Teams that did not attend 1 of our Coaches meetings are asking about sanctioning for 2014 and we are working on adding a 2014 Got Game Sanction form under our Forms headline. Until we get the form added here is info we need:

We need team name, coaches name, address, email, cell number and age group. We do have a form on there that you can use and just mark thru 2013 and write 2014. We mistakenly had that one added instead of the new one for 2014.
Welcome to our new site. We are excited to be able to provide you with a more robust experience.

Coaches/Parents – This is something I didn’t anticipate having to comment on but it has now become evident that I need to. I have received many calls from coaches and parents letting me know that people in a couple of states are telling teams/coaches/parents that they are State Directors for Got Game. While we do have plans to be in 5 states by Fall 2015, at this time we have NO STATE DIRECTORS in any state. The growth of Got Game has been quite a bit quicker than I anticipated and although I take this as a compliment of how we are doing things, it became clear to me that I needed to make a statement. We will one day have State directors as we continue to grow, but at this time anything that pertains to Got Game is overseen by me. We fully anticipate being in NC, Virginia, South Carolina, West Virginia and Tennessee by Fall 2015, and if we name a State director in any of these states, I will make an announcement as to who we have hired. I hope this clears up any confusion that may have been created about this matter. Thank you all for your support of Got Game.
We will be selling a limited number of our Buy 4 Get 1 Free Tournament Packages for $1000 now that High School age season will begin soon for us. Teams will receive 4 Pre-paid tournament cards and 1 Free tournament card. These are good for any 2 Day tourney(3 Day tourneys teams will pay $75 in addition to card) and NEVER EXPIRE. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in purchasing a package. We will have these for sale only for 2 weeks and we have a limited amount available. We understand it is later in the season before HS age teams begin to raise money so we saved a few of these packages for now to be fair to those who couldn’t purchase them when we offered earlier this year.
I will be accepting teams into this tourney up UNTIL Tuesday, April 22 at 6pm. I will then begin to work on pool games and brackets and will have them posted to website BY 6pm on Wednesday, April 23. I also wanted to remind everyone we will be having a raffle at each of our 3 parks for a new, 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno -10 Drop bat. Tickets will be $1 and winner will be able to pick which size bat they would like. ALL proceeds from these raffles will go to Taylor and her family. Other money will raise will go to fund our Taylor Foster Scholarship fund that we set up last year. If anyone has any items that they would like to donate so we can raffle or silent auction, please let me know. Many teams have asked how they can help and it is great seeing that. We hope to raise a lot of money for Taylor and our scholarship fund. I have mentioned this before, but ALL players will receive a special medallion for playing in this event and ALL teams will receive a plaque. We decided that we wanted every player and team to have something from this tournament so instead of just trophies/plaques for a certain amount of places in each age, we would make sure we included everyone. We will also be selling the medallions for $5 at each park. Pre-order t-shirt sales for this event are DUE BY FRIDAY, April 18th at NOON. We will have a limited supply of tourney shirts at each park, so if there is a size you want, please PRE-ORDER and we will have at your park to pick up. To pre-order shirts for this event, email me at email@example.com with your team, size and quantity. And we will make sure they are at the correct park for you to pick up. We hope everyone has a Happy Easter with their families.
Coaches/Parents/Players – We can take 5 more teams in 10u, 5 more in 12u and 1 more in 14u for our tourney next weekend, April 26-27. We have 13 teams in 10u, 17 in 12u and 11 in 14u. As is noted on our Who’s Playing SPRING/FALL on website, 1ou will be played at Freedom Park in Eden NC; 12u will be played at YMCA in Eden NC; and 14u will be played at Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC. We also wanted to update teams as to new areas that Got Game is negotiating with to host tourneys. We are looking at holding tourneys at Lions Club in Appomattox VA, Sugar Hollow Park in Bristol VA, Deer Winged Park in Johnson City, Tennessee and Jackson River Park in Covington VA. We just got back from a 2 day road trip to visit these parks and facilities. We are also still working on having a fall date at Botetourt Sports Complex in Troutville VA. There is also the possibility we will be picking up 2 or 3 extra dates at Springwood Park in Burlington NC later this Summer and Fall. I will do my best to keep teams updated if we add any of these parks to our 2014 Spring/Fall schedule. Hope to see many of you next weekend at our tourney and thank you all for being a part of GOT GAME NATION!
We have added Freedom Park in Eden NC for our Taylor Foster Benefit Tournament set for April 26-27. We also will be playing at the YMCA in Eden NC and Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC. I will update this info on the Who’s Playing Spring/Fall schedule.
Coaches, I had no plans to sell our Decker Shark softballs to teams but I continue to get asked about them so I will post this to teams. IF I get a large enough order, I will place an order from Decker. We will sell the NEW Decker Shark tournament softballs to teams for $55 a dozen. IF I receive a large enough order from teams, I will place the order. Teams will be REQUIRED TO PRE-PAY us before the order is placed. Several teams are on our list to have the option to buy 24 USED Decker softballs with a bucket for $50 but it may take the entire season for me to fulfill the list as it has several teams on it. So many teams have asked me to sell them the NEW softballs. I will take orders for 2 weeks and then evaluate if it is large enough to place an order from Decker. Please NO TEXTS or CALLS to place your order. IT HAS TO BE BY EMAIL to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send me team info along with size of softballs and how many dozen you want. I will let teams know by email and by an update on website if I have enough to place the order.
We want to invite everyone to start following Got Game on Twitter. Our following on Facebook has been tremendous and we are hoping to reach 100 followers on Twitter soon. Come join us @TimDobyGGF.

Coaches/Parents/Players/Umpires – On our UMPIRES section on website I have listed 44 Umpiring/Softball Myths. This would be a very beneficial document to look over before the season begins.
