 12u and 14u is TOMORROW, June 1st. We have had this posted to our website as well as on the NC ASA website since February. IF your team has NOT sent out check, or you think we will not have it by tomorrow, we need you to contact us to let us know it is on the way. We will begin working on the schedule this Friday and post to our website, www.gotgamefastpitch.com by Monday, June 6. IF we have not received payment OR have had no contact from your team by Friday at 5pm, then your team will be removed from the tournament. Listed below is the format each age will have for the State Tournament. We need for 6 of the 16 10u teams to play their Warmup game on Friday, June 11 at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC. The 10u warmup games would be around 7pm that Friday for those 6 teams. For those 6 teams they will get to play 1 Hour 30 Minute Warmup games and begin their Bracket Play Saturday in Summerfield NC around Noon. Summerfield Athletic Park and Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro are about 10 minutes apart. We have had 2 commit to playing so far so we need 4 more 10u teams to play.
10u NC State Tournament Format – Each team will play 1 Warmup Game (1 Hour 15 Minute DROPS) then begin a 3 Game Guarantee bracket. Bracket Games will be 1 Hour 20 Minutes Finish Inning. This age will be split into RED and BLUE Brackets. Winners of each bracket will meet for Championship. 10u will play at Summerfield Athletic Park in Summerfield NC on June 11,12 (EXCEPT for the 3 Warmup games at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro on Friday evening)
12u NC State Tournament Format – Each team will play 1 Warmup Game on Friday, June 10 (1 Hour 30 Minute DROPS) then begin a 3 Game Guarantee bracket. Bracket Games will be 1 Hour 30 Minutes Finish Inning. This age will be split into RED and BLUE Brackets. Winners of each bracket will meet for the Championship. 12u will play at Carolyn Allen Park (and the 2 middle school fields next to Carolyn Allen) in Greensboro NC on June 10-12.
14u NC State Tournament Format – Each team will play 1 Warmup Game on Friday, June 10 (1 Hour 30 Minute DROPS) then begin a 3 Game Guarantee bracket. Bracket Games will be 1 Hour 30 Minutes Finish Inning. This age will be split into RED and BLUE Brackets. Winners of each bracket will meet for the Championship. 14u will play at Springwood Park in Burlington NC on June 10-12.
For the WARMUP Games ONLY, teams may bat their entire roster. ONCE Bracket Play begins, we will use the ASA Rulebook. This is an ASA Championship Play event so our normal Got Game Additions/Exceptions to the ASA Rulebook will NOT APPLY. We also remind teams that once we reach the Championship round, we could have 2 undefeated teams coming out of each bracket so we could possibly be looking at 3 games left to play. With the number of teams/fields we have to use for that weekend, that is why we must begin play on Friday, June 10th. At this point we look to begin the 12u Warmup Games around 2pm in Greensboro, NC and the 14u Warmup Games around 3pm in Burlington, NC. We have had teams let us know if they need later games but it would also help our scheduling to hear from teams that would like to play in the first time slots. IF your team has any questions please contact us at email@example.com or call/text to 910.690.3556.
