Week Long Western National Softball ChampionshipJuly 25-31 Awarded to Placer Valley

For the third consecutive year the Greater Sacramento Softball Association (GSSA) and Placer Valley Tourism (PVT) are hosting a major youth event, this year it is the ASA/USA 14u Class A Girls Fastpitch Western National Championship.  This week long event will take place July 25-31 at Maidu Park in Roseville and Fosket Park in Lincoln.

"In somewhat of a surprise move the ASA National Office in Oklahoma City moved the 2016 ASA/USA 14u Fastpitch Western Nationals from Colorado to Roseville as this was supposed to be a quiet National Championship year for our organizing committee," explained Jeff Dubchansky, Commissioner of GSSA.

This move was largely due to the many previous successes the region has had in hosting ASA National Championship events and the strong support GSSA receives from PVT added Dubchansky.

The geographic regions for this championship is made up of three ASA territories and will bring teams from all over California as well as many out-of-state teams from Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Nevada   The teams competing must be registered as "A" teams and participate in their local ASA Association Championships in order to be eligible for this championship.

GSSA will kick off the event with an incredible Opening Ceremonies at Maidu Park on Monday, July 25 where all the teams will gather for a day of fun activities that include carnival games, parade of teams, costume contests, guest speakers and more.
