I wanted to let teams know that our 1st Summer Showcase set for Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC on July 24-26 is NOW FULL. I will add teams to WAITING LISTS and IF a team(s) have not paid by July 3rd, I will move in team(s) off waiting list and give them until July 10th to pay entry fee. I wanted to go over a few of the items concerning this event:
-Teams MUST pay Entry Fee AND turn in Player Sizes for t-shirts by July 3rd. ALL players will receive a Showcase shirt.
-There will be NO GATE FEES collected. That is included in Entry Fee.
-Unless we have a team(s) drop, IF you decide NOT to play on Friday, you will get to play 4 games. I have booked the park for Friday and posted from the beginning that teams would get 1 game Friday, 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday.
-I will use paper wristbands for the college coaches to distinguish ages. I will have different colors for the following: Rising Freshman, Rising Sophomore, Rising Junior, Rising Senior and Unsigned Seniors. We will need you in your envelope with payment and t-shirt sizes to let me know how many of each you will need. I will give you enough for each player for 3 days and you will pick up on Friday July 24th at check in.
-I encourage each team to have the info you wish college coaches to see about your players hanging on the fence beside your dugout each game. I will have you turn in profiles for your players to us but many times coaches will come by and get out of your basket etc your schedule for rest of season and review player info. I have/will be contacting more college coaches but if there is a particular school you are interested in for your player(s), you need to be contacting them to let them know you will be playing in this event.
-Gametimes will be as follows: Friday and Saturday Gametimes will be 1 Hour 30 Minutes Finish the Batter. I had planned to do 1 Hour 20 Minutes but I decided on 1 Hour 30 for Friday and Saturday since I am reducing your times on Sunday to 1 Hour 10 Minutes Finish batter so we will be finished by 5pm. We will be finished by 7pm on Saturday. We will begin play on Friday at 3pm. We will finish Friday around 9:30pm. I will take requests for game slots soon for Friday. I will be unable to accommodate all. I will post schedule by July 10th so please get me your requests in as early as you can.
-We will have a Hospitality Tent set up for ALL coaches, College/University/Team coaches ALL 3 Days.
-We will also have during the Showcase an NCAA Umpire Training Camp ran by Christie Cornwell. Christie will be evaluating and training NCAA umpires in 2 man and 3 man mechanics during the Showcase. You can visit her bio and camp information at www.DiamondUmpireAcademy.com. Christie is a 3 Time NCAA College World Series Finals Umpire.
-Please get us your Entry Fee, T-shirt sizes and Wristband info to us NO LATER than July 3rd to hold your spot. I will note on our Who’s Playing as teams pay and spot secured. Being FULL this early is a good thing but I do anticipate more wanting in so secure your spot now. Send to Got Game NC ASA 195 Beaver Run Eden NC 27288 Attn: Showcase #1
