Come join us for some fun and lots of softball over the holiday weekend! And it will be at one of the nicest complexes in the state of Michigan. We will have 12u, 14u,16u and 18u divisions, and all teams will be guaranteed 5 games. As with all Fastpitch Showdowns, the pool play games will be 90 minutes long so you get a realistic chance to finish the game or at least get the feel for a full game. And with each team getting a minimum of 5 games, there will be plenty of enjoyable softball going on. Each team will play 4 games of pool play on Friday and Saturday and depending on how your team did in pool play, each team will be seeded into either the "A" or "B" single-elimination tournament on Sunday. Throughout the entire tournament, coaches can bat up to their entire lineup and freely substitute in the field. Again this year we will have something a little different -- just for fun. Because of the number of Canadian teams we traditionally host at the tournament, we will continue to have a "United States vs. Canada" factor to the tournament. Every time a Canadian team plays a U.S. team in pool play, we will award one point to the winner. At the end of pool play we will add up the number of points for each country, and the country that has the most number of points will be declared that year's winner. We will have a large trophy that will have the winning country posted, and will keep it at the complex restaurant until the following year. This isn't anything formal and the competitions will be random, but it's something we hope adds a little bit of fun and excitement to the tournament for the teams. The Cup has gone back and forth over the years with Canada winning the inaugural cup in 2015. The US won in 2016 and 2018 while Canada won in 2017 and 2019! Due to feedback we received from coaches as well as the Canton Sports Complex, we are no longer charging an individual admission fee at the gate for parents and fans. We are collecting a flat admission fee of $175 ($225 CAD) per team. The admission fee is a separate fee from the registration fee. For more information on the tournament including revised admission procedure and how to get the discounted rate as a Canadian team, please go to the Motor City Showdown page at
