The Twenty-First First Responders Cup is now scheduled for September 10 and 11, 2022 in Arlington Virginia.
We are still in the early stages of defining the complement of teams. Hopefully, we will be able to expand the field over the Covid-Limited field of last year.
If you are interested in playing, we encourage you to fill out and submit the registration form. Given the uncertainty of the field, we recommend you withhold payment of the registration fee until such time that you receive an invitation.
We will continue to collaborate with Marymount University to expand the experience for rising players. Stay Tuned for more exciting NEWS on this year's Tournament!

The 2021 Championship Summary.
Twenty teams participated in the 20th First Responders Cup Tournament this year. We purposely limited the field to 20 teams in respect for the COVID threat. All games were played at the Barcroft Sports Complex on September 11th and September 12th.
The Champions were the Maryland InteGRITy at the 12 and Under Division, the VA Glory Norton at the 14 and Under and the Arlington Impact National-Kauffman at the 18 and Under.
Our Congratulations to all the Champions and all who came to the tournament this year.
We are particularly grateful to the Marymount University Softball team and their coaches who ran the press boxes, kept score and organized our participants. THANK YOU! Without your support we could not have run the tournament.

A year after the horrific events of September 11, 2001, where terrorists sought to cower the United States into submission that others could rule their lives, seven teams of 12 and 14 and under girls softball teams came together to play fastpitch softball. In the shadows of the still under rebuild Pentagon, these young ladies came to send a message to the world that America would not stay silent. Seven teams came from Virginia, New York and Pennsylvania to play. A number of the players on the team had lost family members in the attacks. As the Arlington Fire Chief Ed Plaugher noted 'what a wonderful way to celebrate the response of our First Responders to have such an event'. Those who play this year, send a message to those eighty young ladies who played that day that they come to honor their efforts and continue the tradition. We have been so fortunate to have the support of the County, the United States Army and the Federal Government. Here we have a photo of the second tournament, where the United States Chief Justice came to participate in support of his grand daughter who was playing.

What a great tournament with an incedible spirit and sportsmanship from all of the teams! Even through the unfortunate weather on Saturday, Sunday was some of the best tournament play we have seen in many years.
For the past several years the Tournament Comittee puts together a video retrospective on the weekend's events to capture the spirit of this tournament. This year's video is to the song: Fight Song by Rachel Platten.
