EVENT DETAILS

Team Check In and Opening Ceremonies will be held on Monday, July 17 at Drake’s Creek Park, which is located at 120 East Main Street, Hendersonville, TN 37075. The main entrance to the park is located off of Main Street and there is also a side entrance off of Indian Lake Blvd (see attached map for further detail). We will begin Team Check In at noon (CDT) on Monday the 17th. Tables will be set up adjacent to Field 1 and the football field for teams to check in.

Opening Ceremonies will begin at 5p (CDT) and will also be held in the same area of Drake’s Creek Park. We will have food trucks on site along with several other vendors for t-shirts, apparel, bows, team photos and more throughout the Opening Ceremonies, which will have the following itinerary:

 

5:00-7:00p Social hours for teams to spend with one another, pin trading and fellowship for all

 

7:15-8:00p Free concert for all featuring Nashville recording artist and songwriter Jessica Campbell

 

8:15- 8:30p Fireworks Display for all

 

Some other additional notes for consideration as well:

 

Gift bag exchange—this is a tradition at Nationals and we certainly plan to honor it for those that want to participate. It especially is enjoyable for the younger teams. As such, we’ll suggest that all teams in the 10u and 12u divisions may feel free to exchange gift bags with their first pool game opponent prior to the game. In the 14u, 16u and 18u divisions, we’ll leave this process as an option only for the teams that choose to participate. Once the pool game schedule comes out, if your team (in 14u, 16u or 18u) desires to exchange gift bags with your first pool game opponent, we recommend that you shoot them a quick email and verify that they would like to do the same. If they do not, please let us know and we’ll keep a running list of teams that do not have a gift bag exchange partner and we’ll pair you up with a team that wants to participate.

 

Pin Trading— This is another Nationals’ tradition and we certainly encourage anyone that would like to participate to feel free to do so at both Opening Ceremonies and throughout the week.

 

Pool games and schedule—currently, our plan is to email the pool game schedule to all teams around July 12th or July 13th. Pool play games for all teams will begin on Tuesday July 18th. Bracket play for all teams in this two pool, double elimination format Championships will begin on Thursday July 20th. Pool play results will seed all teams into bracket play.

 

Gate passes—all players will receive wristbands to wear throughout the event which will cover their admission. Likewise each team will receive three coaches’ wristbands that must be worn throughout the event for entry as well. Anyone without a wristband will need to pay for admission either with a weekly pass wristband or a daily pass wristband (no exceptions) and must wear the wristband whenever at the park. Weekly pass wristbands will be available on Monday (throughout the day near the Team Check In tables), Tuesday and Wednesday (at the entry tables near each group of fields throughout the park) and daily pass wristbands will be available each day of the event (also at the entry tables near each group of fields throughout the park). The prices for the weekly and daily pass bands are as follows:

 

Weekly Pass: $25

Daily Pass: $8 each day

 

Children 10 and under are free of charge

 

Online score tracking and more—Tennessee PGF will be updating scores online throughout the event at our website (www.tennesseefastpitch.com) in the Futures Championships section. We will also have specific updates available via Twitter (@TennesseePGF). Because of its immediate nature, Twitter will be our primary method of information dissemination for all weather-related matters. Please make sure that you and/or players on your team are following us on Twitter before the event begins to assure that you stay fully updated. We will also try to pass along updates via the website, but Twitter is much faster. So be sure to set this up prior to the event beginning.
