Tournament Note

The 16th 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 9u/10u/11u/12u/14u/16u/18u and a Women's Division. Over 200 college coaches are annually invited to watch 16u/18u teams competing against other top teams from around the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes States.

All fields are Fastpitch softball fields with temporary or permanent fences for all age groups. Game format is 3 pool play games and then seeded into a single elimination bracket (9/10u/12u/14u/Women's). For 16u/18u divisions, 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. We also hand out bomb squad t-shirts for the first over the fence homerun for the weekend (while shirts last).

Rosters are only required for the college coaches booklets for 16u/18u teams. No rosters are needed for 10u/12u/14u/Women's. Otherwise, this is an open roster tournament besides for the rule that athletes can only play on one team for this tournament.

Entry fee is based on individual age groups:
9u & 10u - $555.00
11u & 12u - $555.00
14u - $775.00
16u - $825.00
18u - $825.00
