Southern Sports "SUMMER SLAM""
We at Southern Sports want to say a BIG thank you to everyone for following the COVID-19 guidelines that were in place this weekend. The various city and county governments allowed us to play, but did place some strict guidelines on all parks.
Our site directors had a tough job but your courtesy and understanding is much appreciated!
Many do not realize the amount of work our park staff does during the course of a weekend. In a weekend when our parks were hit multiple times by severe weather. We have a sent a big thank to our field staff that was working at 5am Sunday morning in order to have fields ready for you on Sunday! We have great partnerships with them, and am thankful that you are able to benefit from their hard work!
Hope to see you soon!

Some of the parks that we play at, do not allow individual gates to be set-up. In lieu of the individual gate fee listed above, a team gate fee will be collected prior to the start of the tournament. If your team is at one of these parks, the Team Gate Fee is $150.00 for the weekend. Your team's park location will be determined once the schedule is released. Team gate fees can be paid online prior to the event, or prior to your first game.
FORMAT: All teams will be split into divisions that are representative of their playing level. This is typically A/AA and AA/AAA divisions. Depending on the number of teams entered, priority will be placed on making the event the most evenly competitive tournament. All teams will play either two pool games, a non elimination bracket game (win and play in gold bracket, lose and play in silver bracket) and in a single elimination bracket OR play in 3 pool play games, and then split into a single elimination championship bracket. The number of teams will dicate which choice is used.
TEAMS CHOOSE DIVISION (at registration) – each team will select either A/AA OR AA/AAA for their playing level as well as which division they select to register for...MAJOR teams are welcome in our events but MUST play in their own designated MAJOR division, or play one age group above their own.
AWARDS: RINGS will be awarded to all players on 1st and 2nd place teams in each division. One ring is available to the head coach as well.
TO GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT IN THIS EVENT: All teams must pay in full to secure their team’s spot in this event. If your team needs additional time to get a payment in to us, we will hold your spot for 5 business days. After 5 business days, your team’s spot will be in jeopardy of going to another team who pays their entry fee prior to your payment.
