The Burlington economy will swing upward the week of July 17th when over 300 youth will converge on Burlington for the National AAU 13 & Under Baseball Championship at Springwood Park. The tournament will begin with opening ceremonies on Sunday afternoon at 3pm with games slated for Monday through Friday. Last year's tournament was held at Disney World.
Teams will travel from areas as far away as Lake Erie Pennsylvania, Illinois, Florida, Kentucky, Georgia, and Maryland. Each team will bring with them at least 15 players plus coaches and families all set to occupy hotel rooms and spend money throughout the week. Events such as these leave a positive impact on Alamance County's economy through sales tax as well as other purchases made throughout their stay.
The tournament is hosted by the City of Burlington Department of Recreation & Parks. For information please contact the Burlington Recreation & Parks Athletics Division at 336-222-5030
