Grapevine Baseball & Softball Santa Cops Tournaments
Each year we team up with the Grapevine Santa Cops toy donation program to help collect toys for local families. We ask that each player bring an unwrapped toy as part of tournament fees ($20 value).
This tournament is designed for the true baseball or softball recreational All-Star team. All-Star teams or sanctioned Rec teams are welcome – no club teams or independent teams allowed. No select players allowed, period! This includes players who have guest played on a select roster (USSSA, Travel Sports, Triple Crown) during the current season (starting August 1, 2021).
All teams will play two (2) pool games with a single elimination bracket based on seeding from pool games.

Following registration for the tournament, the City of Grapevine will create each team a team account in the NCS software and teams will be added to the 2021 Santa Cops events on PlayNCS.com.
**Do NOT create your own account with NCS or teams will have to pay a membership fee. We will use the NCS platform as a way to collect team rosters, insurance and tournament scheduling.
**New this year, ALL head coaches will be asked to complete a background check which is a requirement for NCS tournaments. Head coaches will be sent a promo code so that they can bypass the background check fees.
All teams are required to have insurance and provide a copy of insurance for their players.
Birth certificates must be kept by coaches throughout the tournament and provided to the tournament staff if a protest has been made. Protests can be made at the time of the infraction with a $100 protest fee. If the protest is awarded, the protesting team will get their fee returned to them.
Three game guarantee: two pool games followed by single elimination bracket play
Awards given to the 1st and 2nd place in each division
Payments are required in advance
NO REFUND AFTER GAME TIMES ARE POSTED! The $75 administrative fee will not be refunded after the tournament starts. All refunds are determined as follows (Fee minus the $75 administrative divided by game guarantee), any game started counts as a game played. Full refunds will be given if the tournament is cancelled due to weather before the tournament starts.
