    ***********  EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT FOR 2019 *************

    We are extending our offer of a one year membership to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) to all coaches (at 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U) that have not received their complimentary one year membership from us previously and are not already NFCA members.  This is good for all of the coaches for any of our tournaments who register for our tournaments before April 1st.  We feel the NFCA is by far the best organization working to grow softball, and the benefits of a membership are many (click here for a list of benefits). Most importantly, we feel the many opportunities they offer to make you a better coach – drills, educational videos and books, instructional manuals, monthly tips, practice plans, coaches clinics, exclusive "Coaching Tools", etc. – will help grow the sport of softball in our area, and make your experience as a coach more effective and more enjoyable. As a coach you are a teacher first, and they offer the knowledge and experience for you to continue to grow. It is up to you to take advantage of what they offer, but we wanted to give all of the coaches that participate in our tournaments the opportunity to do so.

    Your membership will be activated during the first 2 weeks of the month following your Fastpitch Showdown Tournament registration and will be good for 1 year.  We think that you will find the membership so beneficial that you will renew your membership on your own the following year.



    *************************************************************************************************************************************************************

    We have been involved with fastpitch for over 30 years and have seen it grown from its infancy to one of the largest women's participation team sports in the country. The theme of all of our tournaments is fun, friendship and good competitive softball. Our tournaments also benefit the our sister organization Fastpitch for the Cure, as we believe it is important that the girls are aware that there are things more important than softball. We sincerely invite you to join us, and if you do or do not, always enjoy the game of fastpitch softball.

    Fastpitch Showdowns...Let the games begin!


    "A hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...  But the world may be different because I coached and was important in the life of a girl."
