2020 Hotel Policy

*UPDATED NOTE 2.1.20* PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE HOTELS DIRECTLY AS THIS CONFUSED ROOM NUMBERS, BLOCKS AND ALSO THE OVERALL RATES THAT THE TOURNAMENT NEGOTIATES ON EVERYONE’S BEHALF. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CONTACT OPERATIONS@FIRECRACKERSPORTS.COM FOR MORE DETAILS!

ALL TRAVELING TEAM MANAGERS/CLUB ADMINISTRATORS MUST REVIEW OUR HOTEL POLICY & RULES BELOW. FAILURE TO KNOW OUR POLICY COULD SUBJECT YOUR TEAM TO NON-ACCEPTANCE OR REMOVAL FROM THE TOURNAMENT

To insure the quality of service provided during Firecracker Sports events, there is a Hotel Obligation Policy.

WHAT IS A “HOTEL OBLIGATION” TOURNAMENT?

Simply stated, if your team requires hotel accommodations (team traveling 75 miles or more to the event’s destination city) your team MUST stay at one of the approved participating tournament partner hotels. These participating hotels are reviewable by clicking on the “hotel” links on the tournament event page or on the main page of Firecracker Sports. Reservations can be made prior to being accepted and should be made ASAP as the hotels fill up quick.  

WHY DOES THIS TOURNAMENT HAVE A “HOTEL OBLIGATION?”

We work very hard to keep our costs down and also balance the economic impact a tournament like ours can have towards the communities and programs we serve. The approved hotels on this website assist with both concerns and the following are the benefits to our programs:

  • To make it manageable we have room nights “blocked” for our out-of-town teams from our participating tournament partner hotels.
  • Because we do not use a Third Party Housing Group and we negotiate large blocks of rooms with the hotels directly, you’ll find a wide variety of best pricing and amenities from our hotels.
  • Care in selecting location and proximity to our playing field. See our “fields/facilities” tab to find out where your team most likely will be playing so you can lock down hotels near your fields.
  • All of our tournament hotels have been approved due to their quality and desire to give our guests the best event experience.
  • Room inventory which is shared with the tournament to ensure that room demands can be met from year to year.
  • By using participating tournament partner hotels, Firecracker Sports can offer our “Act of God” Clause. This states “Should this event be cancelled for reasons beyond the Event Organizer’s control (including weather), all outstanding reservations will be released at no charge to the participants.”

WHY ARE THERE PENALTIES FOR NOT ABIDING BY OUR HOTEL “HOTEL OBLIGATION” POLICY?

In order to best serve our out-of-town teams we need this to be a win-win for our guest teams and our hotel partners…If the rules are not followed then we jeopardize our relationships with these hotels and this could potentially add more costs to the teams.

WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR NOT FOLLOWING OUR POLICY?

  • Any accepted team to the 2020 tournament(s) who requires overnight accommodations and does not stay in one of our approved partner hotels will not be accepted to the tournament.
  • An accepted team to the 2020 tournament(s) who requires overnight accommodations and double books their team at more than one hotel will not be accepted to the tournament or will be removed from the tournament.
  • Teams who do not stay in our partner hotels will risk forfeiting their games and not be allowed to return to the tournament next year.

WHAT IF OUR TEAM DOES NOT GET ACCEPTED AND WE HAVE A HOTEL RESERVATION?

Teams will be able to cancel their hotel reservation if they are not accepted to the tournament.

Vs. Cancer Fundraiser

Firecracker Sports is proud to team up with Vs. Cancer for our upcoming 4th of July Showcase Tournament to bring awareness to pediatric cancer issues and support for further research!
Gather your teammates to fundraise with Vs. Cancer for an unforgettable tournament and a brighter future for children. Vs. Cancer works with baseball programs across the country to fund research and child life programs in local hospitals to support children battling brain tumors and other cancers.
Vs. Cancer empowers any sports team, any athlete, any community to help kids with cancer. As a signature fundraising campaign of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, proceeds are split between child life programs in local hospitals and national pediatric brain tumor research. Vs. Cancer was designed for athletes, by athletes. Started by a pediatric brain cancer survivor, and former baseball player at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chase Jones started this program so that every child feels they have a team rooting for their survival. We know from experience that both research and family support are critical for children to thrive.

2020 Fields & Facilities

We try to give all our student athletes and their families a first class experience by securing and enabling all our teams to play on the top facilities here in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We are getting close to our goal of securing all college fields for every age group! We would like to see all our teams play all their pool play and playoff games on top fields, including collegiately.

As you can see from the list below most of our divisions are exclusively played on collegiate fields including playoffs and Championships for our 13U and 14U Divisions. These younger divisions are given these unique playing opportunities which has become increasingly rare for other tournament providers. These fields and facilities are tentatively scheduled to host in 2020 but until schedules are finalized please inquire about your location before securing your hotels and travel plans.

18U/19U Division: Pool Play Fields (Playoffs on 4 collegiate facilities; Championship is at Rhode Island College)

2020 Tournament Rules

Thank you for your interest in Firecracker Sports and support for our baseball events.  We have updated several rules so there is more clarity to lineups, tie-breakers and other dynamics like home vs. away.

2020 Tournament Schedule

We work on releasing our schedules 2 MONTHS prior to any event we host and run throughout the calendar year. Once our event becomes full we begin to put the teams, fields and pool play together so you can plan your trip better to Providence, Rhode Island. This allows everyone to plan in advance their hotels, social events but also let the college programs you’re interested in know the playing times of your team if they are interested in attending.

We try to maintain first class customer service from the point of registration, all the way through our final Championship game of our events, so your experience always remains first class!
