USFA Sunday Sep 27th Tournment

I have attached the tournament bracket for this Sunday's Tournament. Our pool play is 8am and 1230. The time limit is 70 min finish the inning. For those who don't know there has been a change with USFA Indiana. Below is the email I received this week.

Coaches,

After careful consideration, and the addition of new information on 9/20/2020, I have decided to move my tournaments from the United States Fastpitch Association to Future Stars of Sports. The frustration our teams and directors have faced since 8/1/2020, due to lack of communication and honesty regarding the Sanctioning and Registration processes online by the USFA National Office, has been shocking. I will not operate under an organization displaying such dishonesty and disrespect toward myself, my staff, and to the youth softball teams in the great state of Indiana. We will continue to host tournaments at the same level you have come to expect. Points, rank, records etc...will remain the same. Future Stars of Sports hosts a World Series in Tennessee (see info below). The only real change for teams is the website and contact info you have for myself and staff shirley@futurestarsofsports.com and holly@futurestarsofsports.com.

Questions you may have:

1. Click here to SANCTION. Fee is $45 for the 2020-2021 Season
2. If you sanctioned with USFA between 8/1/2020 and 9/21/2020 please contact me to roll over your sanction free of charge.
