33RD MILITARY BAND-AID SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT

The Military Band-Aid Softball Tournament is the second largest military softball tournament in the world, and is hosted in the beautiful city of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Being ranked as one of the top three military towns as well as being centrally located within the continental United States, it is just a natural fit for the tournament to continuously be hosted within the city.

The tournament was created specifically for medical personnel within the various military branches and was very successful and continuously grew year after year. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s participation in the tournament had begun to decrease due to increased deployments of military personnel and the decrease in participation led to the invitation of first responders in 2003 which incorporated security forces and firefighters. In 2007 the tournament was finally opened to all military varsity teams, and was the turning point of the tournament.

HISTORY

The inaugural Band-Aid Tournament was held at the United States Air Force Academy in 1989. It was the idea of the late Clyde Maddox and Dave Miles, both of which were medics at the 10th Medical Group, USAFA. They wanted to have a tournament that was specifically for medical personnel, hoping to attract medical teams from around the country. Their idea was to provide an opportunity to play a lot of softball at a cheep price, they also wanted the tournament to be competitive in nature, and most importantly have fun. It was a huge success for many years under that format. However, in the late 1990’s/early 2000’s, participation started to decrease due to the increased deployments of medical personnel. That led us to to extend our invitation to “First Responders” incorporating Security Forces and Fighfighers in 2003. In 2006, we had Military Varsity teams from around the country calling to ask if they could participate in out tournament. In 2007, we decided to try it and we haven’t looked back. The Band-Aid tournament has evolved into one of the biggest and best military tournaments in the nation. The 2023 Band-Aid hosted over 90 team which was second to only the USSA Military World tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Many of the Military Varsity coaches regard the Band-Aid tournament as the “Pre-World Tournament.” It is without a doubt, one of the premier military tournaments in the country.
