Las Vegas Road Trip XVII

Posted 11/6/2023 @ 8:00 PM PST

SCIFL and NAFA are pleased to announce its 17th edition of the "Las Vegas Road Trip" Men's Fast Pitch Tournament which will be held on April 5-7, 2024 with the first round games starting Friday at 12:00 PM PT, and the Championship games scheduled for 3:00 PM PT on Sunday.

This event will accept teams who pay their entry fee prior to the due date. If for any reason the event cannot proceed, refunds will be issued so it is extremely important everyone pays online to make it easier and quicker to process refunds, if needed.


Teams flying in and out should make plans to be ready to play early on Friday and late on Sunday in the event the brackets are running late.

While this tournament is a NAFA sanctioned event, it is run by SCIFL; any questions regarding this tournament must go through the SCIFL Commissioner, Jesse Ortiz.


Teams will be separated in the following divisions with the maximum number of teams listed.

A (26-teams maximum)
A-Major (12-teams maximum)
AA (12-teams maximum)

The split was based on a maximum 50-team tournament and how teams signed up from previous events. If the divisions are not filled by the due date, they will be rearranged to reduce the number of teams in a division to add additional teams that have a high amount of teams on the waiting list to have a maximum of 50-teams.


The NAFA pitchers 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 any of the three divisions. Confirmation into the tournament will be based on the entry fee paid and roster received.

The classification list posted on the NAFA website as of January 31, 2024 will be used to classify pitchers. There will be no appeals for pitchers after that date for this tournament.

A 3-GAME GUARANTEE BRACKET will be used for all divisions with no "IF" games. With a minimum of eight (8) teams in a division, the winner will have their 2024 NAFA World Series entry fee paid for the division they participated in.


Teams interested in participating should contact Jesse Ortiz by email at scifastpitch (at) 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.


We are accepting a maximum of 50 teams which will be placed on a team interested list, as a first come first serve basis. Once the division is full, additional teams will be added to the waiting list and if they pay their entry fee (in full) they will have an opportunity to participate if a team drops out, does not pay by the due date, or if the number of teams are rearranged in each division because a team has not paid by the due date. If a team on the waiting list pays their entry fee and is not able to get in, their entry fee will be refunded.

*** This tournament has been filling up quickly within the past several years so I would suggest you contact Jesse as soon as possible if you want to be added to the interested team list to have the opportunity to pay first and avoid being on the waiting list. ***


The entry fee for the tournament is $740, which includes a $40 Annual NAFA Team Registration Fee. We will start collecting the entry fee beginning January 2, 2024 and once it's received you will be sent an email to confirm your entry.

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.

You can pay online by visiting our website and clicking on the "Pay Online" button on the left hand side column or by check, but paying online is the preferred method.

Checks can be made out to "SCIFL" and mailed to:

PO Box 2213
Norwalk, CA 90651


If the entry fee is not received by January 25, 2024 a team may lose their spot to a team on the waiting list who has paid their entry fee. This due date provides teams on the waiting list sufficient time to make appropriate travel arrangements if they are able to get in.
