Knights of Columbus State Softball Tournament
“New” Recreational Division

       Our State K.C. Softball Tournament will now feature a “Recreational” division. This division has been established for councils that have not yet put together a team or for established teams that have not faired will in the “Open” or “Master’s” divisions but still want to promote the fraternalism of the Knights of Columbus.
       This division will have its own tournament, which will be played in conjunction with the “Open” and “Masters” tournaments. The winner of the “Recreational” tournament will receive a trophy but can not advance beyond the state level of play. Teams in the “Recreational” tournament may move to the “Open or “Master” divisions the next year or whenever they feel they are ready.
        Teams in the “Recreational” tournament may be made up of players from different councils, two or more councils may go together to form a team. However, players may not play in two divisions. If a player plays in the “Recreational” division, they cannot play in the “Open” or “Masters” Division and vice versa.

Entry fee for the “Recreational” tournament is $85.00 plus a $15.00 ASA registration fee.
Total entry: $100.00
