2021 MEMORIAL DAY TOURNAMENT UPDATE

PARKESBURG, PA​ | March 15, 2021
   Our 5th annual, 2021 Memorial Day tournament will be held in several communities this year. Our 9 and 10u groups will play at Avon Grove's main Little League complex, 11's at SEPTBA's Minch Park complex as well as Octorara Little League, and our 12's will be in action at KAU Little League's Sinton Field. This year we've adopted the theme of "It Takes a Village" from an old African proverb that reminds us that we all have a part in developing our youth. The courage our players have shown over the past year and their dedication to training and academics have proven that our teachers, coaches, and parents have a large role to play in our player's development. Thank you! 

   As in years past, two games will be played on Saturday for re-seeding purposes. Sunday is elimination day where a North and South Division Champion will be crowned in each age division. To finish off Sunday's action, the North Division Champion will play the South Division Champion for the overall League title in each age division. 

   Monday, from 9am-12pm, all Age Divisions are invited to attend a FREE skills competition at SEPTBA's Historic PICO Filed at Minch Park. All ages are welcome to compete in 2 of three events unless time allows for more. The events are Pitching Accuracy, Infield fielding / throwing contest, Home Run Derby, and Base Running.  At 1pm, the 9u and 11u All Star Games will begin, followed by the 10u and 12u games at 3:30pm. Contest prizes and All Star recognition will begin promptly at 12:45pm. 

   Visit SEPTBA's PICO Field "Bullpen Gift Shoppe" or grab a snack at Iron Men Concessions. Limited quantities of extra Tournament T-s will be available on site. To ensure you get yours, pre-order now until May 1st by visiting www.septba.com/shoppe.

SEPTBA announces 2021 Tournament Series

PARKESBURG, PA​ | October 30, 2020
     After a slow start to our tournament series this past summer and fall, no help from the Covid emergency and being new to the world of outside tournaments, the SEPTBA was able to raise enough funds, along with a local friend and her fundraiser, to purchase dugouts for the lower field for the first time in Minch park history. Thank you to those that tried our tournament series out and gave us a chance.

     We are glad to announce that we will host 16 tournaments beginning in the spring, summer, and right into fall. Currently we have 10 FIVE TEAM shoot out events planned and 6 WOOD Bat tournaments. Ahhh, the sound of that wood cracking a ball! Beautiful! 

     We hope you'll find time to schedule your team for one of our tournaments and help us raise money for the PICO Field DREAM PARK project! Check out tournament dates on our TOURNAMENT page!
