Does anyone have experience with this event? Looking for pros and cons.

Was also looking at USFA in Panama City Beach… problem there is the 14A teams are pretty much all from Ohio (which is where we are from).
Thanks in advance.

Look at the USA 14UA National. It will be played in Evansville Indiana. 8 turf fields and 5 dirt fields if needed. Great area. Plenty of hotels and places to eat. Talk to your state USA a director. May be less teams, but the quality of teams will be very good.

It is fine... it rains every afternoon that time of the year and it is steaming hot when it is not. Can be a very good time if you are not 100% about the softball. The USFA event is about the same - they have been running that event forever..

Personally if you want to come to Florida, I would do the Spacecoast Nationals in Veira, FL a couple of weeks before - bigger variety of teams and lots of local Florida teams as well. Same weather - but it is turf fields and they can play 30 minutes after the rain stops.

Thanks. Looking for some sort of a destination event in mid-July… not sure Evansville fits, but I’ll take a look.

We did TCS Nationals in Myrtle Beach last year. Good competition there but looking for another spot. We can’t make the Space Coast date work, unfortunately. Would love to play on turf to help with rain. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
