Recruiting Seminar & Awards Ceremony:
The Recruiting Seminar & Awards Ceremony is held Monday evening and includes presentations by college coaches about what it takes both academically and athletically to play fastpitch at the Next Level. You will also hear from Fastpitch Northwest General Manager Mike Brooks. Players who achieved the top SPARQ and testing scores during the Prospect Evaluation Camps will be recognized as well. This event will be held in the NW Sports Hub Event Center also located in Borst Park. We encourage all parents and players to attend!
Fastpitch Northwest teams for this event are selected from players attending our regional Prospect Evaluation Camps. Players are invited to the June and July one day Prospect Evaluation Camps by recommendations from college, high school and club team coaches. All high school coaches are sent recommendation forms to nominate players for consideration. Players can nominate themselves for consideration by emailing Fastpitch Northwest.
Invitations for the Northwest Championship Tournament will go out to players via email after each Prospect Evaluation Camp. You must receive an invitation to register for this event. Player fee is $225.
What college coaches and recruiters will be in attendance?
We normally have representatives for over 80% of all NW Colleges in attendance at the Northwest Championships. We also recommend that players contact schools they are interested in to let them know they will be playing in the event.
Fort Borst Park is the most significant park facility in the city system. Because of its size, central location, varied natural features and diverse recreational opportunities, Fort Borst Park attracts large numbers of local and park users. This well developed park is located at the confluence of the Chehalis and Skookumchuck rivers and is the home to the historic Borst homestead, schoolhouse, arboretum and Fort Borst Blockhouse.
In addition to being an important historic site, the park’s athletic facilities include full service little league, softball, baseball and youth soccer fields. Additional athletic fields, an indoor pool and outdoor tennis complex are located nearby and jointly managed with the Centralia School District. Water access includes adjacent river frontages, Fort Borst Lake and concrete boat ramp along the Chehalis River.
