To our Coaches, Players, Families & Colleagues,
1st to 3rd Softball Events is thinking about our softball community during these uncertain & challenging times. We want to thank all of the Softball Community for supporting us over the years and being patient as we navigate our way through the challenges associated with the Corona Virus! We understand that not being on the field or at the ballparks on the weekend is hard but equally value the directive for our families and athletes to “shelter in place”.
We miss you and are as eager as you to get back on the playing field asap but until then know that we are working diligently to reschedule our events for you and your families to look forward to once these uncertain times are over. After 10 years in the Softball Event business 1st to 3rd Softball Events has faced challenging times before and always emerged with more insight and determination to give you predictable, reliable & memorable softball weekend experiences.
With the cancellation of High School & College softball seasons we have opened up registration in the 18U, 16U divisions for the following May Events:
May 2/3 “The Whole Enchilada Bash for Cash”
May 9/10 “Mothers Day Classic”
May 16/17 “Headed to Huntington”
We will be allowing college players (must be age eligible) to participate in our Summer events (excluding National Qualifiers & National Championships).
As many of you know the PGF National Office decided March 23, 2020 to extend our temporary suspension of Tournament activities until no earlier than Thursday April 30, 2020. 1st to 3rd Softball Events values and respects this directive and will plan accordingly. Effective immediately our Event schedule through mid – April is cancelled. We will remain cautiously optimistic that the “Corona Virus climate” will change and will make a decision on Nor Cal’s Finest Best of the West (April 18/19, 2020) on April 3rd, 2020.
We are all in this together. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support our customers and communities as needed. We are committed to communicating with you on a consistent basis, providing you with additional information & best practises to work through the Corona Virus Pandemic. We will be thinking of our PGF community during this time.
So to spread some positivity we wanted to share this video in honor of our players, coaches, and staff!! Stay safe everyone.. #TheBestPlayHere
