15th ANNUAL TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS:
Polk County Is ‘The County of Choice’

POLK COUNTY, FL. • The Crown Jewel of Senior Softball enters its 15th year here in 2021, pitting the best of the best on the softball diamonds.

There simply is no other tournament in the sport that comes close to the SSUSA Original Tournament of Champions: Free rings for winners, special edition bats for MVPs, gift bags for every manager, a gala sit-down banquet for 1,500 players and their families – and that does not even include the hitting clinics, skills contests and the All-Star Game!

This year’s tournament will be held January 20 - 24 and only winners of qualifying tournament are invited. In short, it’s the tournament for champions, only. Second-place teams stay home. This is the original Tournament of Champions and it’s only for those teams that have been previously crowned king of the hill at a Senior Softball USA sanctioned tournament during the 2020 season.

“The TOC here offers the most elite event in the sport to celebrate winners of the top tournaments in the country,” said Terry Hennessy, chief executive officer of SSUSA. “No one offers a tournament that even comes close.”

“It’s a battle of tournament champions taking on tournament champions to determine which team is truly the top team of the year,” he said. “There’s really nothing like it and that’s why teams go all out to come back each year.”

The Tournament of Champions handsomely rewards its winners who received free championship rings and each player earns a TOC certificate. In addition, the most valuable players in each division win a bat.

Manager Meeting

Until is it safe to gather in groups of more than 10, SSUSA will forgo all manager meetings.  All information pertaining to a specific tournament will be sent to managers via email before the tournament begins. A copy of the Manager Notes will be available in paper copy.

Managers will receive their updated rosters with the Manager Instructions.  It is up to the manager to let the Director know if there are any changes at the field before the team begins playing.

We will be sending managers new Team Waiver Forms that each player will need to sign before playing, saying they understand softball is a game of risk and that there is always a risk in group activities of contracting viruses or other illnesses.
