Wanted to let 14u teams know that we have 1 spot left for our tournament in Dublin VA set for September 20-21. Other ages are FULL. Thank you to all the teams that are playing in this event. We have a few spots left in 14u and HS ages for our tourney set for September 20-21 at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC and Oak Ridge NC. 10u and 12u are FULL. We can take 2 more in 14u and 3 more in HS for this event. Many of our events are FULL or filling up quickly for our Fall Season.
Due to the unique event we will be hosting next Saturday, I wanted to go ahead and lay out the format on GAMETIMES so teams could see now the approximate finish time of the parks. ALL PARKS will start at 7pm. I also listed the Site Directors at each park and their phone numbers should you need to contact them. As always, you can contact me at anytime with any questions you may have. I also wanted to remind teams that the format for the “All Nighter” events will be 2 Pool Games, to be seeded into Single elimination brackets. This is ALWAYS our Format for 1 Day events and this is just a 1 Day event being played at night. Pool games are 1 Hour Finish the Inning and pool games CAN end in a tie. For seeding purposes, a tie will count as 1/2 a win and 1/2 a loss. Bracket games for this event will be 1 Hour Finish inning. Finals will be 1 Hour 10 Minutes. I am already in contact with parks concerning this event for 2015. It took me some time to get approval from parks to lift curfews,etc to be able to play this event. Next year it will be July 4th weekend so not to interfere with players being in school. MY final decision on whether to put this event on next year will come from the feedback from coaches and parents so I welcome input after this event is complete. Our 1ou DAYTIME “Fall Brawl” on September 6 will begin at 9:00am at Freedom Park in Eden NC. I will have ALL Pool games listed on GAMETIMES by 6pm on Monday. I am hopeful any team(s) that has any issue with format and the times we are finishing parks, will let me know BEFORE 3pm on Monday. I will send out another post on Monday once GAMETIMES have been posted. Thanks, Tim
I still have a few teams that need to VERIFY again to me that they are still planning to play at Botetourt Sports Complex on September 13-14. We only have a few spots open for our Fall World Series set for September 20-21 at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC and Oak Ridge Town Park in Oak Ridge NC. 10u and 12u are FULL. We can take 2 more in 14u and 3 more in HS. We are also in Dublin VA at Randolph Park that same weekend and it is FULL is 12u and HS. Can take 3 more in 14u. I will have Gametimes posted by 6pm Monday, September 1 for our events on September 6. I am posting early so teams playing in our “All Nighter” portion of that day will have time to plan accordingly. Beginning this afternoon until Monday, if you can’t reach me and you need to speak to someone, please call Larry at 336.932.2979 or Kristie at 336.932.5876. I will be out of town until Monday. You can still call/text/email me but if I do not respond before you need an answer to a question, please contact Larry or Kristie. We wish everyone a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. Thanks for Playing GOT GAME!
I wanted to let teams know that I need to hear from ALL teams that are on the Who’s Playing list for Botetourt Sports Complex on Sept 13-14, to RE-VERIFY to me that they are still wanting to play. I have waiting lists and I have been informed that I will NOT be receiving any additional fields for this event, so I am set with the number of teams I have entered now. I must hear from ALL teams by next Wednesday, September 3rd that your team still intends to play. If I do NOT hear from your team by next Wednesday, I will make 1 attempt to contact you and verify you are still entered. If I can’t confirm with your team, I will begin to move teams in off the Waiting list. I also want teams to know that at this event your team will receive a couple forms that I MUST HAVE FILLED OUT AND RETURNED to ME BEFORE you leave on SATURDAY, September 13. You will receive this at check in with your team packet. We are honored to have been given a date at this facility this season and hope to receive more next year there and at Moyer Sports Complex in Salem VA. Please text me at 910.690.3556 or email me at email@example.com to let me know your team still intends to play. Thanks Tim
I wanted to let teams know that the Fairfield Inn by Marriott at the Greensboro Airport area has a special rate for our tournaments on September 20-21 and October 11-12. Please ask for Trish and the Got Game rate of $79 a night. There are a limited number of rooms available for both weekends. The 10u and 12u ages will be playing in “Paint it Pink” in Pleasant Garden NC and that is not far from the hotel and the September date most teams will be in either Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro and Oak Ridge Town Park in Oak Ridge. If we get enough teams, we also may be using Pleasant Garden that weekend as well. All these parks are within a few miles of the hotel. Please contact Trish at 336.841.0140.
Here are the Top 3 Teams in each of our ages for our Summer Showdown Series Points Race. Teams that haven’t been contacted yet about their prizes, I will begin doing that tonight. Many of these teams played over the weekend and have their prizes. Thank you to all the teams that participated in this Series. I will need from all 12 of these teams their players names, numbers and tshirt size. EACH team will receive on top of their other team prizes/individual prizes, a special edition tie dye shirt unique to their team. I should have these back in a couple weeks. Teams can pick up their stuff at their next Got Game tourney.

I wanted to let teams know that Got Game’s 1st 70 team field will be at our “Paint it Pink 2″ event set for October 11, 12. That was my goal for this tourney but since we have reached it 7 weeks out from the tournament, I will begin to find more parks to play at. I didn’t think we could get a 100 team field into probably Summer of 2015, but now that we are 70, I will try and reach that goal in October. Please let me know if your team would like to enter this event. I will add teams to Waiting lists and do all I can to get everyone in that wants to play. We have over 50 teams entered for our “All Nighter” night tournament set for September 6. I can take 2 more in 14u. Other ages are FULL. We can take 1 more 14u for this weekend in Lynchburg VA. I will begin the schedule for Lynchburg this afternoon so please let me know if your team would like that last spot.
I wanted to let all teams know that starting in September I will begin to split into Blue and Green brackets at 10 Teams instead of my usual 12. With many teams reforming and new teams coming out to play, I feel it is in best interest of teams to split at a lower number. For some events, I may even split at 9, but wanted everyone to know that at 1o teams I will definitely split brackets. Please remember that in September 2015 I will make teams move up to the age they will play in Spring of 2016. This Fall your team can continue to play at the age you have all season. If anyone has any questions, please let me know.
Now that school has begun again in Virginia, I wanted to remind teams that from now until next Summer, ALL “IF” Games will be an ITB(International Tie Breaker). During Summer months we allow the possibility of a full game for “IF” games but now that school is back in session, that is no longer a possibility. I wanted to make this clear now but teams will be reminded by Site Directors before each final for the next couple weeks that an”ITB” will be the “IF” game. Thanks
I am not a big advocate of any one cause, but one thing that has bothered me all my life is that people go to bed at night hungry in our country. Many families battle thru everyday just trying to feed their families. I would like Got Game Nation to help us do our part in making a difference. I am personally challenging EVERY coach that I know, be it thru HS ball, travel ball, etc. to donate 100 canned food items. Once I have my 100, I will post a pic on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I challenge you to send me pics with your items as well and I will post these. We will be collecting these at our LAST tournament on November 22-23, which will be held at 2 different locations. We will donate these to the NC Food Bank and if we can get help picking them up, to the Virginia Food Bank as well. You each have a few months to do this so no excuses. My goal is for us to have 5000 cans donated. These items will help families during Thanksgiving, Christmas and the winter months. Even if your team is not participating in our last event, I hope you will drop off your items. We will be playing at Springwood Park in Burlington NC and Eden/Reidsville NC. We will collect these items ONLY on November 22. We will have them picked up that day from the parks. Get those canned items bought and boxed up and get me pics! Thanks Tim
