By Community | May 21, 2014

Clearwater in Florida (USA) ) will host the top event in 19-and-under female fast pitch softball in 2017, International Softball executives have announced today. 

The XII ISF Junior Women’s World Championship will take place 24-30 July 2017. 

The event will mark the first time that Clearwater has ever hosted an ISF World Championship. 

The United States will now host back-to-back junior women’s — the 2015 tournament will be contested in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and the 2016 Junior Men’s World Championship in Midland, MI. 

“I have every confidence that Clearwater will put on an exceptional world championship. The ISF looks forward to working closely with the organisers,” WBSC Executive Vice President for Softball and ISF President Dale McMann said. “The location and top notch facilities will be an asset for the top youth female softball athletes to compete. This is an important competition opportunity for this age category to be able to continue to test their skills against their counterparts from around the world.” 

The Eddie C. Moore Complex — featuring nine softball fields and state of the art training facility — will host the championship.
