ASA Senior Tournament at Manassas

MANASSAS, VIRGINIA - Local ASA officials will be including senior divisions in their remaining tournaments for the 2008 season and beyond. The concept is an alternative to the current "regional qualifying tournaments" now being offered by others. "Based on numerous recent experiences, several senior teams have expressed a desire to have a lower cost, weekend tournament (one or two days) and we believe that we can provide that," offered RB Thomas, Jr. "We are very flexible in the format, our response from teams indicate a need for some one-day tournaments on the weekend, although most teams did not have a strong opinion on one or two day events as long as it was on the weekend only. We thought we would begin with an open roster concept since we will obviously not have enough teams to create 20 divisions of play based on the ISSA Ratings. Teams will email their list of players with age and current team info. We will place them in divisions accordingly with the aim of creating some parity. Obviously, the more teams that we get, the better job we can do in addressing age and skill levels. We do not want to exclude any players but we do not want teams loading up with Major players either. The goal for managers should be to try to form a team at a good 50AAA competitive level. No expensive special ID card required, a drivers license will do. A one-day three-game minimum tournament will be $150 and a two-day five-game minimum tournament will be $250. We can provide the fields, umpires and awards for seniors to have a nice experience in a good softball atmosphere." The following are the senior tournament dates: June 7 & 8 2nd Annual Capital Classic July 5 & 6 Fourth of July Firecracker August 2 & 3 35th Battle of Manassas August 23 & 24 Northern Virginia Championships Anyone wishing to enter a team in these tournaments or would like more information or provide additional feedback can contact Thomas at 703-368-1188 or email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
