Frequently Asked Questions

Our policy states that all teams outside of 75 miles are required to stay with our partnering hotels. This list can be found on the Youth World Series website under the hotels tab in the top right corner. As a Stay-To-Play event provider all teams AND individuals will complete the hotel lodging process through the event website, not directly with the hotel.

This policy requires teams to have at least 26 room nights through our hotels, if this cannot be met, then an alternate lodging fee will be added to the registration. Alternative lodging fees range from $900-$1300 depending on location and allows teams to stay wherever they want if paid.

Your team is guaranteed to play at least 5 games, weather permitting, but depending on your team’s success, you can play several more!

The official tournament schedule will be sent out, and put on our website 1 week before the tournament.- An idea of what to expect is:

Day 1: Pool Play games will start at 8am and those with the early games will have a coaches meeting times will be sent by the Event Director. They usually happen before your first game.

Day 2: Pool play games will continue until completed. We could have our skills competitions on this day as well depending on field availability.

Day 3: Bracket play will start at the directed time. If skills competitions are not completed on day 2 then they will take place on Day 3.

Day 4: Bracket play will end on day 4.

Day 5: (if scheduled): This is a rain day. Not all locations have this day built in so check your dates, but if weather causes us to push games back, instead of playing all night we will push games back to this day to allow for more games to be played during the week.

If we have a rain or lightning delay you will be notified as soon as we have an answer from the park and the new schedule in place so please be patient. If we see that it’s possible to continue to play that day we will be prepared to play on that 5th day.

If for some reason you have to cancel your registration with us, the following things need to take place:

  1. Softball World Series ([email protected]) needs to be notified immediately

If the event insurance is not purchased then teams will receive a credit to future Athletx events that is good for 24 months.
