Norman NEXT plans kickball tournament

NORMAN — Norman NEXT has scheduled its fall kickball tournament for 1-5 p.m. on Oct. 28 at Griffin Park. As in the past, the proceeds from the tournament will benefit a local charity. This year’s fall tournament will benefit Bridges, Among Friends and the Community After School Program.

Team sponsor dollars raised will benefit Bridges and Among Friends and item donations will directly benefit CASP. Donations being sought this year include dolls, action figures and board games.

Teams are encouraged to dress up since the event is just days before Halloween. Trophies will be awarded to the Championship team as well as the best costumed team.

Once again local celebrity umpires will add to the event’s fun spirit. So far Mark and Debra Krittenbrink, Jimmy Irwin, Robert and Robyn Castleberry, Jason Dixon, John Woods and Scott Martin have agreed to serve as celebrity umpires.

New this year is the fun group, competitive group and the kids’ option. The fun group is for players who enjoy the game, but aren’t as crazy about the competition itself. The competitive group will be teams entered into the full tournament vying for the coveted championship trophies and tshirts.

The fun group winning team will be allowed to take on the competitive group if they decide they’re ready to step up. Kids have always accompanied their parents, this year we want them to play along. Beginning around 3:30 the kids in attendance will be put into teams to enjoy their own kickball experience.
