We host two of the largest softball tournaments in the country for 16u at one complex on successive weekends, with both the Buckeye Showdown Recruitfest and the North American All Sanctioned World Series having well over 100 16u teams and over 48 18u teams at each tournament. And this is all at the largest complex in the United States ( 31 fields ). The two tournaments have different objectives -- the RecruitFest main objective is to give the girls the most exposure to college coaches in a game like atmosphere, while the objective of the World Series is to provide the girls with an enjoyable and competitive tournament to end the year, or to get them ready for a sanctioned World Series. Each tournament is a 5 G/G for $495. We would like to give all the girls the experience of playing teams from different states, so if you do attend both tournaments and are from Rhode Island, we will gladly give you 10% off the combined entry fee. We realize it is a long way to come, and it is just a fraction of your total cost, but we figure every little bit counts. Your girls could go to the NFCA camp on Thursday, then play ball Friday - Sunday with great college exposure. Then Monday - Thursday they could enjoy some of the attractions of Ohio (e.g. Cedar Point Amusement Park, Kings Island, Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the campuses of some of our great universities, Easton Center (fantastic shopping), or dozens of our other attractions. (Or we could help you arrange some scrimmage games). Then Friday-Sunday they could enjoy opening ceremonies and another 3 great days of softball in an enjoyable and very competitive tournament. It would be an experience the girls would remember for the rest of their lives. So we encourage you to think about it. Again information on each tournament is on our website -- www.fastpitchshowdowns.com -- but certainly if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
