The Traverse City Waves are happy to welcome back the Great Wolf Lodge as a major sponsor of the Waves 2020 Summer Tournament Series. If you've never stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge, you should! Large rooms, great location, many amenities on site, and the best waterpark in Traverse City waiting for players to splash around in after their games....it's a blast! Contact Brett Bowman at 231-534-9074 to reserve your room or a block of rooms for your team.
The Waves is an organization formed in 2004 and based in Traverse City, and provides the opportunity for young players to learn and enjoy the game of softball. Former Waves players have had successful high school sports and academic careers...played softball in college...won national championships in rowing...earned all-area, all-region, and all-state honors in softball and other sports...made successful transitions into college, graduated from college, established professional careers...and more! The Waves organization has funded over $11,000 in college scholarships and continues to emphasize providing opportunities for girls to excel athletically and academically while having fun playing softball.
The Waves hosted the fourteenth Traverse City Softball Spectacular in 2019. Because of overwhelmingly positive feedback from our visiting teams, we added the Northern Classic tournament in 2008 to allow more teams the opportunity to combine a mini-vacation in the Traverse City area with a first class, enjoyable tournament. The Cherry Capital Showdown was added to the tournament schedule a few years ago and has quickly become a favorite among teams from throughout the state. In 2016, the Spring Splash was added to the series, an early-season tournament for younger teams. The two-year-old Bayside Bash offers a chance to experience the National Cherry Festival along with playing in a fun, quality tournament. Finally, 2016 also saw the start of the Futures Challenge, a low-key one day tune-up tournament for teams that have just selected their squads for next summer season. We would love to have your team participate in our tournaments. Please send a note if you're interested in bringing your team to Traverse City.
Thank you to the Great Wolf Lodge for sponsoring the 2019 Waves Summer Softball Series! Visiting teams: Contact Brett Bowman at 231-534-9074 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve rooms for the tournament weekend
