Event INFO Please READ
ALL ROSTERS MUST BE ONLINE- In the event there is a protest in seed play, the team found not to have all players rostered will forfeit the seed game 7-0 and the illegal player will not be allowed to play anymore during the event. Only the coach can file a protest and the protest must be filed with the home plate official. If a protest is filed and upheld in bracket play, the offending team will forfeit the immediate game. This is an Elite sports and GA FL fastpitch company rule. When playing other USSSA events, teams should consult their event info.
"IF" GAMES STARTING AFTER 10pm will be a one inning Texas tie breaker format. This policy is to get everyone home safely.
INCLEMENT WEATHER REFUND POLICY– Elite Sports/GA FL FASTPITCH COMPANY use both a 3-game format and a 4-game format. In the event of inclement weather, refunds will be made accordingly. In an event where the gate fee is included in the tournament price, only the tournament fee portion is refundable.
Example $365 fee with a $8 dollar gate fee. The $365 is refunded as follows below, however if the fee is 475 it is understood that the gate fee is included and is non-refundable. The gate fee in this instance is 110 of the 475 and will not be refunded. The purpose of the gate fee being non-refundable is that each park authority is different with some billing us the full amount once the event begins regardless of how far we make it before raining out. Field prep, scheduling, fence installation and staff costs are already being incurred long before the event starts.
Played one game of a 3-game format – receive 2/3 refund.
Played two games of a 3-game format– receive 1/3 refund.
Played one game of a 4-game format – get ¾ refund.
Played two games of a 4-game format – get ½ refund.
Played three games of 4-game format no refund.
If a game has completed three innings when it is called or (2 1/2 with home team ahead) it will be viewed as a whole game for scoring and for refund purposes. Directors reserve the right to change the format in time or number of games as needed to safely finish the event.
SHOWCASE REFUND EXCEPTION for INCLEMENT WEATHER. Due to the cost associated with a showcase, only a portion of the entry fee is refundable. The cost of organizing the event is nonrefundable once it begins and therefore, we cannot provide full normal refunds. Of the 1075 fee, the normal 365 for a tournament fee is still refundable based on games played. The additional fee has already been spent to provide cost reimbursement of housing coaches luncheon, food… for college recruiters and is not considered in a refund. Individual or team gate fees are not refundable.
LATE WITHDRAW POLICY – If a team withdraws after 12 noon on Tuesday, there will be a 75-dollar late withdrawal fee. This fee will be used to cover the cost of rescheduling the event. If a late withdrawal causes a division to collapse, the withdrawing team will be penalized the whole tournament fee and placed on prepay for 90 days.
High seed gets choice all the way through the bracket.
New pitching rule allows leaping. Visit USSSA to get an updated version of this rule.
Ejections for any reason will require a minimum of the current game and one additional game set out. Severity of offense may increase penalty up to one year suspension. Fighting, bullying, touching an official, profanity, unsportsmanlike behavior, disrespecting officials and staff, and alcohol use inside the park are all grounds for suspension from the event. Be nice. In the event someone is ejected postgame, they will be required to sit out a minimum of two games at the next event before returning. Ejected people must leave the park and be out of sight and sound of the game. Coaches are responsible for the conduct of their fans and players. This is the minimum but more serious infractions will be met with more severe penalties.
In parks, having curfew, we will shorten games if necessary to complete the event on time.
