As the season nears we wanted to update teams on a few items. For our teams in NC, we recommend teams get their Team Insurance and/or Individual Player ID cards thru Bollinger Insurance. IF your team purchases the player ID cards, then we will waive your $40 team sanction for 2018. For those who only purchase Bollinger team or any other insurance, you will still need to sanction your team for USA Softball for 2018. We have listed below both links.

We wanted to let teams know of a unique event that will take place on March 3 in Durham at Softball Rebellion. The info is listed below. We may do more of these events during the season and plan on doing several next off season. We were given a tour of the this facility this past week and it is very impressive with state of the art equipment.
Softball/Baseball Rebellion is a 12,500 square foot facility in Durham, NC. We are reaching out today because we are hosting an Indoor HitTrax Tournament on Saturday, March 3rd from 2pm-5pm
is a ball tracking system that allows hits and pitches to be tracked and displayed in real-time; think of a golf simulator for softball. We have four (4) HitTrax machines at our indoor facility that allow us to play simulated games. The HitTrax calls balls & strikes, tracks hits, simulates baserunning & fielding, and keeps stats. Because of the pace of play of the HitTrax games, teams will only be comprised of 5-6 players. This will allow teams of 10-12 to split into two (2) different teams and double the number of at-bats you’d get at a normal tournament. The tournament setting is focused on hitting so the Softball Rebellion instructors will be the full-time throwers to provide consistency to all the games. Additional tournament details are as follows:
- Teams consist of 4-6 hitters – Cost of Entry is $99 per team
- Each game will be 6 innings long
- Guaranteed three full games
- Championship game for the top two teams
- Winning team gets a Softball Rebellion prize pack!
We are honored to announce that we will be hosting the 1st VS. Cancer Foundation softball event in the state of North Carolina on September 29 and 30 in Summerfield and Eden NC. The VS Cancer Foundation raises money for pediatric brain tumor research. The profits from our event will be split with half going to the their national brain tumor research and Larry, Kristie and myself have decided that our half will go to Brenner’s Children Hospital in Winston Salem in the name of Taylor Foster. Taylor spent time at this hospital during her battle and we feel this is the perfect place to donate to. We will have more details on website soon but just so teams know, once they enter we will get their info to a VS. Cancer director and each team will be given a team page and we will track each teams fundraising efforts. Our goal for each team is to raise $1000 and for all teams that meet that goal then their team will all receive a tourney shirt and will be entered into a drawing for 1 of 4 FREE Tourney cards that can be used in 2019. We hope to have more items for drawings as we talk to potential sponsors and have items donated. We also encourage teams to sign up EARLY so we will know if we need to book more fields. Right now we only have 2 parks for that weekend. You can see more about this foundation below. We are excited to show this foundation how the softball community comes together for events like this and raise a lot of money to help cure cancer.
