I wanted to let teams know that ALL 10u teams wanting to play 1 Day at Summerfield Athletic Park in Summerfield NC that they can play a 3 Game Guarantee for $195. Also, ALL 12u and 14u will play a 4 Game Guarantee for $250. ALL Teams MUST ENTER by MONDAY, August 3rd at NOON to get this entry fee. Will take 12 total 10u teams at Summerfield and 10 teams in 12u and 14u. 16u/18u will be playing at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC and I can take 5 more teams. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
We can take 4 more teams for our Summer Showcase #2 set for Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC August 14-16. I need all teams to make sure they get us their ENTRY fee and t-shirt sizes for their players by Monday, August 3. Each team will receive up to 13 tournament shirts for their players. I also need to know if your team will be unable to play on Friday, August 14th. IF I do not hear from your team, a game will be scheduled that Friday. I will use the paper wristbands to identify players graduation years to the college coaches. Each college coach was given a packet with Gametimes and a code sheet letting them know which color wristband denoted what graduation year. They all were good with this system. I will take teams for our Showcase up until next Thursday at 3pm. I will have the schedule posted that night by 9pm. Please send in entry fee and t-shirt sizes by Monday to: Got Game Summer Showcase #2, 195 Beaver Run Eden NC 27288. You do NOT need to turn in graduation years to me at this time. I will provide plenty of the wristbands in your team packet. I do encourage teams to provide us an extra copy of your player profiles. Most of the coaches this past weekend just came and took the profile sheets off my table rather than from yours hanging on fence during games. We will provide a table for your to put them on. It is best to have them on a clipboard so they do not blow away. As we did this past weekend we will have a Coaches Hospitality tent set up on Saturday from 10am until 4pm and on Sunday from 10am until 3pm. There will be NO Gate fees on Friday for the games that day. Please let me know if your team would like to enter by emailing me at email@example.com.
I still have MANY teams that have not VERIFIED their Gametimes for this weekend. Please email me or text me at 910.690.3556 to let me know you received your times.
I have several teams wanting to let me know tomorrow if they can play this weekend so I will take teams up until 3pm on Wednesday, July 29 at 3pm. I will have GAMETIMES posted by 6pm that evening. Please go to our Who’s Playing section and click on Spring/Fall to see the spots available at a particular event for this weekend.

Since we began our association with NC ASA in June, I have been asked several times concerning our move up date policy that I posted earlier this season. I have decided that instead of waiting until next season to adopt the ASA age guidelines, I will begin it this season. I have listed below a statement from the ASA code book. Any player eligible for the age that she is playing now, will be eligible to play it the rest of this year. I am working to simplify our additions/exceptions to the ASA Rule book and this is one of the items that we were different on. I had to go to the age policy in 2016, but it was up to me to finish out our season with my move up policy for October 1st or adopt the ASA guidelines now. I feel it is best for us to move forward and adopt it now. I hope those who disagree with my decision will understand that this opportunity with ASA did not materialize until late Spring and it came together really quickly. I have been wrestling with this decision for weeks and now is the time to announce it. Thanks to all of our teams for their support. We will celebrate our 2 year anniversary next month and we are excited that we are now a part of ASA.
The ASA code book for 2010 states that a player’s age on December 31 determines which division that player will be eligible to play in the following year. All players must have proof of age upon registration regardless of division. Younger players may play in older divisions but not vice versa.
I wanted to let teams know that we were just given Springwood Park in Burlington NC for August 1. I will take 20 TOTAL teams for this park. The 1ST 12 TEAMS TO SIGN UP WILL PLAY A 3 GAME GUARANTEE FOR $170. Others will play 3 Game Guarantee for $195. I will add it to our TOURNAMENTS and SPRING/FALL pages soon. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
I also wanted to let teams know that our “Battle of the Bats” set for August 8,9 will now be our 1st of 2 “Strike Out Hunger NC” events. Coming off our success of our “Strike Out Hunger VA” tournament from this past weekend, I have decided to move up our date to begin our 2 NC events. ALL parks will have pick up at the parking lots at their parks and I will have more details soon as to which organizations will be the recipients at each park but I do know that “Allied Churches” will be the recipients of the donations at Springwood Park in Burlington. They provide food to the Homeless of their area. WE CHALLENGE ALL TEAMS TO DONATE AT LEAST 100 CANS. We raised over 6000 pounds in VA this past weekend so that is the GOAL FOR NC. Please let me know if you would like to enter this special event.
I will have GAMETIMES posted to website tonight by 8pm. I am still waiting on a few more teams to let me know if they can play.
I wanted to give everyone a total of what the teams that played in our “Strike Out Hunger VA” raised for the Southwest VA Food Bank – The total now is 5800 pounds BEFORE they weigh all the peanut butter that was donated. The total will be OVER 6,000 0r 3 tons. We are all so proud of the teams, parents, fans etc that brought food out over Saturday and Sunday in Salem and Roanoke VA. They had asked me last week to let teams know that their item of the month they needed was peanut butter and they were so happy to receive so much of it for the families they serve. We have 1 more “Strike Out Hunger VA” and 2 more “Strike Out Hunger NC” events still to come this season. I would love to see the 4 events raise over 20000 pounds or 10 tons of food this season. God bless all of our #GotGameNation!
I have just received a new date for Appomattox VA. I will be adding Appomattox Community Park to our schedule this evening. Our event went very well there in March despite all the weather delays. I will be adding September 26,27 in Appomattox VA to our Who’s Playing and Tournaments pages tonight.
