Spring Swing invite request form (PDF)

Perfect Game will be hosting college (including D-I, D-II, D-III, NAIA and JUCO) and high school tournaments at LakePoint starting in 2015. 
College and high school events running simultaneously will allow unparalleled recruiting opportunities for both high schools and colleges.

We are currently in the process of building the Spring Swing web page, in which the sign-up and invite request process will be completely interactive in the near future. In the meantime, to request your invite today fill out the invite request form (linked just above), and send to Kevin Herlihy via email at kevin@perfectgame.org.


Scheduling
All of our scheduling will be done by our staff with over 17 years of scheduling experience. Registration is being developed to be available online at the Perfect Game website. Once all registered teams have been accepted, coaches will receive a list of the participating teams. They will then be able to fill out a schedule request form allowing them to indicate their preferences on games per day, practice dates, off days, and who they want to or do not want to play. Coaches may indicate additional preferences such as games based on region, last year’s win loss record, and/or conference.

Lodging
All hotel bookings must be completed through Experient. We offer very competitive hotel prices in comparison to other collegiate and high school spring events. The majority of our hotel partners will offer two beds per room.

Affordability
Our fees are not packaged together allowing us to keep costs to a minimum. Games costs, hotels rates, gate fees, and meals are all separate allowing teams to pick a combination that best fits their budget. There is no registration fee, and the deposit of $675 (three game minimum) will be credited towards the total price.

Facilities
LakePoint Sports will be a premier sports-related vacation destination upon completion. The venue is set to house eight major league size parks (expanding to 16 in the future), complete with Shaw Sports TruHop Turf and clay mounds. 32 mounds as well as 16 cages will be available to teams. Fields will be set up in quad fashion; each set of four fields will surround a state-of-the-art enclosed scout tower. The scout towers will provide a clear vision path to any field at any time for scouts and college recruiters. LakePoint will eventually feature hotels and dining establishments making the entire experience self-contained with little to no travel required upon arrival. There are more plans for expansion in the coming years. There are big things in the works, and we’d love for you to be one of the first in on the action.

The technology Perfect Game offers is second to none. TrackMan was designed using Doppler radar for military use to track missiles. It is the newest and most sophisticated technology being utilized by our scouting staff. This is the same technology many MLB teams are currently using. The data will be available at no extra cost.

Customer Service
Perfect Game is devoted to furthering the development and career of the talented baseball player. To that end, Perfect Game hosts the highest quality and most prestigious amateur baseball events (showcases and tournaments), nationally. These events have proven invaluable to the college coaching community and Major League Baseball as they can scout a large population of players in a single location. Perfect Game employs approximately 50 full-time staff members, nearly all with vast professional and/or college baseball experience. Perfect Game has the largest scouting department in all of baseball, and the Perfect Game database is the largest of its kind anywhere in baseball. At any given time there will be nearly 100,000 players being followed via the database.

Umpires
Perfect Game does not allow hiring local umpires like many other tournaments. We are committed to providing qualified umpires for the appropriate division that they will be officiating. All umpires will be hired through Perfect Game’s UmpNation which has access to umpires from the professional ranks to the high school level. UmpNation also currently assigns umpires to Florida Spring Training for Professional Baseball. We will offer the opportunity for coaches to submit feedback on umpires.

Proximity to Atlanta Airport
There’s no need to travel to Florida for your spring season! Perfect Game’s facility at LakePoint is located nearly 500 miles closer than any other collegiate tournament, and less than 50 miles from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
