From the SCIFL:
This year the Las Vegas Road Trip X will have 42 teams in total; the most ever participating in the event. Teams from Canada, Mexico, and the United States are all represented in this tournament.
All teams have paid their entry fee allowing the schedule to be set earlier than the years before. Here is the schedule for all the divisions.
The tournament will be using NAFA rules along with special rules. Teams will have the option to bat up to 10 players using the Extra Hitter (EH), a Designated Runner (DR), and a Courtesy Runner (CR) may be used for the pitcher or catcher ONLY but it must be the last recorded out.
All divisions will use the 3-game guarantee NAFA bracket. The championship games are scheduled for 3:00 PM on Sunday with “IF” games immediately after if necessary. Please keep in mind that with any tournament(s) the scheduled times and games may be push back a bit during the course of the day so please plan flights accordingly.
If your normal routine is to have a conference with all your players before the first pitch, please do that before the coin flip or better yet, while the game before you is in play so we can keep games running as close to on-time as possible. The umpires will be instructed to get you moving and start the game without wasting anytime. Also, keep your teams moving in and out of the dugouts as quickly as possible. The courtesy runner for the catcher is there for a reason, to get their gear on while the inning is in play and not after the last out.
The USA Softball Bat Testing & Certification Program along with compression testing will be utilized in this tournament – NAFA 2017 tamper proof decal stickers will be provided for passing bats.
Bat testing will be conducted at Sunset Park fields 11, 12, 13, 14 and in order for the bat to receive a tamper proof decal sticker it must meet the USA Softball Bat Testing & Certification Program by having 1) the ASA certification mark, 2) is not on the Non-Approved Bat List, and 3) passes compression.
Once the bat passes its testing it will be given an NAFA 2017 tamper proof decal sticker. Bats without a NAFA 2017 tamper proof decal sticker will not be allowed in the game. Players should not try to take the tamper proof decal sticker off because any bat with a sticker that looks like it’s been tampered with will not be allowed in play.
