WELCOME .. 2009 Champions Cup Participants...
Once again welcome to the 6TH ANNUAL Champions Cup, which is an elite, showcase fastpitch softball event being held from July 15 – 19, 2009 in Irvine, California. The Champions Cup is organized and operated by the Southern California International Softball Festival Champions Cup and all net proceeds from this tournament will be deposited to a fund 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 Gold and 18-Under teams from throughout the United States and Canada. Teams entered include the 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 ASA-USA Junior Olympic National Champions in both the 18U Gold and 18A divisions. Many of these teams will participate as preparation for their National Championship tournaments in August.
The teams are posted and Tournament Sheet Forms can be downloaded from J.O. Showcase 18 in our website www.championscup.org
The pdf files can be used to type and print out but will not allow you to save if you are not a Apple user or you do not have Acrobat Pro 9. Word and excel files are available to be downloaded if you prefer. Please print the roster forms and mail an original to the Champions Cup.
The Champions Cup 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 Col. Bill Barber Marine Corps Memorial Park and Harvard Athletic Park will again serve as the primary venues for all tournament activity. We also want to thank the Irvine Chamber of Commerce Visitor’s Bureau for their help in providing entertainment opportunities off of the softball field.
The Hyatt Regency of Irvine has agreed to return as one or our host hotels for the Managers Dinner on Tuesday, July 14, 2009. The Crown Plaza (Irvine) provided extra help and support in making the Champions Cup the success that it was. The Irvine Embassy Suites (KOLCAES) is also providing support and lodging for this year’s Cup in addition to all the wonderful hotels listed in your welcome package and on 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.
