2017 Slowpitch Tourney Schedule

This summer’s tourney schedule is out and here’s a look at some of the highlights:

  1. We moved our AkS Superdraft to the first weekend of the season, May 6-7, a great way to find a team or get some swings in before the season kicks into gear.
  2. Since Memorial Day weekend, May 27-28, was now open, because of the SuperDraft move, AkS is putting together a a Coed tourney with details to come. It will be a fundraiser for the American Cancer Association’s Relay for Life.
  3. The 15th Annual AKS Classic is schedule for Aug. 26-27.
  4. Anchorage Sports will host 23 tourneys with their City Tourneys, Coed July 29-30 and Mens/Womens Aug. 12-13, getting the biggest changes as all are now three game elimination tourneys. They’ve also added 5/5/5 men’s and women’s tourneys on July 15. This is a new format and we’ll have an explanation page about it soon. They will also host State Tourneys in the following divisions; Coed, Men’s and Women’s Comp.
  5. Anchor Town Sports has 5 tourneys weekends on their schedule lead by their popular One-Pitch tourney on June 10-11. State tourneys hosted; Men’s D.
  6. Golden Heart has scheduled 4 weekends of tourneys, highlighted by their Midnight Sun One Pitch, a 24 hour marathon of softball that takes place on June 24-25 as well as their massively popular Golden Days tourney on July 7-9. Last year the Golden Days tourney was 55 teams so this year the tourney has grown to include Friday games for all teams so plan an extra day of travel. State tourneys hosted: Coed D and Womens D
  7. Kenai’s Firecracker, the Valdez Magic and the Seward tourneys will be the the weekend, July 1-2, just before the Fourth of July.
