Additional information:
This weekend - July 27-29 - is for teams at 8u, 10u, 12u. The 14u age group play their World Series the previous weekend July 20-22 and the older age groups 16u, 18u,18+ play their World Series - July 13-15. In 2017 we sold out this tournament with 190 teams (over 110 teams at 12u) and we hope to do the same in 2018. ...........................Open to all sanctioned teams - ASA, USSSA, PONY, TRIPLE CROWN, NAFA, AAU, AFA, USFA, or any other recognized sanctioning body. Part of the fun of this tournament is playing teams from different sanctioning bodies. And it is held at the largest softball complex in the United States - Berliner Park with 31 fields all at one complex. Are you tired of wondering all summer if you'll earn a World Series bid or if you know the right people? And then if you get a bid, you have to pay an exorbitant fee to enter (or an exorbitant admission charge) for a minimum number of games and play 1 game a day for 3 days while those hotel bills mount up? Well, so was I. We use a format where each team will play a minimum of 5 games in 3 days. And you don't have to worry about qualifying as the only condition is that you finish in the top 10 of any tournament you were in this year or last year (ie - no rec. teams). This way everyone - players, coaches, parents, and fans - can make definite plans in advance. And pick up players are welcome - you do not need a pre-set roster. Also, no admission fee is charged to your fans (the city of Columbus does collect a $5 per day parking fee.) This makes the tournament much more affordable to you as a team. .............................We will have the same amenities you'd expect at a World Series - 1. Opening ceremonies 2. Parade of teams 3. Skills competitions-- e.g. home run Derby, fastest pitcher, fastest touch them all, around the horn, outfield accuracy, etc. 4. Most Valuable Team awards 5. Team Spirit awards on YouTube 6. Gift swap 7. Pin trading 8. Programs 9. All Star Games. And to top it off we have NO COST in-house fundraising opportunity for those teams who wish to take advantage of it to raise money for this extra special tournament.(Details on our website - Our goal is to make the tournament as fun as possible for the greatest number of players. So throughout the tournament, coaches can bat up to the entire lineup if they choose, and there is free substitution in the field in both pool and bracket play. This will make it possible for every girl on the team to enjoy the tournament. ................................After pool play each pool will be divided into the top half and bottom half. All of the top half finishers will go into the Platinum Bracket and the bottom half finishers will go into the Gold Bracket. These two brackets will not meet. There will be medals and trophies for the winners of each bracket. That way even if the team did not do well in pool play they will have a chance to win their bracket. By following this format there will be no more 1st seeds playing 8th seeds in the first round of bracket play. Those games are not fun for either team. All this is available for $565 ($495 for 8u) for a 5 game guarantee. The preliminary information is on our website --, -- but certainly if you have any specific questions, feel free to let us know. Last year we had 190 teams, from 11 different states as well as Canada, at one complex, and we hope to do the same this year. So we invite all teams to come and face different teams from different sanctioning bodies, and have the girls enjoy a fun end of the season tournament................ ......................... ALSO THIS YEAR WE ARE VERY EXCITED to announce we will continue our offer with NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association). We will offer all coaches (at 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U) who sign up for a Fastpitch Showdowns tournament before April 1st and who are not already NFCA members, a complimentary one-year trial membership in NFCA ! We feel the NFCA is by far the best organization working to grow softball, and the benefits of a membership are many. Most importantly, we feel the many opportunities they offer to make you a better coach drills, educational videos and books, instructional manuals, monthly tips, practice plans, coaches clinics, exclusive "Coaching Tools", etc. will help grow the sport of softball and make your experience as a coach more effective and more enjoyable. As a coach you are a teacher first, and they offer the knowledge and experience for you to continue to grow. It is up to you to take advantage of what they offer, but we wanted to give all of the coaches that participate in our tournaments the opportunity to do so.
