      This inaugural event that USFA is introducing is specifically for the 8u Age Division with a 6GG Championship Round Robin format that will be a “5X Point National Event”. This newly created 8u US Championship will be set for only 8u teams with different coach pitch divisions within the age group. Pearland, TX is going to be the host market for this event with 2 great complexes leveraging 10 fields that will specifically be set up for 8u play with fences set at 175ft for example. The Pearland area near Houston, TX is a hot bed for softball, and is a great location that is in close proximity to Houston Hobby Airport, and very close to some great hotels. There is no special qualification to play in this event, unless you are playing in the Rec/League Division which will require league verification. We are expecting to have 8u teams from different classes from around the country attend this event to establish who are the teams to beat as we finish the Fall. See the Tournament information below
       
      Format:
      6 Round Robin Games that will count in standings with the top 6 teams in each Division advancing to a Championship Single Elimination Bracket to determine the Champions for each Division. Each game will be tracked in the USFA Mobile App under the standings section of the tournament. The top 2 teams will get a bye, and the #3 seed will play #6, and the #4 will compete versus the #5 seed. Benefit to this format is that teams traveling in come in knowing that they get to play at least 6 different teams at minimum. Games will start Saturday morning, no Friday Night Games

      • Wins will count as 3 Points
