Northeast and Midwest Championships Cancelled; Northwest Championships On with Restrictions

June 1, 2020


Tournaments in Maryland and Florida have been added to the SSUSA slate

Two major TOC regional qualifiers scheduled for the month of July have been cancelled.

The Northeast Championships in Syracuse, N.Y., and the Midwest Championships in Rogers, Ark., will not be played.

Due to recent mandates from the New York Governor’s Office, the Northeast Championships will not be able to take place. SSUSA would like to especially thank Jeff Mickle from Visit Syracuse, and Ronald Baum from Hopkins Road Park for all of their hard work behind the scenes in trying to get this tournament approved.

However, teams that were scheduled to play in Syracuse will have the option to play in Westminster, MD, as National Director Tim McElroy has secured fields for the same dates, July 7-12.

Teams looking to participate in the Maryland Classic should contact Tim McElroy (email: PotomacSports1@gmail.com) as soon as possible.

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in the state of Arkansas, the fields in Rogers will not be open. SSUSA attempted to locate other facilities, but was unsuccessful.

The Jim Sherman Memorial/Northwest Championships in Salem, Ore., July 14 – 19, is still on as scheduled. However, Wallace Marine Park Softball Complex has implemented restrictions that SSUSA will follow.

The restrictions include a maximum of 250 people in the complex at any given time. Due to these restrictions, roster sizes will be capped at 14 players per team. Also, SSUSA recommends that teams limit the number of spectators they bring to remain under the 250-person threshold.

As a reminder, a mandate in the state of Oregon requiring masks in indoor public spaces took effect in seven counties on June 24. Other counties that wish to opt-in to that requirement may request to do so at any time.

Entry deadline is June 30. If your team would like to enter the tournament, please contact SSUSA as soon as possible. SSUSA will be limited in the number of teams we will be able to take, especially in the weekend session, July 17-19, in the Men’s 40 – 60, and Women’s divisions.

Timber Linn Park in Albany, OR, which is the past has been used for overflow games, will not be open.

Along with the Maryland Classic and the Northwest Championships, SSUSA looks forward to other upcoming qualifiers taking place, such as the Holiday Classic in Sturgis, Mich., this weekend, June 27-28; and the Aggieland Classic in College Station, Tex., July 7-12.

Also, a new tournament has been added in Florida, as Summer Slam will take place July 25-26 in Cape Coral (Northwest Sports Complex). Interested teams should contact Tim McElroy.
