Additional information:
This weekend - July 13-15 - is for the 16U,18U, & 18+ age groups. The 14U age group play their World Series the following weekend July 20-22, and the younger age groups - 8U,10U,12U - will play their World Series the following weekend July 27-29. In 2017 we sold out this tournament with 188 teams and we hope to do the same in 2018. ...........................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 6 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. 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 an in-house fundraising opportunity for those teams who wish to take advantage of it to raise money for this extra special tournament. 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. And pick-up players are more than welcome - you do not need a pre-set roster ................................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 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 188 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 and competitive tournament................ .........................*******************ALSO THIS YEAR********************Although this is not an official college recruiting tournament, because of the size of the tournament, we do have many college coaches attend. The number of college coaches will depend on how many girls that are in the tournament email the college coaches of the schools they are interested in, and ask them to come watch them play. Because of this we are putting together a player profile book for those girls who are possibly interested in playing in college to hand out to the college coaches*************ALSO THIS YEAR **************** Because of the numerous requests from travel ball coaches, we are going to have All Star Games in 2018. We think it is an important part of making the World Series more enjoyable for the girls. The All Star Games will be coached by college coaches. While college coaches will certainly be in attendance, the purpose of the All Star games is that the girls will have a more enjoyable World Series experience, and at the same time have a chance to meet and enjoy the opportunity of playing with players from other teams who love the game of softball. In the past many lifelong friendships have been formed. .................................................... In 2018 we will also host a PLAYER DEVELOPMENT AND RECRUITING CLINIC on Thursday July 12 before the tournament taught entirely by college coaches.(details are on our ...........................................................................AGAIN THIS YEAR WE ARE VERY EXCITED to announce that we will continue our offer with the NFCA. We have again reached an agreement with the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) to 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.
