The German Youth Softball Championship for players in the U16 age group (up to 16 years old) will take place again this year in the Cougars Ballpark. At the 14th edition of the tournament, which is also open to gaming communities, players born between 2007 and 2010 as well as additional jumpers are eligible to play in accordance with BuSpO Art. 12.1.01 and .02.
Because 8 teams registered this year, the games will only be played on two fields instead of three. The following eight teams or syndicates are taking part. Some individual players from other clubs have also joined various gaming communities, so that a total of 15 clubs are represented by 111 players:
Customizable merchandising items can be printed and purchased during the tournament by Fine Designs.
A tournament like this cannot be carried out without the commitment of many helpers. Ground crew, catering and scoring need to be organized and umpires are needed to conduct the game. At this point we would like to thank everyone in advance who sacrifices their free time to make progress in the youth softball sector.
