Softball: All-Star Classic
Congratulations on having an athlete selected to the Florida Athletic Coaches Association 2017 All-Star Softball Team. The 28th Annual FACA All-Star Softball Classic is set for Forest High School, Ocala, on June 2-3, 2017. Please give the enclosed material to your athlete and see that she completes the forms and returns them to the FACA Office (P.O. Box 13805, Tallahassee, FL 32317) (fax – 850-727-8194) or email to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10th.
It is very important that your athlete brings her softball cleats, batting helmet and high school uniform to wear in the games.
If you have not returned the All-Star player sponsorship and $150.00 check, please send immediately to the FACA Office(each coach with a player in the game is required to secure a $150.00 player sponsorship and must be paid before participating). We are working on a short deadline for the All-Star Game Souvenir Program. If we do not have your players sponsorship check by May 15th she will not be able to participate in the 2017 Classic. Use the enclosed sponsorship form (attach picture and check made out to FACA) and mail to FACA Office.
The enclosed player Information Form must be typed or printed clearly (used for the program). Stats should be the 2017 regular season. Must be returned to FACA Office by May 10, 2017. Fax to 850-727-8194 or email to email@example.com .
The FACA will provide rooms for the All Stars and All Star coaching staff, but if parents or coaches need a room (at your expense), they should call the headquarters hotel and let them know you are with the FACA Softball All-Star Classic to get the special rate as long as rooms are available.
Thank you for your support. Hope to see you in Ocala for the 28th Annual FACA All-Star Softball Classic!
