ASA 16Gold Nationals - July 21-26 - Broken Arrow, OK
Passed at the 2013 ASA/USA Softball National Council Meeting, the 16U GOLD National Championship will feature 48 of the top 16-Under teams from across the country! Details are still developing, so be sure to check back to find out how/where to qualify and much more!

Qualifying for 16Gold Nationals is going to be similar to Qualifying for 18Gold Nationals. There are (48) total berths; (12) per Territory; each Territory will host (2) qualifiers TBA allotting (6) berths per qualifier. There are no Regional Qualifiers or State Qualifiers for 16Gold.
I was told one of the Southern Territory Qualifiers will probably be in Baton Rouge LA and the other will be somewhere in the Southeast U.S., maybe Georgia/Alabama area.
Not sure if its going to be like 18Gold, where once you classify as 16Gold, you are locked for that season and cannot play 16A if you do not qualify for 16Gold.
