2015 Carolina Cardinals Tournament Dates
Entry forms will be available under the "Handouts" section
 

New in 2015, due to some issues with having enough hotel rooms for our various tournaments, we have decided to try a housing service. We have contracted "Traveling Teams" to block rooms at all our tournaments. Hopefully this will make hotel arrangements more seamless. We will require all teams to book rooms through them for 2015. There will be a website and hotel links for each tournament. We will give this a try and see how it works.
 
Here are the dates for our 2015 tournaments:
Cardinals Early Bird, Rock Hill, SC, June 5-7, 2015

ABOUT THE TEAM:
The Carolina Cardinals are one of the oldest and most prestigious fastpitch progams in the nation.
The 2013 18U Carolina Cardinals Chandler team continues to carry on the vision and legacy our founder, Coach Ray Chandler.
The Carolina Cardinals Chandler are the reigning "2013  ASA / USA 18U A National Champions" going 7-0 in Salem, VA to win this prestigious tournament yet again.
The Cardinals were the "2006  ASA / USA 18U A National Champions" and finished "runner up" in the 2012 ASA / USA 18U A National Championship Finals.
We play a highly competitive schedule of ASA and PGF tournaments nationally, including the Sun Classic, Team NJ, Independence Day in Boulder, CO, and ASA Nationals.
The team foundation is centered around knowing and believing in the importance of the physical, mental and spiritual pieces of the game. These young ladies know that attitude and effort can make the difference on the field and off!  The Carolina Cardinals team knows that striving to be a better ball player is really about striving to be a better person.  These girls believe that life’s most valuable lessons are found on every corner of the field. They know that the time spent on the DIAMOND will be what makes them SHINE in life.

_____________________________________ 


Our goal is to give each of our players every opportunity to showcase their talent to as many college coaches and scouts as possible, in hopes that they can realize their dreams of playing at the collegiate level.
Congratulations to all our  graduates who will  play in college.
