Game Day USA is pleased to announce that it will bring its National Championships event to Crown Point, Indiana in 2016. The youth baseball event will take place at the new Sportsplex in Crown Point and will be fueled by Gatorade, the title sponsor for all of Game Day USA’s National Championships events.
The tournament event will involve athletes ages 8U-16U, and maximum capacity will be 100 teams. Competition will take place July 7-10, 2016, and organizers are planning a coaches golf outing and other special events to make sure visitors enjoy their stay in Crown Point.
Prior to coming to Crown Point, Game Day USA National Championships events have taken place in Chicago, Indianapolis, Milwaukee and Grand Rapids. They have attracted teams from all over the United States, as well as international teams from Canada, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.
“We selected Crown Point because of a commitment to excellence in all key areas that we look for – from the Mayor’s vision, to a top notch sports complex, to outstanding park staff and maintenance personnel – Crown Point has it all,” said Rich Janor, President/CEO of Game Day USA, based in Naperville, Illinois.
Organizers say that having a title sponsor like Gatorade, one of America’s best sports brands, will help boost enrollment. Participating teams will receive a special gift provided by Gatorade. Champions in every age division will go home with championship rings, modeled after Major League Baseball’s World Series rings.
Economic impact throughout the region is expected to be significant, from visitors staying in hotels, eating in restaurants, putting gas in their vehicles, golfing, shopping, and enjoying all Crown Point has to offer. In addition to traveling teams, Game Day USA also encourages local teams to participate in the event.
“Crown Point is thrilled to be the host of the Game Day USA National Championships and to have the opportunity to showcase our city. Making sure our guests have an outstanding experience is very important, and the event will benefit our own residents in countless ways,” said David Uran, the Mayor of Crown Point.
