The girls watched some exciting international ball and also competed against some great teams from all over Canada and the U.S. The girls have experienced some memories they will never forget. On behalf of the girls, their parents and our coaching staff, we would like to thank the entire organizing committee and volunteers for a fantastic and memorable event!
Coach, Chinguacousy Cougars 18U
My athletes also went back and watched a lot of the international games and just hung out at the park. I can’t think of a better place for the young athletes to hang out but at the Ball Park!! Thank you so much for providing our team with this experience! See you next year!!! Thank you Greg and volunteers!!
Coach, Fleetwood Force 96
Thank you for the opportunity to participate in your event; it was a tremendous experience for all our girls and their families. Your event was the finest and most well organized tournament we’ve had the privilege to attend in all of the Pacific Northwest. Again, thank you for the opportunity to participate in your outstanding tournament!
Coach, Calgary Rockies
I want to thank you for the efficiency and professionalism shown by all people making your event successful. From the parking lot people to the info desk to the accreditation booth, and then the experience for our daughter to see the international players close up was really amazing. Thank you again for your commitment in promoting the Canadian softball culture.
Coach
I just wanted to congratulate the organizing committee on a fantastic tournament once again. This is our second year in a row participating in the event and we hope to be back again next year. The competition is excellent. The facilities are fantastic. We had great umpiring all week and it is by far the best organized tournament we have ever participated in. Thank you.
Coach, Chinguacousy Cougars 18U
At the coaches meeting you stated that all teams would be treated the same and your word was held by all. My athletes were treated with the utmost respect and loved every minute of this tournament. They rubbed elbows with Team Canada, USA, Australia, etc. and those athletes took pictures, high fived and just made it a wonderful experience for my girls. Thank you!
Coach, Fleetwood Force 96
As always the event was fantastic. Congratulations to the Organizing Committee. I also want to advise how much the Showcase 16U means to the players. It was amazing how many parents (from all teams) said how excited their daughters were to participate as players in the event having spent so many years as spectators, volunteers, or bat girls. Thanks again!
Coach
I attended your tournament with my daughter and her team, and I just wanted to let you know that this was one of the best experiences she has had playing softball . What a great tournament! It was so exciting seeing the other countries play, as well as playing against them!! Wow!! This is about as close to the Olympics as we'll get! Thanks!!
Parent, Schutt Hurricanes
Our team and I would like to thank you for the week in Surrey, our players and fans alike enjoyed themselves. We found the teams and towns people very friendly and accommodating. We leave your town very proud of the effort from our players and good memories of the tournament.
Coach, Georgia Challengers
I just wanted to say thank you for the hospitality you and your staff showed to me and my assistant coach from Whitworth College in Spokane! Your staff was friendly and respectful. Also, your recruiting booklet was absolutely wonderful for us! This was my first time at your event and I believe it won't be the last.

My wife and I were able to attend the last few days of the event. We were very impressed by the way that the tournament was run and the courteousness of the staff and the volunteers. Our experience was a very positive one. We hope to be able to attend the event for many years to come. Thank you for all of your hard work.
