I wanted to let teams know that I will take teams for this Saturday’s 1 Day, Labor Day weekend tournament up until Noon on Wednesday, September 2nd. I will have schedule posted by 6pm that evening. If you would like to enter please email me at email@example.com.
I wanted to let everyone know that we have reached a new 3 Year Agreement with Decker Sports to allow the Decker Shark ASA Softball to continue to be the “OFFICIAL BALL OF GOT GAME FASTPITCH”. We are very excited that Decker believes in us and OUR FUTURE!
I had planned to release this information in October but many teams have been requesting them, so I will post some information now on our 2016 Pre-Paid Tournament Packages. Teams can now purchase these packages now for the 2016 SEASON. For $1200 teams will receive 5 PRE-PAID Tournament cards that can used at any of our 4 Game Guarantee events. With pretty much all events set to be between $295 and $315 (4 Game Guarantees) next season, teams will actually be receiving 1 FREE Tournament by purchasing a package. At this time, I will be selling 10 of these packages (LIMIT 2 per team) beginning tonight. I may also sell a limited supply in December and January although that has not been decided yet. I will begin taking requests at firstname.lastname@example.org for those interested in purchasing a package(s). These tournament cards will be VALID for 2016 AND 2017. They are NON-TRANSFERABLE to other teams. I will email teams back and let them know if they requested a package(s) in time. I will give teams until September 30th to pay. Once you receive confirmation from me that you can purchase a package(s), please send payment to: Got Game NC ASA Attn: Tournament Package 195 Beaver Run, Eden NC 27288
I wanted to let teams know that we already have over 50 teams signed up for our “Paint it Pink 3” set for October 10,11 and that I have now designated ages and parks they will play at. I also am counting down the teams for those parks. Once those parks are FULL, I will begin to move any signing up for Pleasant Garden Community Center in Pleasant Garden. That is my backup park once ages get FULL. As long as you get on the Who’s Playing list while there are spots available, your team will play at the park(s) that I have designated above that age. AFTER that age is FULL, and you sign up, you will be placed at Pleasant Garden. I will also add you to the Waiting List for your age and if someone drops I will move you in to their park(s). I am trying to give all teams a heads up of my plans. Right now there are spots open in all ages but I have been adding 4 and 5 teams a day to this tourney. Please email me at email@example.com to enter this event.
I wanted to let teams know that I have now designated parks for all ages for our “Paint it Pink 3” and our “Monsterjam 3” tournaments in October. Some ages are getting close to being FULL for “Paint it Pink”. Each of the last 2 years I have felt bad about turning teams away for these events, but I post our FULL Schedule each February to the website. This is your reminder to get signed up if your team would like to enter. Once again this year, the beneficiary of our “Paint it Pink 3” Breast Cancer Awareness tournament will be the Hospice House of Rockingham County NC. We will once again use Pink softballs in our Warmup games and hand those out as Tournament MVP Game Balls in each Final. Once Pool/Bracket play begins we will use our Decker Shark softballs. For our “Monsterjam 3” tournament, teams can once again dress up in costumes as long as they do not wear anything that is baggy and could catch on a player during play. We will have several contests that tourney for Best Dressed categories. It is always a fun time at both of these events and we hope to sell ALL the teams participating wearing some pink on their uniforms for our “Paint it Pink” events. I will have pictures posted soon to our Instagram page (GOTGAMEFASTPITCH) of our tournament shirts for these events. We have sold out in 2 hours before for both of these tournament shirts so get to the park early to get yours.
I wanted to let teams know that we have just added Parker Park in South Hill VA for October 17,18. The 1st 10 teams to sign up can play a 4 Game Guarantee for $250. We will take 5 teams in 10u,12u,14u and 16u/18u. 20 teams total. I will add this tourney to our Who’s Playing list tomorrow. We are visiting more parks in VA today. NC road trips coming soon. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
I wanted to go ahead and let everyone know the final results in all ages for our Summer Showdown Series. I will have our Points Page updated later this week but I am able to post the Top 3 in each age now. I need ALL 12 teams to send me an email so we can begin work on their prize packages for their teams. Email me at email@example.com. ALL teams will receive their stuff at our “Paint it Pink 3” on October 10,11 OR their 1st tourney with us after that 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 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 wanted to let 8u teams know that I am adding 5 dates for 8u tourneys over the rest of the season. I will be adding them to the Who’s Playing and Tournaments pages tomorrow. ALL the 5 tourneys will be a 1 Day, 3 Game Guarantee for $125. ALL of the 5 events will be at Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC. The dates are: August 22, September 5, September 26 and Oct 10 (our Paint It Pink 3). If your team would like to enter please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
