​Rich in History... Our Message

Marty & Cyd Cooper of Nationally recognized Gold Coast Hurricanes are excited to share the NEWS with you. We have regained 100% Ownership of our Original Rising Stars Showcase Tournament.

Welcome back to Softball Events that truly care about your experience. Welcome back to the good old -fashioned way of actually "hosting" an event. Marty & Cyd Cooper were pioneers 23 years ago when they founded and created The Original Rising Stars Tournament. Every Team became "FRIENDS" and College Coaches were treated like Royalty, with complimentary gourmet catered meals, discounted resort hotel rooms, detailed player profile notebooks and were shuttled from field to field. We are taking action to bring back the personal connection by recreating that experience. It is with heartfelt appreciation and excitement that we welcome you " Back to the Future".

We offer a better solution to over sized tournaments with too many teams, fields too far apart and not enough game time to play, along with College Coaches who struggle to find you.

At other tournaments that have shorter game times and drop dead rules you may only play 20 innings total... At our Tournaments, we offer 2 hour game times/7 innings = 35 innings
