Earlier this fall PWSA announced the new tournament in which teams will qualify for berths to Nationals. We now have confirmation that the Windsor Wildcat organization will host the tournament July 12 to 15 for all age divisions (U14, U16, U19 and Open). More info will be available in the coming weeks, but for now teams interested in attending can get the inside track on securing hotel rooms using the information we have below.
At the fall AGM for Grand Valley Ladies Association, the league announced that opening weekend for all divisions U10 to U19 will be held the weekend of May 11, 2018. Host centres for the 5+ divisions have not been confirmed as of yet, but the weekend has which will allow teams in the GVLSA to plan their tournament schedules accordingly.
Closing weekends for the various divisions will be left to the coaches and conveners of each age division. The league advised that they hope to announce the chosen weekends for league championships before the Christmas holiday.
Mohawk College has announced that they will run a tournament the opening weekend in May 2018. This helps fill the void with the Brantford Bobcats choosing to move to the Victoria Day long weekend. The Mohawk College Fastpitch Classic will take place May 4 - 6, and will offer teams a 5-game guarantee.
U12 to U19 divisions are being offered, and registration for the tournament is open.
The Brantford Bobcats organization made an announcement recently in which they state they have moved their host tournament weekend from the first weekend in May, to the Victoria Day Long Weekend. The tournament will now run Saturday to Monday. The event will still over teams a 5-game guarantee, and will operate U12 to U19 divisions, with Tiers if the numbers warrant.
The move comes on the heels of the Bobcats having their 2017 tournament wiped entirely due to bad weather this past season. Moving to the Victoria Day long weekend, means a few extra weeks for the weather to improve, but also typically means better seasonal temperatures which helps make those night games not so chilly in early May!
The Tournament will now be named the Queen of the Diamonds Classic. For the older divisions, there will be a showcase element to the tournament in which the hosts will be encouraging college and university coaches to attend to see the talent on the field.
