Eau Claire Fastpitch presents

51st Annual Eau Claire Fastpitch Classic

June 23-June 25, 2017

Eau Claire, Wisconsin

 

Welcome

 Wisconsin’s premier girls softball tournament will be held on June 23rd to June 25th 2017 in Eau Claire.

 Our tournament has prided itself on excellent competition and being a regional draw for teams from all over the Midwest. Why is this such a popular destination tournament for so many teams every year? We stay on schedule, the facilities are excellent, and the competition is always good.

 Each year we look at what we do, how we do it and what can we do better to make each teams experience a positive experience regardless of the game scores.

Tournament changes: This year’s tournament is being reduced from 100 teams to 64 and the number of sites is being reduced to four. 12U, 14U and 16U will have 16 teams and 10 and 18U will have 8 team fields. There will be no favoritism for team registrations, we will accept registrations on a first come first serve basis and we expect the tournament to be filled by March. So be sure to submit your forms and fees as quickly as possible. Registrations without payment will not be accepted

Concessions: Will be handled by the Eau Claire Fury at all park locations so you can expect reasonable pricing and good selection. Please remember that this tournament serves as a fundraiser for the Eau Claire Fury and we are working hard at finishing our Jeffers Park home including lights. Carry in’s are prohibited and alcohol is strictly prohibited from both North High School and University Fields.

Umpire crews: All games at all ages will have two umpires this year

Good Sportsmanship: Is law at our tournament, not a guideline. Teams and or individuals will be asked to leave if they do not display good sportsmanship. Arguing calls, field changes, harassing umpires or tournament officials will get you thrown out. Remember that while this is a competitive game don’t set a bad example in front of your kids or fans. Mistakes happen and it’s a part of life. Our umpires are paid but the rest of the staff is strictly volunteer

Tournament Rosters: All rosters with player names and information will be due by Monday June 12 

When you arrive at the Park: When you arrive at your assigned park, please report to the Registration Table.

Directions: Teams will be playing at Carson Park, University Fields, North High School, and Jeffers Rd. All directions will be available at our website www.eauclairefastpitch.com

Tournament Format: 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U Pool Play will determine seeding. Tournament Director reserves the right to seed teams based upon previously submitted level of play information and based upon number of entries within each age group.

Teams will go into Gold, Silver, and Bronze divisions where applicable. There will be 2 umpires for all games.

First, second, and third place medals will be awarded in Gold, Silver and Bronze Brackets (if applicable) in the 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 U Divisions. 

There is a five game guarantee for all medal and age groups. 3 pool 2 bracket.

We do have limited bleacher seating, so we do recommend bringing your own chairs. The dugouts at University Fields are not covered.  You may want to bring tents or tarps.

Finally, our entry fees have changed for 2017. While we strive to keep our tournament costs down, the additional costs of adding a second umpire at the lower levels along with umpire and field maintenance costs have forced us to raise our entry fee to $425 at all levels
