SCIFL

 

THE ROAD TRIP IS ON!!!

The ninth edition of the “Las Vegas Road Trip” men’s fast pitch tournament dates has been confirmed. The event will be held April 8-10, 2016. As like last year, first round games will start on Friday at noon and the Championship games will be scheduled for 3:00 PM on Sunday, with "IF" games immediately following if necessary. Teams flying in and out should make plans to be ready to play early on Friday and late times on Sunday in the event the brackets are running late. Last year we had 33 teams competing and games started at noon on Friday and made things very smooth for players throughout the weekend.
 
While this tournament is a NAFA sanctioned event, it is run by the SCIFL and any questions regarding this tournament must go through the SCIFL Tournament Director Jesse Ortiz.
 
Teams will be separated in the following divisions:

A
A-Major (depending on amount of teams)
AA/AA-Major (depending on the amount of teams)
 
The split in the higher classifications will be based on the amount of teams that enter. The NAFA pitcher’s list will be used to monitor pitchers in the tournament as well as the team’s current classification. No open class pitchers are allowed to pitch in this tournament. Confirmation into the tournament will be based on the entry fee and roster being received. The classification list posted on the NAFA web site on January 31, 2016 will be the list that is used to classify pitchers. There will be no appeals for pitchers after that date for this tournament.
 
The entry fee for the tournament is $420 and the NAFA 3-game guarantee bracket will be used for all divisions. It is open to all fast pitch teams and  it is your responsibility to pay your State Director the NAFA Team Registration fee. With a minimum of eight (8) teams in a division, the winner will have their 2016 NAFA World Series entry fee paid for the division they played in. Also, to help keep tournament costs down, if your team books at least five (5) rooms and stays at our host hotel on Friday and Saturday nights you will receive $25 back on your entry fee.  
 
Teams interested in participating should contact Jesse Ortiz by email, as soon as possible, at scifastpitch@gmail.com or by cell at 661-510-8928 and inform him if your team can play all three days. Teams that can play all three days will be placed on the priority list, teams that say they can only play on Saturday and Sunday will be placed on the secondary list. No one will be given a "selected" game time as everyone is traveling to the event.
 
Entry fees will start to be collected on January 2, 2016 and once it’s received you will be sent an email to confirm your entry. Once the tournament is full, teams providing their entry fee will be placed on a waiting list and entered if any teams drop out. All teams will need to submit their entry fee along with their team’s roster listing all their players and identifying their pitchers to ensure teams are placed in their proper classification.
 
Checks can be made out to "SCIFL" and mailed to:
 
SCIFL
P.O. Box 6572
Burbank, CA 91510
 
For the 9th year the host hotel will once again be Arizona Charlie’s Boulder. The rate will be $50 per night for Friday and Saturday and $30 for Thursday and Sunday nights if you book directly with the hotel using their 800 number. In order to receive this rate you must book by midnight of cut-off date March 24, 2016 using the 800 number.
 
Arizona Charlie’s Boulder offers a casino, buffet and sit down dining along with live music in the casino bar/lounge. Please help the tournament by booking with Arizona Charlie’s by using their 800 number to receive the special rate. The number is 800-362-4040 and the reference code is C-SCIFL or mention So Cal Independent Fast Pitch League. Rooms booked any other way (Priceline, Expedia, etc…) cannot be confirmed through the hotel and are not used toward our count and you will not receive the team credit if you book five rooms or more. If you need to book more than three (3) rooms on the same credit card, please contact Kathy Brennan at 702-951-5942 in the group sales department and she will be more than happy to assist you. Also, if the 800 say’s they do not have the SCIFL listing, please call Kathy to book your room. If she is not there, leave a message and she will get back to you.
 
Information regarding the event, game results and player statistics will be posted on www.scifastpitch.com . This year's tournament once again will be played at Sunset Park and Warm Springs Park; both are located with 1/4-mile of each other and are located by the Las Vegas International Airport. Game times will be available once the tournament is filled or one week after March 12, 2016 when the schedule will start to be worked on.

MASTERS LEAGUE WEEK 6 - SANTA FE SPRINGS

The schedule for the final Master weekend is now available.  Games start at 9:00AM at Little Lake Park.  As a reminder, if you still have players that have not registered their bats please make sure they do so it can be used.

Also, the city has placed restrictions on the snack bar which is causing issues for those teams that run it so there will not be a snack bar this tournament. Please make arrangements for your own food and drinks.  

SCHEDULE

BAT TESTING

Remember that the tamper proof decal stickers will be utilized at this event so each bat will need to be tested prior to use. Bats that do not have the tamper proof decal sticker will not be allowed in the game. I recommend to players that they do not try to take the tamper proof decal sticker off once they receive one because any bat that has a tamper proof decal sticker and looks like it’s been tampered with will be asked to re-test the bat which could delay the game.

In order to start the games on time please arrive at least 45 minutes prior to game time so we can test your bat, inventory it, and provide passing bats with a tamper proof decal sticker for umpires to check on the field.

 

IMPORTANT FREEWAY INFORMATION

There is major freeway work on both sides of the 5. The Northbound Pioneer exit is still closed and will not be open before this weekend. If you are coming from the South (Orange County, San Diego, etc) exit at Norwalk and make a right off the freeway.  Go to Lakeland and make a left. The park will be on your right after a couple of blocks.

If you are coming from the North (LA, Palmdale, Burbank, etc), the Imperial Highway exit is open.  It has not been traveled on to verify but it appears that when you exit you will make a right onto Imperial Highway and then another right on Pioneer Blvd.  Go to Lakeland and make a right. 

If you do not trust the 5 South directions above, take the 5 South to the 605 South/Florence exit and exit on Florence (the off ramp is on the transition road).  Make a left and and follow the bend in the road (you will go under the 605 and over the 5 freeway).  Take Florence to Pioneer Blvd and make a right.  The park will be on your left.
