26th Annual Ronald McDonald Tournament- 2018
For over 25 years, the softball community has looked forward to the Ronald McDonald tournament in Houston, Texas as an opportunity to get college coach exposure and give back to charity. This is one of Triple Crown’s finest fall events, long ago becoming a mandatory stop for college coaches from all levels looking to recruit quality athletes.
In addition, this event benefits the Ronald McDonald House (Houston), an organization that helps families with seriously ill children stay close together during difficult times by providing a “home away from home” while their child receives the treatment they need. In 2017, we donated $26,000 and plan to top this amount in 2018. The event assists the charity by donating $100.00 per team, along with 10% of vendor revenue and T-shirt sales.
The 2018 Ronald McDonald format for 14U, 16U and 18U consists of six showcase games played on standout facilities in greater Houston. All showcase games begin on Saturday, October 20th. There will also be practice games offered Friday, where teams will have the option of 1-2 games for $100 each (umpires included). There will also be three Power Pool groups per 16U and 18U at the Scrap Yard. These will be chosen by TCS National Club Rankings.
The following weekend will host the 10u and 12u teams in Woodlands, Texas. The 4-game guarantee begins Saturday, October 27th.

Things Every Softball Player Must Do
Here are five things you can do to make sure you’re on the right track to getting a softball scholarship.
1. Know the game. Develop a clear understanding of NCAA rules and core course requirements. Create a recruiting game plan, then execute it with the same dedication you bring to your sport and your academic work.
2. Get verified. Make sure to have information about your athletic ability and academic qualifications verified by a source that college softball coaches trust, like NCSA, and make sure it’s available online. This can vastly increase your chances of being “discovered.”
3. Get your video out there. Make sure that your highlight video and full game footage is viewable online or available in a format that can be easily distributed over the web as soon as a college coach requests it. Use our tools to get evaluated—this will help you target the right softball programs and help coaches find you more easily.
4. Contact 50-100 “right-fit” schools. Take a realistic look at your academic qualifications and athletic ability and set your recruiting targets accordingly. There are 289 Division II and 412 Division III schools that offer softball scholarships, and they can be great options for student athletes with the commitment and drive to play at the college level. Then go after them – you need to contact 50-100 realistic programs to get recruited.
5. Take control. You and your family – and not your high school coach – are ultimately responsible for the outcome of your recruiting process. This is why many families turn to NCSA. We help you take control, put the tools in your hands, and match you with our network of 2,000 college softball coaches.

College Softball Recruiting
The Bigger Picture
Athletes are just one injury away from never playing again so they should base their choice on academics. Majority of college athletes understand that the chances are very slim to play at the professional level so that means choosing a college that is great in the athletic department as well as academics is a win-win situation. If something goes wrong in a student-athlete’s sports career, at least they will receive a great education that no one can take away from them.
There are over 1800 colleges and universities, which one is right for you? Start finding scholarship opportunities so you can get an education and play your sport at the next level. Click here to build your athletic and academic resume to share with college coaches.
How Important is Location to You?
Student-athletes should consider a few questions that will determine preference for location of a college they are interested in:
1.) Do I want to be in a rural, suburban, or urban setting?
2.) Is there a particular climate I would like? Switching from a warm southern climate to a weather-bound city like New York or Chicago can often have a profound affect on a child’s spirits.
3.) Is there public transportation or will I need a car?
Location might play a big factor in choosing the best fit for you. Click here to create a free recruiting profile and start learning about open roster spots.
