I wanted to provide an update concerning this coming weekend’s Spring Training event. I have heard from a couple teams that they are waiting to see forecast tomorrow and if they have enough players to play. I will decide tomorrow (Tuesday, March 3rd) by Noon if we have enough teams to play. IF we play it will be Saturday, March 7th ONLY. BOTH 12u and 14u need 2 more teams in order for us to have enough to play. We will play at Freedom Park in Eden NC. Please email me ASAP if your team is interested in playing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also wanted to remind coaches that the deadline for 10u thru 14u teams to take advantage of our Play 10, Get 1 Free Promotion is March 22nd. 16u/18u teams have until May 17th to turn in their lists. Teams can submit their list of 11 Tournaments to me by email. You CAN alter your list as need be during the season but I MUST have your list turned in by the deadline dates. Once your team has completed your 10 tournaments, you will be given your FREE tournament card. Your FREE tournament card will need to be used in 2015. If you have any questions please email me at email@example.com.
I wanted to provide an update concerning a couple topics. A few teams have called me and asked about next weekend. We have our Spring Training 1 Day events set for our 1st 2 weekends. IF we can get 4 teams in 2 age groups, THEN we will play. I know many of you are waiting to see how the weather forecast looks nearer next weekend, but I have to let the parks know if we are playing as well as booking umpires. I will decide this Monday, March 2nd at Noon if we will play or not. Our 1st 2 weekends (March 7,8 and March 14,15) are 4 – 1 Day events. You can play 1 day for $150 (3 Games) or play both days for $275 (6 Games). As of now we do not have enough teams signed up to play so I am asking teams now to let me know if you are considering playing.
We have added to our website UNDER Who’s Playing information concerning our Showcase Events. We will need teams participating in our Showcases to fill out the Entry Form and return to us with fee and players t-shirt sizes by the dates noted. We also will need the coaches to turn in to us a Player Profile for each player. We have included that form as well. I am working on my list of college coaches to contact but I remind coaches/parents that they also need to be in contact with colleges/universities as well. I will post a list of confirmed coaches that will be in attendance as the events get closer. We will be giving each player a tournament shirt so please remember to include the sizes your team needs with your entry fee. Please let me know if you have any questions by calling/texting me at 910.690.3556 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have added a HOTEL INFORMATION heading on our website. We are currently working on getting information listed and the Got Game rates that we have been given by our Preferred Hotels. We currently have Preferred Hotels for Greensboro NC, Burlington NC and Covington VA. We are working on a Got Game Preferred Hotel for Lynchburg VA, Salem VA, Roanoke VA as well as Martinsville VA. We have not gotten the rates that we are happy with in those cities but we hope soon to have a Preferred Hotel to recommend to our teams in those areas soon. We will post the addresses, phone numbers, contact person etc for our Preferred Hotels hopefully this weekend.
We hope that all of Got Game Nation is staying warm and safe during our latest blast of Winter. We are all ready to see our young ladies back on the Diamond!
Welcome below are some images from previous events.
I wanted to post a few notes concerning some of our events. I will decide next Monday morning (March 2nd) if we will play on either Saturday, March 7 or Sunday, March 8. I understand the weather we have had the last few weeks in NC and VA has affected team practices, parent meetings, etc. I also know many of you are waiting to see the forecast before entering one of our Opening Weekend Spring Training events. At this time we do not have enough teams signed up to play but I will wait until next Monday to make a decision.
At this time we can take 1 more 1ou and 1 more 12u for our tournament in Appomattox, VA on March 21,22. This is our 1st ever event at this park and we are very excited to see that is almost full over 3 weeks out. We hope to secure more dates at this park in 2016.
We are looking forward to warmer weather and getting our season underway.
I wanted to let coaches know that we are working on a Showcase Info page and it will be posted on website soon. It will be listed under our Who’s Playing header on the website. On this page will be information concerning our 2 Showcase events for 2015 to be played at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC. We will have the Player Profile Sheet we need all teams to fill out for our records as well as information concerning the due date of payment and player t-shirt sizes. We will be utilizing paper wristbands with different colors to show the graduation year of all players so be sure to have that listed on forms with t-shirt sizes. ALL players participating in our Showcases this year will receive a tournament shirt. Please check back soon for this page to be posted on our website.
I have just received our 2015 dates for Peaks View Park in Lynchburg VA. We averaged over 40 teams at our events there last season so I asked for and received the 5 dates requested. They are as follows: May 16-17, June 20-21, July 18-19, August 29-30 and October 3-4. I will add them to our Tournament list and Who’s Playing this afternoon.
We look forward to getting our season started and we hope many teams will take advantage of our 2 weekends of “Spring Training” to get their teams ready to start our Tournament portion of our schedule, which begins March 21. This season please remember that teams MUST enter our events by emailing me at email@example.com.
I wanted to let HS age Coaches know that I plan to split the 16u/18u into separate ages for 3 of our events in the Summer, if we can get at least 8 teams for each age. Last season we averaged over 24 HS teams total in those events so we should be able to offer this at those events. When entering those events, please make sure you note on your email to me that you are either 16u or 18u. If we begin to see that we can split the ages more we will. Most HS teams now have at least 1 player that makes them enter as 18u but we will see how this goes and adjust accordingly. So for now our plan is to offer at these 3 events and see the response we receive. I will be making the changes on the Who’s Playing list for those 3 events this evening on the website.
We now have our new Messageboard up and running. It will be easier and more efficient for everyone to navigate. I need everyone that had a post on our old Messageboard to register and add any posts to the new one. You can access our new Messageboard by going to TOURNAMENTS and scrolling down to MESSAGEBOARD.
I wanted to let teams know that next season we will be offering a “Play 10 Tournaments, Get 1 Free” offer. Teams will need to email their 10 Tournament list by March 15. I will verify with them that the dates I post online to Who’s Playing is correct and then save a copy of their list. If a team must alter their original list, they can add another date to replace the one they drop. The FREE tourney can even be 1 of our 3 Day events. I will have more details at beginning of 2015 season.
