HUNTERSVILLE, North Carolina -- The long-awaited debut of Perfect Game Softball becomes a reality this weekend, when 80 teams will gather in Huntersville, N.C. for the 2021 PG Softball Umpire Training Tournament. Four age groups – 10U, 12U, 14U, and High School – will participate in the tournament. Each team will play two games, with modified time limits, as the initial 2021 PG Fast Pitch Softball tournament will help clubs and organizations shake the winter rust off in preparation for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.

The first PG tournament of the year will be held at North Meck Park, which is scheduled to host numerous PG events throughout the year and is a beautiful facility that has both softball and baseball fields that are in pristine shape and ready for the quality action that all Perfect Game competition brings.

Numerous teams from around the region, with longstanding organizational pride and a tradition of excellence, are scheduled to appear in the exhibition contests on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 27 and 28, at NMP. Some of the quality organizations slated to appear over the course of the two day event include Bandits NC, Carolina Elite, Lady Blues, Firecrackers NC, Lady Dukes, Carolina Cardinals, and Lady Lightening. There are also a number of up-and-coming organizations and teams who will undoubtedly leave their early mark on the Coastal Region softball world in this warm-up tournament. All participating clubs will use the early competition in Huntersville to ramp up their players and teams for an exciting spring and summer of PG Softball.

As usual, the quality associated with Perfect Game events will be ever-present. Jeff Hall, the Coastal Region Director, will have his outstanding staff present to ensure that all teams, coaches, parents, and fans truly enjoy their first experience with PG Softball. DiamondKast – the official, in-game scoring system of Perfect Game, will be demonstrated and explained to all. The 2021 PG Softball Tournament schedule will also be made available to organizations and teams. PG is offering a wide variety of tournament opportunities throughout the Coastal Region this year, including a couple of chances for clubs to play “at the beach”. All tournament information is currently viewable on the PG website under the PG Softball tab.

This tournament will also see the PG Softball scouting staff present. Many teams and players will be highlighted at the conclusion of this event and those reports will be viewable the week after the tournament on the PG website.

The 2021 competitive tournament season promises to be a great experience for many organizations, teams, players, families, and fans. Perfect Game will help lead the way.
