2015 Tournament Information

College coaches wishing to RSVP to the event, please go to our registration page.

We cordially invite you to join us for the Sixth Annual Demarini Invitational. For the third year we have joined forces with Premier Girls Fastpitch (PGF), the top name in Girls fastpitch, to make our event a PGF sponsored event. This year's tournament boasts its typically strong 44 team field, making the Demarini Invitational a "must" destination for both top club teams and college coaches alike.
  1. Tournament Location, Schedule and Participating Teams
    The tournament will be held once again at "recruiting friendly" Ackerman Park in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The schedule for the tournament week is as follows:

    • Wednesday, July 8 - OnDeck Softball recruiting event during the day; in the evening, beginning of pool play
    • Thursday, July 9 - pool play begins
    • Friday, July 10 - pool play continues
    • Saturday, July 11 - pool play concludes, single elimination play begins
    • Sunday, July 12 - elimination play concludes

    The 44 team field (listed below) was chosen with the idea of offering national level competition coupled with a strong contingent of 16U teams to ensure the "recruitability" associated with younger teams. In all, the 44 team field includes 21 teams classified as 16U (or younger) and they will be asked to mix it up in pool and bracket play with the 23 teams classified as 18U. You will get to see all the players you might be interested in competing against each other without the protection of age group levels.
  2. OnDeck Softball July 8 Event
    We are extremely excited about welcoming back Derek and Joann Allister of OnDeck Softball who will again be running one of their signature showcase recruiting events on the first day of our schedule, Wednesday July 8. OnDeck Softball and the Allisters have long been known for quality and integrity in the recruiting process and we are proud to have them kick-off our long weekend of competition with one of their showcase camps for the third consecutive year. You may visit the OnDeck wesbsite. The anticipated schedule for this event will be from 8:00 am until 3:30 pm on Wednesday July 8.

We are very committed towards making this Demarini Invitational the best ever. Please come join us for a great week of competitive national level fastpitch softball.
