5th Annual Little League Softball West Region Visitation Tournament

In an attempt to grow the Little League Softball program we are in the process of planning a softball visitation tournament. This tournament is a three-day tournament with teams staying at the Western Regional Complex in San Bernardino!


The visitation will start on Friday, May 8, 2020 and end on Sunday, May 10, 2020. The event will be considered an extended special games event, and will be a modified single elimination tournament with each team playing three games total. To fill the eight available team/league slots, we will be performing a lottery with eligible teams. There is an electronic entry form that is on this site, or can be accessed by CLICKING THIS LINK


If interested, you must enter your league and submit the entry form by FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 2020.


The lottery will be conducted at the regional offices on Monday, April 13, 2020, and leagues will be contacted via email to let them know they have been selected. There will be a $600 entrance fee per team. 


Teams entered by the league must be chartered in the Little League (Majors) Division of play. All games will be played at the Western Regional Complex in San Bernardino. All players must have a signed and completed medical release and all players, coaches and managers must have a completed and signed Form Release & Waiver. Copies of each will be sent via email to the selected leagues.


Final payment must be received by California District 49 by FRIDAY, MAY 1, 2020.

FAQ

Q: Why does this tournament fall on Mother's Day weekend?
A: The Western Region opens their facility for leagues to utilize throughout the season. We have to wait until the last baseball visitation is completed so they can skin the mound. The weekend after our visitation is the Challenger Jamboree, which is the last function at the facility until the regional tournaments. Due to this we are limited to this one open weekend to use the facility and host the tournament.


Q: Is there a host hotel that parents can book rooms at?
A: We are in the process of trying to get a block of rooms at a discounted rate for parents that wish to stay in San Bernardino. If we get more information we will inform teams and post it to our website.


Q: Are there laundry facilities at the complex?
A: We do not have washers and dryers available for the visitation. We recommend that this be discussed with parents who can either supply additional uniform items like socks and pants, or coordinate with a few parents to be responsible for washing the team uniforms.


Q: Is there RV parking at the complex?
A: Per our Little League Facility Usage agreement motorhomes, trailers, RVs or any other type of vehicle like those mentioned are not allowed on property.


Q: This is the first time my daughter has been away from home for an extended amount of time without her parents/guardians. What should happen if she doesn't wish to stay at the complex?
A: We understand that some of our players might experience home sickness while at the weekend visitation. This is normal with young children, especially if they haven't been away from home before. Players are not required to stay overnight in the barracks to participate. They are more than welcomed to stay at home or in a hotel with their parent/guardian. This would need to be address with the Tournament Director and the parents/guardians would have to make sure that they check the child in and out of the complex with Tournament Staff.


Q: We are combining two teams to form our visitation team. Can they wear their regular season uniform or can we order them a special jersey for the tournament?
A: If combining, players are more then welcomed to wear their regular season uniform. If a local league would like to purchase jerseys specifically for the tournament, that is fine too. ALL UNIFORMS MUST HAVE THE LITTLE LEAGUE PATCH AFFIXED TO IT AS SHOWN IN RULE 1.11(a)(2)! If combining teams, you must designate on the team roster what regular season team the players participate on. You may only combine up to two teams.
