Welcome to the 2017 USF Series!
University of South Florida (USF) softball began hosting tournament play in 1997. After traveling to different Bay area homes, the team settled in Clearwater in 2003. Since then, spring has transformed the Eddie C. Moore softball complex into THE diamond destination.
Partnering once again with the City of Clearwater, The St. Petersburg Clearwater Sports Commission, The Florida Sports Foundation, Bright House Networks, Under Armour and Michele Smith Fastpitch, USF softball proudly hosts the 2017 USF Series.
Join us in sparkling Clearwater to cheer on your favorite team and check out the best NCAA Women’s Collegiate Fast Pitch Softball has to offer!
USF and the City of Clearwater have played host to the last two Team USA pre-Olympic tours. In 2004, Team USA was bound for Athens. They made an appearance in Clearwater and created a USF milestone. USF head coach Ken Erickson played against his Bulls for the first time ever as part of the Team USA staff. Ken later traveled to Greece with Team USA and returned with a gold medal.
In 2008, Team USA returned during their Bound for Beijing tour. Sadly, this may have been their last appearance in Clearwater as the International Olympic Committee has cut the sport of softball from the program. We didn’t see them in 2016, but we have high hopes to welcome them back in 2017.
