Southern Sports "SPRING INVITATIONAL" & "SINGLE "A" SERIES"
In the past 90 minutes, all of our parks have gotten hit with another round of severe storms. We've been at the parks this afternoon and evening and this last set of storms has pushed the fields past the point of possibly getting them ready for play tomorrow. Unfortunately, the rest of the tournament has been canceled.4/24/2021 9:04 PM
We will be disabling the webpage and phone app page for this weekend in order to revise tomorrow's schedule. A lot of rain has fallen, and the fields are underwater with more rain forecasted tonight. We are making every attempt on the fields, and will continue to update you on the status of tomorrow.
Tomorrow's schedule will be the remaining pool play games with #1 vs #2 games Sunday night. Some divisions will also have #3 vs #4 games based on the number of teams in each division, and field space limits.
Thanks for your patience and we will post the "new" scheduling later today.
As of 6:15am, all Saturday games have been canceled due to the weather system that is moving through our area.
We will release the Sunday format/schedule by 6pm today.
Thanks for your patience.

TEAM GATE FEE
We have some parks that will not allow individual gate fees to be collected, and we are forced to collect a team gate fee from each team. All teams will be notified about this prior to the beginning of the event.
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 two pool games, and then split into a Sunday single elimination championship bracket. With enough teams entered, division brackets can be separated further into gold, silver, and bronze Sunday brackets.
TEAMS CHOOSE DIVISION (at registration)
Each team will select their team's classification (Single A, AA, or AAA), and what division (Single A, A/AA OR AA/AAA) they are requesting to compete in for the event. MAJOR teams are welcome in our events but MUST play in their own designated MAJOR division, or play one age group above their own.
SINGLE "A" TEAMS
We have researched fall 2020 results, and will monitor ongoing spring 2021 results, for teams that wish to be considered for our Single "A" divisions. Single "A" divisions will be offered throughout the spring.
RINGS for 1st and 2nd place teams in each division.
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.
