The Peach State Kickball Tournament Series is designed to encourage and foster competition and sportsmanship amongst teams, players and coaches in Georgia’s Kickball Community!! This tournament series will provide teams the excitement & experience of national tournament events, without the challenges of ever leaving the state. Additionally, we aim NOT to be a distraction nor conflict to ANY Georgia League, but rather be a platform by which ALL leagues can be represented through their teams participation, sportsmanship!
The Peach State Kickball Tournament is a series of qualifying events, hosted at various parks in Metro Atlanta, in which teams earn points and compete for bragging rights and a lil cash! The series of qualifying events culminate in a Championship Tournament Event. After the 5 qualifying tournament events, ONLY the top 8 teams are eligible to participate in the Championship Tournament and win the cash prize! Thus…. The more qualifying events you participate in, the more points you will earn, and the BETTER are your chances are of being in the TOP 8 teams.
-Looking for competition AND want to make your team BETTER… Well, Here You Go! This Tournament Series allows teams to compete against other teams right here in the area, that they otherwise would NOT compete against unless they joined that teams League. Join this tournament series and compete against teams that you’ve never seen before. Let’s be honest.. There’s NO real benefit in traveling 3-4 hours away looking for “competition”, when you have teams RIGHT in your backyard that can provide you the SAME experience of competition. That experience of competition being: The idea of playing against a team you’ve never seen nor played in hopes of making your team better..
