USA SOFTBALL OF GEORGIA OLYMPIC SERIES

USA Softball of Georgia is pleased to announce a new and exciting event that will provide teams with the opportunity to compete in a round-robin format for 14U, 16U, and 18U teams with a Nation qualifying berth awarded to the series winner in each age group. J.O. Commissioner, Ernie Yarbrough stated that “travel teams that have aspirations of playing in a National championship want to have the opportunity to play against good competition in an affordable event that offers an opportunity to play more than 70 or 80-minute games with no Friday play.” He added, “Our new event will provide both. Teams will have 1:40 games at a cost that is much more reasonable than many of the other options available. Our season schedule also isn’t in conflict with the important summer showcase dates.”
