FASA Western Nationals Itinerary
June 1, 2018 – Opening Ceremonies at Desert Sun Stadium
6:30 pm – Team Parade. With the Colorado River at our backyard, our theme will include a Tube Float. Who hasn’t enjoyed a float down on the Colorado River. Tube floating down the Colorado River is as common as apple pie in the state of Arizona!
For the team parade, each player will be required to wear their team jersey with an inflated Tube Float around their waist. We welcome for each player to decorate their tube float and/or person for the parade. Teams will begin at left field and walk pass behind home plate; proceeding to right field. Teams and Coaches will be announced as they pass home plate. Parents and Supporters will be allowed access to the stands to show support for their players. This will be a great opportunity for photos and video. We will have 3 Honorary judges from our community to choose the players with the best decorated Tube Float.
