The teams and players competing in the Southern Championships will infuse more than $1 million into the Dalton and Whitfield County economies over the course of the tournament. Teams play in the Southern Championships to qualify for the World Championships in Las Vegas, Sept. 15- Oct. 2.
The World Championships is the largest softball tournament in the country, drawing 650 teams from the United States, Canada and a number of International Co-Ed Teams. The champions of each division in the Southern Championships will also earn berths to our invite-only 17th Annual Tournament of Champions held in Polk County, Fla., next February.
All invited players have a gala sit-down banquet for 1,500 players and their families and divisional winners receive free quality rings (from Jostens – the maker of championship rings for MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL) and bats for MVPs.
