Tournaments

Carolina Cardinals Hosted Tournaments

Welcome to the tournaments page of the Carolina's leader in showcase and invitational tournaments.
The Carolina Cardinals organization has been hosting showcases, invitationals, and qualifiers since 1992, helping thousands of kids realize their dream of playing at the collegiate level.
We pride ourselves in doing the "right things", the "right way"!
Our record speaks for itself!
We don't have to sell you on "us". 
With a proven track record, over a 25 year span, we still offer the best run, most customer and recruiting friendly events, in the Carolina's.
We still believe it's about the kids and the greatest game on earth!
Unlike others, our events are not held to subsidize our personal incomes, build our retirement portfolios, or even earn a living.
We all have real jobs for that!
Our events are about giving back, helping kids and familes, by giving them a venue to showcase their talents and play this game we all love.
We continue to offer more "bang for the buck" ; with lower entry fees and multi-game tournaments for added value. 
The current trend in softball; folks trying to "cash in" at the expense of player's families, is very disturbing to us.
We try to "buck" that trend by doing things the old fashioned way. 
Quality events, lots of games, and all at reasonable prices.
And yes, we have college coaches at all of our events.

*We believe in partnerships!*
We continue to look at avenues to increase everyone's overall experience, by partnering with other travel organizations and colleges in the Carolina's, to "buck the trend", adding value to our events by offering instructional camps prior to some of our events. 
(More to come on that!)
Won't you come partner with us.
We would love to have you be a part of our special journey.
