25 Sep, 2018
September 2 Remember Bringing Over 1,000 Athletes to Placer Valley
The September 2 Remember Softball Showcase is swinging into Placer Valley from Sept. 28-30 with games taking place at Foskett Park in Lincoln and Whitney Park in Rocklin. USA Softball of Sacramento, Superior Showcase Softball and Placer Valley Tourism are teaming up for this highly competitive, three-day event that will showcase 1,000 youth softball players.
On Friday, Sept. 28 Superior Showcase Softball will kick-off the tournament with a college showcase camp at Foskett Park in Lincoln. The camp starts at 5:30 p.m. and coaches from North Dakota, Georgia, Iowa, Colorado, Kansas and California will be in attendance. The camp atmosphere is energetic with great engagement and instructions from the recruiters which serves as a perfect warm-up to the all-star games on Saturday and Sunday.
"This is where much of the magic happens," explained Dan Pearson, Director of Superior Showcase Softball, when asked about the Friday night camp. "College coaches will develop a watch list of players and teams that they want to see compete over the weekend and from this they will plan their day as to which games they will be attending- the camp really gives those participating a leg up on those who will only play over the weekend."
Three age divisions will be competing on Saturday, Sept. 29 and Sunday, Sept. 30 at this USA Softball sanctioned event: 14U A, 16U A and 18U A. "We have 73 teams registered with 11 teams on a waiting list," Pearson added. "Sixty percent of the teams are from out of town- what a great weekend for the local economy!"
The showcase games are scheduled to start at 8 a.m. with last games beginning at 8 p.m. on both days. There is no admission fee for spectators so come on down and see these top-notch athletes in action! Foskett Park is located at 1911 Finney Way in Lincoln and Whitney Park is located at 1801 Whitney Ranch Pkwy in Rocklin.
