East Coast Firecrackers Gold: Welcome
East Coast Firecrackers Gold
WE HAVE MOVED CHECK OUT OUR NEW SITE!!
Check "News" page for 2013/2014 Tryout informationWelcome to the home page of the East Coast Coast Firecrackers Gold. Nationally ranked #33(link below), the highest ranked team in New England, and 5th in the entire East Coast.
The East Coast Firecrackers are holding tryouts for both the ECF Gold and ECF Elite teams at Merrimack College Softball field at the below dates and times.
Thanks to everyone that helped make this years Summer Sizzler a great success. Special thanks to TGSL and all their volunteers that helped out!! We had 35 College Coaches and great softball and weather. Next year I will be adding a College Showcase Camp on the Thursday before the tourney and I will be posting more info on that as well as the dates. Thanks again!
We are trying to grow this tournament into one of the best College Showcase events in New England, and to accommodate that we have moved the tournament to Tewksbury Massachusetts and the Livingston St/Field of Dreams 8 field complex. This will allow College Coaches to see more games and more teams all in one complex, which will make the tournament better for everyone!!! We are also adding a 16u division this year. The application can be found in the handouts section. We will continue to have our tournament have the competitive edge that College Coaches are looking for by having 4 Pool Games seeding into Elimination Brackets for a 5 Game Guarantee tournament(weather permitting). We have kept the cost down again this year and you won't find a better value tournament period for $700 with a chance to play 7 games if you get to your Bracket Championship game! Please download the application and follow the payment and mailing instructions on the application
We would also like to welcome and thank our Firecracker Summer Sizzler Tournament co-host Tewksbury Girls Softball(TGSL)!!!
For those teams travelling in from out of the area, the Hotel information is on the tourney page that you can access from the menu on the left.
