HS coach is holding a meeting for planning a FL tournament during spring break. Has anyone got advice or recommendations for a good tournament?

We used to go to ESPN WWOS in Orlando. It was their favorite trip. The only thing was the competition was either extremely weak or very good (more the former for us). There just didn‘t seem to be a happy medium for our type of team (small, private school but competitive). I think if you are a larger, competitive school there will be more competition at your level. Since we were a small school, it seemed we faced a few JV teams and non-competitive small schools.

Our first game there we got to face Ryleigh White - although she made us look pretty silly, our defense did a decent job hanging with her HS team which is a perennial powerhouse in NJ. We lost 9-0 but we settled down after the first couple of innings. We were well aware of who she was. That was the only game we lost.

Competition will likely be on the weaker side during the spring in FL. Most teams go dark during HS ball. I have never been a fan of anything at WWOS. The lightning detector will go off during the spring. You will walk miles emptying the park. The facility is nice though and you have Disney.

PGF will put on the most competitive. UTRIP usually has a good showing.

ISA has a good following in the CFL area and NSA in Clearwater area. The competition will typically be lower in these orgs.

While I’m not a fan of Newberry and Viera complexes for varying reasons, they are turf and will get you back to playing the quickest when the afternoon thunderstorms roll in. Panama City Beach is my favorite turf complex and hosts several events.

I believe the OP is talking about HS spring break tourneys, not travel ball.

Luckily, we never had rain the two times we were in FL for our HS spring training trips.
