No, it is supposed to be a tournament for the high school teams only. It is not supposed to be "select" or "pick-up" teams. The whole point of the tournament was to give a place for the HS teams to play together and prepare for the upcoming season.


Some other HS Eligible Pre-Season tournaments that also use this format are: Round Rock, San Angelo, and Houston.

I have had multiple individuals direct message me about this tournament so I thought I should go ahead and post this here. I am NOT in charge of the tournament; simply a big fan of the experience these young ladies are able to gain and supportive of the way it is run!


Jim Campbell, a member of the Longview Girls Softball Association, coordinates the tournament each year. Jim and his crew do a tremendous job hosting this event. The umpires are typically very solid, and the facility crews have worked hard preparing the fields even in the sleet that has occurred two of the last four years.


The tournament is limited to the first 40 teams that sign up. I believe it was full as early as August this year because of how successful the tournament has been for teams in the past. This is the 8th annual event!


To my knowledge, the tournament is FULL, and there are a number of teams on a Waiting List in case anyone drops out. (Three teams did drop out last year within the last week before the tournament.) If you are interested in participating or at least finding out more information about this event, please contact the LGSA. http://www.longviewtxgirlsoftball.com/
