“Coachie Classic” Donald Thompson Tournament Team Registration




In memory of Donald Thompson, a young man who was in a fatal motorcycle accident in the summer of 1984, the Greater Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the Village of Mackinaw City, will host the thirty-sixth annual “Coachie Classic” co-ed Donald Thompson Softball Tournament on September 7th and 8th, 2019.

This is the first year the Chamber will host the event, and we are modifying the name as a tribute to Dave Paquet “Coachie” who has dedicated so much time and energy to making the event successful over the years.

Entry fee is $200.00 with trophies awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams.  Shirts will be given to the 1st place team.  There will also be female and male MVP trophies awarded.

Right of first refusal will be given to previous year participants, and then waiting list teams will be contacted. Your team entry fee must be received by August 6th.  After that date, open registration will begin and entry fees will be collected and assigned in order of date received until the tournament is full.

Please include your teams sponsor’s name, manager’s name, address, email and phone number so we can communicate team playing time.  The parings and tournament brackets will be sent out as soon as possible so teams can make their necessary plans.  If you DO NOT plan on participating this season please inform us as soon as possible.

For teams that may be traveling any distance and wish to stay overnight please contact the Mackinaw City Chamber of Commerce for travel and accommodation information.

You are invited to bring your own alcoholic beverages if desired.  A concession stand will be available.

Registration is currently open to returning teams only. Registration will open to teams on the wait list on August 1st, and new teams August 6th.

Please do not submit payment at this time unless you are a returning team.
