June 4 and 5, 2016

The Rocky Mountain Showdown takes place in the foothills of the Rockies. Stazio Fields in is a beautiful place to spend the weekend, especially playing softball.  After getting feedback from multiple teams we have decided to make it a 2 day tournament this year.  This gives you a rare Friday night off during the season.  It also reduces hotel expenses for teams visiting and fuel costs for teams commuting.  This year the Rocky Mountain Showdown will be a Saturday and Sunday tournament with 6 Games Guaranteed for $450 - by far the best deal in the Rocky Mountain Region.  All games will be 1 hour 30 minutes in length so that all teams have a greater chance to play full games.  Throughout the tournament, we allow coaches to bat up to their entire lineup and freely substitute in the field.  Last year we had teams from Colorado, South Dakota, New Mexico and Missouri.

Click on the following links for more Tournament Information

  • Rocky Mountain Format - All teams will be guaranteed 6 games.  Each age group (with a minimum of 6 teams) will be divided into 2 pools.  Any cross pool games will count in your overall record.  THERE WILL BE NO BRACKET PLAY.  Teams will play 5 pool games and then they will be ranked in their pool based on how they did in pool play.  For the sixth game,  each team will play the corresponding finisher in the other pool from their age group (the first place team in Pool A will play the first place team in Pool B.  The second place team in Pool A will play the second place team in Pool B and so on).  This ensures that ever team knows how they finish in the tournament and allows us to guarantee 6 games in 2 days.  The Championship Game at each age group will be the first place team vs. the first place team game. 
  • Rocky Mountain Showdown Entry Form - Fastpitch Showdowns does not accept entry into any tournament without a completed entry form and at least a $100 deposit.  We do accept credit cards for payment.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
  • Rocky Mountain Showdown Rules - These are the rules from last year's tournament.  They will be substantively the same.  Final rules will be in the coach's packet which must picked up at registration at the start of the tournament.
  • ADMISSION WILL BE CHARGED AT STAZIO BALLFIELDS - $6 for a day pass or $10 for a two day pass.  Kids under 8 are free.  Fans over 65 are $3/day or $5 for the weekend.
  •  This year we have partnered with Traveling Teams to be our official hotel coordinator. We believe that their low price guarantee and personalized 24/7 support service offer the best service to our teams. Here is how the process will work.
1. First of all there is no additional cost to you.

2. You will be guaranteed the lowest rate available, either through the hotel or on the Internet.

3.  Their website should have 8-12 hotels listed with a range of prices and accommodations for each team from which to choose. They will also list the distance from Stazio Fields for each hotel. If you don't see anything you like, there is a listing on their website that will enable you to pick the hotel you would like to stay at, and they will try to make the reservations for you at that hotel - still negotiating a low rate. Then as teams pick and are confirmed for other hotels, those hotels will be added to the list. We would eventually like to get to approximately 20 or more hotels in Boulder, so that the teams will have a wide variety of choices and accommodations.
 
4. To request a block of rooms, please click on the link here. It is a very simple process that will only take you a few minutes.

5. They will have someone available 24 hours a day to handle any problems you may have, before or during your stay.

6. Because of the increasing number of teams we have entering the tournament from out of town, and the increasing requests for hotel recommendations, we think it will be a great service for the out of town teams -- especially the teams that are new to the tournament.  And again most importantly, you can stay wherever you would like at the guaranteed lowest price.
  • Teams Registered - Team lists will be updated on or about the 1st and 15th of the month beginning January 15th.
  • If, as in every previous year, the tournament sells out, all schedules and pools will be emailed to the coaches at least 15 days before the tournament.  If you believe you are registered for the tournament and you have not received the schedule by then, please let us know.
