As a National Program, USA Elite Select aspires to bring our athletes, coaches, parents, and entire fastpitch community together to educate, inspire, and empower them to use sport as a vehicle to create positive change.
This year we are rallying behind Emma Stumpf to help knock Kansas City off her list. Emma, who played USSSA fastpitch in Indy, beat cancer and underwent multiple brain surgeries. She has used her adversity and passion for art to bring light to thousands of pediatric cancers by supplying children’s hospitals with art supplies. Help us help Emma!!

How to donate:
Each park will be equipped with multiple buckets/bins to collect art supplies for the entire week! Bins will also be out Monday afternoon at The DoubleTree for coaches check-in as well as the Tailgate Party.
