[ESPN Wide World of Sports, Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, Florida] – 27 teams have filed their intent to participate in the highly regarded AAU Fastpitch Championship. Teams from Argentina, Canada, United States, and Venezuela are already polishing their cleats as they prepare for the trip. One in every three teams has already submitted its entry fee to secure its berth and make sure it isn’t left out. The Intent to Participate form does not guarantee a slot into the tournament.
40% of the teams that have filed their Intent are teams that did not participate last year. The 2014 booking curve is well ahead of 2013’s so you’ll want to book early to make sure you are not left out. In 2013, there were several teams waitlisted that were unable to be cleared. The deadline for the event is November 25 or when the tournament sells out, whichever comes first.
We look forward to seeing YOU in warm and sunny Florida! For any questions at all, just phone Debra Horn at 407.828.3459 or firstname.lastname@example.org (English) or AJ Juarez at 407.828.3832 or email@example.com (Spanish). We will be happy to assist you.
