December 11, 2015

Las Vegas, NV -  The event will be held April 8-10, 2016. As like last year, first round games will start on Friday at noon and the Championship games will be scheduled for 3:00 PM on Sunday, with IF games immediately following if necessary.

The ninth edition of the Las Vegas Road Trip mens fast pitch tournament
dates has been confirmed. The event will be held April 8-10, 2016.

As like
last year, first round games will start on Friday at noon and the
Championship games will be scheduled for 3:00 PM on Sunday, with IF games
immediately following if necessary. Teams flying in and out should make
plans to be ready to play early on Friday and late times on Sunday in the
event the brackets are running late. Last year we had 33 teams competing
and games started at noon on Friday and made things very smooth for players
throughout the weekend.

While this tournament is a NAFA sanctioned event, it is run by the SCIFL
and any questions regarding this tournament must go through the SCIFL
Tournament Director Jesse Ortiz.

Teams will be separated in the following divisions:

A-Major (depending on amount of teams)
AA/AA-Major (depending on the amount of teams)

The split in the higher classifications will be based on the amount of
teams that enter. The NAFA pitcher's list will be used to monitor pitchers
in the tournament as well as the team's current classification. No open
class pitchers are allowed to pitch in this tournament. Confirmation into
the tournament will be based on the entry fee and roster being received.
The classification list posted on the NAFA web site on January 31, 2016
will be the list that is used to classify pitchers. There will be no
appeals for pitchers after that date for this tournament.

The entry fee for the tournament is $420 and the NAFA 3-game guarantee
bracket will be used for all divisions. It is open to all fast pitch teams
and it is your responsibility to pay your State Director the NAFA Team
Registration fee. With a minimum of eight (8) teams in a division, the
winner will have their 2016 NAFA World Series entry fee paid for the
division they played in. Also, to help keep tournament costs down, if your
team books at least five (5) rooms and stays at our host hotel on Friday
and Saturday nights you will receive $25 back on your entry fee.

Teams interested in participating should contact Jesse Ortiz by email, as
soon as possible, at or by cell at 661-510-8928 and
inform him if your team can play all three days. Teams that can play all
three days will be placed on the priority list, teams that say they can
only play on Saturday and Sunday will be placed on the secondary list. No
one will be given a "selected" game time as everyone is traveling to the

Entry fees will start to be collected on January 2, 2016 and once it's
received you will be sent an email to confirm your entry. Once the
tournament is full, teams providing their entry fee will be placed on a
waiting list and entered if any teams drop out. All teams will need to
submit their entry fee along with their teams roster listing all their
players and identifying their pitchers to ensure teams are placed in their
proper classification.
