Welcome to the 2022 GSL Youth Tournament schedule and season overview. We are extremely proud to be a partner and resource for the youth baseball community in the Pacific Northwest! Below you will find details for our events, how everything is tied together, as well as how to properly determine what is the best fit for your program.

MAJORS AND AAA – COMPETITION LEVELS

Each age group (9-14U) will have the option to select AAA or Majors within your age division. Our foremost goal is to provide the proper level of competition to every team in order to promote growth, development and a positive experience. GSL Tournaments will suggest teams to move up and or down based on results. Typically, if a team in over .750 or under .250 winning percentage with an average run differential of +or- 5.5/game, we will recommend they move either up or down. The rules are the exact same within each division regardless of AAA or Majors with exception of 10U Majors being leadoff and 10U AAA being no leadoff. 10U Majors plays on 46′ mounds and 70′ bases while AAA plays on 46′ mound and 60′ bases.

When registering your teams, we strongly encourage teams to consider the this; If there were unlimited teams each weekend and we could split divisions however we would like, we have found the best competition for teams is the following:
8U would combine and play with 9U AAA
9U Majors would combine and play with 10U AAA
10U Majors compete better with 11U AAA than 10U AAA – this also ensures they can play leadoff and dropped third strikes. 11U throws from 50′ rather than 46′.
If there are not enough 11U Majors teams, we would recommend playing up with the 12U AAA rather than down with the 11U AAA.

We will never make any of the following adjustments without first checking with teams but as a rule of thumb, this is a good way to measure which division to chose.

PRESEASON INDOOR TOURNAMENTS – January 5th through February 27th

All teams MUST be able to play Friday evening. These events are only for 8-12U teams due to field size. Games are all 1 hour 20 minute no new inning. These events will cap at 40 teams per event. We will not accept offline payments for these tournaments since they are in such high demand and timely payments are important for making sure the entry numbers are accurate.

SPRING TOURNAMENTS: LEAGUE OF CHAMPIONS – March 5th through April 16th

GSL Tournaments is always looking to add value to the experience of our teams and players. We will continue the League of Champions as part of our Spring Tournament Season. These events will all be run as tournaments but teams will amass points based on pool wins, bracket wins and championships over the 6 week time period. The top 8 teams of each division will compete in a single elimination tournament (2gg) at no cost to crown each divisions Champions! This event will occur on Easter Saturday, April 16th.

TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS SEASON – April 16th through July 31st

April and May events will be 3 game guarantees. June and July events will be 4 game guarantees. We will have two types of events, GOLD AND SILVER. There will be 8 gold events and 9 silver events. Gold events will be structured slightly different with stronger prize packages and the winners will receive a bid into the Tournament of Champions held July 29-31st. We will also take the top 4 overall point earners during this season who have NOT won a gold tournament. The Tournament of Champions will be a 8-12 team, double elimination, 3gg tournament designed to crown the top team from each age division in the Pacific Northwest. This event is only available to specified tournament champions (or runners up if champion is already in/declines) and there is a $300.00 entry fee.
