The Castle Rock Middle School Field will be home to JAL XII. CRMS Field (which hosted JAL X) was selected because it accommodates the league’s objective to use 2 fields for the tournament. Yes, for the first time ever, 2 separate playing fields will be used in a JAL tournament.
As the league continues to grow in size, so too does the playing sites. With 2 fields, 2 games will be able to be played at the same time. A few different sites were considered, but ultimately the CRMS Field stood out as the best option.
As for future tournament locations, league officials have been bouncing around a few different ideas that would be great to get feedback on. These ideas include: Having the first ever indoor tournament (in a gym), playing somewhere outside of Castle Rock, playing on a hard surface (like pavement or dirt)
Additionally, the JAL XII schedule has been finalized, but will not be released for another week or so.
