The FirstSwing Foundation (WA state non-profit) is proud to announce the Heroes of Everett Baseball Tournaments for the summer of 2016. The youth tournaments will take place at Phil Johnson ball fields(turf infields) in Everett.
Although each tourney is different, the age groups will be 8-12U; April 1st being the cutoff date for age. Each participating team will be guaranteed four (4) games. Generally, there will be four to eight (8) teams in each age division, depending upon registration. Each team will play all the teams in their bracket in a round robin format with the top two teams two advancing to the Championship Bracket. Each tournament will be different, although modified Little League rules(except the All Star Warm up-regular LL rules) will apply and ALL players will bat. No big barrel bats allowed.
There is ample parking and a convenient concession stand as well as nearby coffee houses!
The intent of each tournament is to promote youth baseball while enjoying the spirit of competition and the game of baseball. FirstSwing has sponsored tournaments for over 25 years and prides itself in providing a safe and educational environment for kids to play baseball and learn many of “life’s little lessons”.
Cost: $500 per team as a donation to the FirstSwing Foundation; Microsoft matching is available for the donation.
