I won't say much after all this is the RANT thread. First year 10u team, (been coaching for 30 years) playing our 5th tournament of the summer this weekend. Every tournament thus far has been 70-75 minute time limit. Time limits continue to become less yet tournament fees continue to increase. Will it ever stop? I wonder how many games our team and others might win or lose if the games were longer. Have to say and not because I am with the Wolfpack, however after helping this Friday at the ASA 18u states in Canton that our Org hosted, kudos to our Organization and or ASA on whoever decided on 80 minute finish the inning + 1 inning in double elim bracket play games. In the end, I wish there was a way to remedy this situation. Paying all this $ to play a couple innings is ridiculous. I think pool play is okay to be kept at a minimal time limit with no ITB however elimination games that count should be longer or complete games not just championship games. I know I am beating a dead horse here however when is this great sport gonna be about the girls and their future instead of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ In most cases it takes most of us longer to drive to a tournament then the time we get to play. Really??????
