We are set to kick of our 2023 Ultimate BeepBall Tournament Saturday, September 9th at Scheve Park in Mascoutah Illinois. Here is everything you will need to know for participants, volunteers, and supporters who want to come to the event!
Scheve Park: Harnett St. & Harper Rd. Mascoutah, IL 62258
There is not a specific address for the Park, but if you type ”Scheve Park Mascoutah IL” into Apple Maps or Google Maps, it will get you there!
If coming by Ride Share, have them drop you off on Park Drive by the Pavilion.
What to do when you arrive:
There is plenty of parking behind the ball fields off of 10th street, by the Mascoutah AG Building. When you get to the park, check in at registration under the Pavilion splitting the 2 main fields off of Park Dr. There your team captain, or designated team member, can pick up your team shirts (if your team got any), blindfolds and will be shown where your field is.
Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your first game time. It really helps us stay on schedule for the day to start games on time.
Every participant at this years Ultimate BeepBall Tournament will have to sign our digital waiver. It can be done anytime before your first game here:
We will have cold water on hand in coolers throughout the day. Everyone is welcome to bring their own cooler and refreshments for the day. We will not have a food vendor this year or a concessions stand. You are free to bring your own food, or go to various establishments around Mascoutah when not playing games or volunteering at a field.
We will have at least 1 tent at each field positioned behind home plate. Though we will try, we cannot guarantee each bench will have their own tent, so feel free to bring your own, or we can all share tent space during the games.
A copy of this years rules can be found here:
New This Year:
To make the game as fair as we can since we are mixing sighted players with visually impaired players, unless you have a specific blindfold (MindFold or Goalfix), all players will wear a silk blindfold with plastic goggles over them to ensure proper blackout coverage. We don’t want any peaking by tilting your head up. If players are caught trying to get around the blindfolds, calls may be reversed.
