Slopitch For Special Olympics - Second Annual | Barrie Community Sports Complex | Saturday, 19. May 2018


Hello ball friends. This is a fundraiser tournament for the Barrie Special Olympics and some of our softball team athletes who have been selected to raise money for their trip to the Special Olympics National Summer Games happening this summer in Nova Scotia.

It will run on Saturday, May 19th at the Barrie Sports Complex in Midhurst (2100 Nursery Rd.). The event will run from 8 am until possibly 11:00 pm.

We will be taking 24 teams max as we have 4 diamonds but possibly only 16. 6 and 4 Coed Division only. So secure your spot today!

At the event we will be working with the complex concessionaire who sells hotdogs and hamburgers for sale as well as cold drinks and chips. And they will be donating a percentage of their profits to us at the end of the day.

We will be having a 50/50 and raffling off donated items.. If you are able to sponsor this event and/or donate items for raffle or if you know of someone who can please contact myself (Dustin Agar) @ slopitch4so@gmail.com or directly at 249-877-7225.

Each team will have one of our Special Olympics athletes from the Provincial Barrie Selects team. We ask that each team be accepting of this as this tournament is for them and this is a fun tournament.

It will be NSA rules as most of you are used to already from playing in the Barrie league. If you are not I will post them and let each captain know.

Each captain is asked to email transfer the fees for the tournament which is $350.00/team for a guaranteed 4 games. Money is emailed to slopitch4so@gmail.com and please make the password "slopitch" We ask that each team please put a deposit of $100 due by April 20th,2018.

If anyone would like to volunteer in helping run some behind the scenes stuff please contact me as that would be greatly appeciated.

Any further questions/comments/suggestions please message me directly or email slopitch4so@gmail.com or call/text me at 249-877-7225.

Thanks for your support and see you on the field.

First 16 teams that secure their spot with a $50 deposit will be entered for sure. Hoping to do 24 teams this year and depending on the interest a max of 32 and maybe a women's and/or mens division. Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year!
