2020 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!
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. 

Our plan is to keep our events as competitive, affordable, and as cost effective, as we can.

Extreme entry fees ultimately trickle down to the families of these wonderful young ladies who play this great sport.
We promise that our events will to stay well under the $1000 threshold that other venues seem to think it's okay to charge.
We promise you more for less than the going rates!
And we don't manipulate numbers on college coaches attendance.

Seemingly, the new trend is to take the number of college coaches that sign in each day and add them all together to come up with some inflated number for marketing purposes. We're still old school!

If we have 50+ coaches recruiting one, two or three days, it's 50+. We don't add them all up to total 150+!

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, adding value to our events by offering instructional camps prior to some of our events. Again in 2019, we have partnered with
Diamond Directions Softball Camps and the Rise Up Performance Camps hosted by Lenoir Rhynes's head coach, Shena Hollar.




 

Tournament Information - Entry Forms and Payments

We have changed up a couple of dates for the 2020 season.
