WELCOME .. 2009 Inaugural 16U Champions Cup Participants...
It is my distinct pleasure to welcome you to the 1st Champions Cup (16U) tournament, an elite showcase fastpitch softball event being held from July 9 – 13, 2009 in Irvine, California. The Champions Cup (16U) is organized and operated by the Southern California International Softball Festival Champions Cup and all net proceeds from this tournament will be deposited to the same funds that will distribute awards directly to athletes that require financial assistance in the continuation of their college education.
The Champions Cup Junior Olympic Showcase will include top 16-Under teams from throughout the United States and the 49 team participants are posted. Many of these teams will participate as preparation for their National Championship tournaments in August. Tournament Sheet Information and deadlines for filing of forms can be found listed under J.O. Showcase 16 on our website www.championscup.org
The Champions Cup (16U) will be hosted by the City of Irvine; centrally located in Orange County, California, and one of the prime vacation destinations in the United States. The Harvard Athletic Park and possibly Col. Bill Barber Marine Corps Memorial Park will serve as the venues for this tournament. We also want to thank the Irvine Chamber of Commerce Visitor’s Bureau for their additional support this year.
The Irvine hotel community have collectively come up with some very attractive pricing to show their support of our event. The Hyatt Regency of Irvine, Crown Plaza (Irvine), and Embassy Suites (KOLCAES) are providing additional incentives to the Champions Cup to help launch this new endeavor. Please see listing under Hotels/Parks Hotels 16U in our website www.championscup.org.
The Champions Cup is also pleased that Worth Sports and Ringor have chosen to remain as founding sponsors of the Champions Cup. These companies manufacture and represent the finest equipment and apparel available in fastpitch softball and have been tremendous supporters of the sport for many years. The Champions Cup is proud to join with them in continuing a new tradition in fastpitch softball.
