Tournament Note

The 15th Annual Storm Summer Classic is one of the largest tournaments in the state of Michigan near the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. This tournament will be for 10u/12u/14u/16u/18u and a Women's Division. Over 100 college coaches are annually invited to watch 14u/16u/18u teams competing against other top teams from around the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes States.

Game format is 3 pool play games and then seeded into a single elimination bracket (10u/12u/Women's). For 14u/16u/18u a blind draw will be done for the first bracket game to allow College Coaches more confirmed game times for teams. All teams are guaranteed 4 games (weather permitting). This is a NON-SANCTIONED tournament. 2 certified and qualified umpires for each game and game balls are provided but teams are expected to retrieve foul balls and return to the umpires/field bucket.
