Eau Claire Fastpitch presents
51st Annual Eau
Claire Fastpitch Classic
June 23-June 25,
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.
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
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
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
