Acers Mother's Day Tournament Signups!

The Acers organization is proud to announce some big changes for the Acers Mother's Day Tournament in 2015.  We've listened to feedback from the teams and have made some changes that should make the event a more enjoyable experience for the players and families.

Changes this year

  • There is no longer a hotel requirement.  We have secured rooms in a variety of Marriott properties but you are welcome to stay where you'd like.
  • After a couple years of experimenting with an 18U division, we have eliminated it for this year.  We just don't have enough quality fields and local umpires to work the event and decided to cut this division.
  • The 14U division will have 3 divisions.  You need to request your division when you sign up on the ASA site by entering a comment.  Your feedback will be reviewed and we will place you in the division that is appropriate for your team's playing level.  In bracket play, some teams will move up or down based on their results from pool play.
  • We are using the following complexes:  10U ( Dacca ), 12U-A ( Game Farm ), 12U-B ( Steven J Underwood ), 14U ( Celebration Park, Russell Road, Kent Service Club )

All divisions are a 4 game guarantee except for the 14U division which will be a 5 game guarantee.

You will be accepted into the tournament once your team has paid.  If a division is full, you will be placed in a waiting list.  How to sign up:

1) Register on the ASA site:

2) Make payment online:


Thank you for considering our tournament.

18G NW -- Amy Wilson amyimckean@gmail.com

The Acers 18 Gold Wilson team is planning to pursue a competitive 18 Gold schedule. Our intent is to provide exposure opportunities and help girls to find the right collegiate fit from an academic, athletic and geographic perspective. This will include trips in the Fall to Texas or California and Oregon and attending the Colorado Sparkler, Valley invite, and gold level national qualifying tournaments in the summer. Pick-up opportunities within the organization could be available for some exposure tournaments.

We return nine players and are looking to add four players. All positions will be considered excluding catcher and a substantial amount of circle time will be available for the right pitcher(s).  We are looking for dedicated, hard-working, and passionate athletes that love the game of softball.

18G Anderton -- Mark Anderton andertonsports@aol.com

We are primarily a recruiting/ exposure team during the fall and early spring, with an emphasis of getting college orientated players in front of prospective coaches. However in the summertime we then focus on the Champions Cup and Gold Nationals with numerous other tournaments being played.

We are looking for dedicated athletic players, with a desire and commitment to play at the highest level. They must also be willing to do more than the minimum and will sacrifice almost anything to reach their potential.
