Tables will be set up adjacent to Field 1 and the football field for teams to check in. The entire team is not required to be present to check in. Only one member of the coaching staff needs to be present. The staff member will present a copy of the team’s insurance at check in and will verify the team’s roster. The staff member will also receive several items from us at check-in as well including:

 

--Team and coaches’ gifts

 

--Coaches wristbands (to be worn throughout the event- no exceptions)

 

--Discount coupons for use throughout the area

 

--Lineup cards specifically for use throughout the event (a copy of these will also need to be presented to the PGF staff after EVERY game with the final score)

 

Teams may check in as they like throughout the afternoon, but PLEASE make sure you have someone check your team in or your team will not be allowed to participate. Team Check In will remain open until the conclusion of Opening Ceremonies on the evening of Monday, July 16th.

Food trucks from the following vendors will be on-site for Opening Ceremonies:

Gift bag exchange—this is a tradition at Nationals and we certainly plan to honor it for those that want to participate. It especially is enjoyable for the younger teams. As such, we’ll suggest that all teams in the 10u and 12u divisions may feel free to exchange gift bags with their first pool game opponent prior to the game. In the 14u, 16u and 18u divisions, we’ll leave this process as an option only for the teams that choose to participate. Once the pool game schedule comes out, if your team (in 14u, 16u or 18u) desires to exchange gift bags with your first pool game opponent, we recommend that you shoot them a quick email and verify that they would like to do the same. If they do not, please let us know and we’ll keep a running list of teams that do not have a gift bag exchange partner and we’ll pair you up with a team that wants to participate.

 

Pin Trading— This is another Nationals’ tradition and we certainly encourage anyone that would like to participate to feel free to do so at both Opening Ceremonies and throughout the week.

 

 

Gate passes— each team will receive three coaches’ wristbands that must be worn throughout the event for entry as well. Anyone without a wristband will need to pay for admission either with a weekly pass wristband or a daily pass wristband (no exceptions) and must wear the wristband whenever at the park. Weekly pass wristbands will be available on Monday (throughout the evening near the Team Check In tables), Tuesday and Wednesday (at the entry tables near each group of fields throughout the park) and daily pass wristbands will be available each day of the event (also at the entry tables near each group of fields throughout the park). The prices for the weekly and daily pass bands are as follows:

 

Weekly Pass: $30

Daily Pass: $8 each day

 

Children 10 and under are free of charge

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT SEVERAL DISCOUNTS HAVE BEEN ARRANGED FROM AREA BUSINESSES AS WELL AND ALL REQUIRE THAT YOU ARE WEARING A WRISTBAND FROM THIS EVENT IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE DISCOUNTS. YOUR COACHES INFO PACKET WILL HAVE MORE DETAILS ON THE DISOCUNTS AND ESTABLISHMENTS THAT ARE OFFERING THEM.

 

Online score tracking and more—Tennessee PGF will be updating scores online throughout the event at our website (www.tennesseefastpitch.com) in the Championships section. We will also have specific updates available via Twitter (@TennesseePGF). Because of its immediate nature, Twitter will be our primary method of information dissemination for all weather-related matters. Please make sure that you and/or players on your team are following us on Twitter before the event begins to assure that you stay fully updated. We will also try to pass along updates via the website, but Twitter is much faster. So be sure to set this up prior to the event beginning.
