The USSSA Fastpitch program will use a four-game format for the “C” divisions in this National Championship Tournament. Teams will be seeded into pool play. Based on the pool play results, all teams will be seeded into a double elimination championship bracket. The exact format of the tournament, e.g., number of games, number of teams in each pool, etc., will be set by the tournament director following USSSA Fastpitch guidelines as approved by the USSSA Fastpitch National Committee.
Below is a brief overview of the day by day schedule for this tournament:
Schedules will not be mailed out in advance per national policy. The pool play and double elimination brackets will be given to coaches during the Manager’s Check-In. Player, coach and other pre-tournament items will also be distributed at the Manager’s Check-In.
Note that all times are subject to change. Please verify the itinerary during the Manager’s Check-In. Once the tournament begins, managers must check the main bracket board and/or online schedule for any changes in game times, field assignments or other items related to tournament play or functions.
All teams and their families are invited to kick-off the tournament by participating in the event’s opening ceremony celebration held at Championship Plaza’s field #1 (turf) at Hanson Park (22831 Hanson Park Drive, Aldie, VA 20105).
Get in the spirit with our Beach Theme at the opening celebration with a team parade, games, relays, official merchandise sales, and more!
Teams should start to line up at 3:00pm for the team parade scheduled to start at 3:30pm with on-field games and activities running until 5:00 pm. (Players are highly discouraged from wearing any types of feathers or other pieces of costumes that could come off and liter the field.)
