    • Common areas are open to both families and players, including the playground, arcade, concessions zone, and retail center

Registration Schedule and Fees

  • Planning for the Cooperstown tournaments begins a full year in advance, so teams should sign up ASAP
  • At time of registration:
    • Indicate at least 3 weeks during which the team could participate
    • Submit $1,000 deposit along with registration form

Qualifications and Preparation

  • The tournament is hosted by Cooperstown Dreams Park and is not associated with USSSA, Triple Crown, Little League, or any other national organization
  • Teams are not required to participate in any specific qualifying events, leagues, or tournaments; any team that plays 12u travel ball and successfully completes the registration process is eligible to participate
  • Teams are free to set their season tournaments schedule as they like to best prepare for Cooperstown
  • Because the field dimensions are unique, playing in one or more Training Legends Road to Cooperstown prep tournaments is strongly recommended
