We hope you had a great finish to the summer season. Tryouts are happening and plans for the next season are underway. We would appreciate an email from you if you have a player that made a connection that started at Pennsbury and ended in a commitment, we love to hear those stories.
We would like to thank our friends for the use of their facilities- Joe Garvey and Newtown Rock Gold, Joelle Hansberry and Ewing Edge, Bill Coblentz and Veterans Park, PAA and Lower Makefield Township for Pennsbury sites.
From our family to yours, have a wonderful finish to 2023 !.

We are currently registering college coaches and posting their information on the Attending College Coaches webpage. If any player on your team is interested in a particular college, they can check the 2022 Attending College Coaches webpage to see if that coach will be present.
We have informed college coaches that player profiles have been made available on the Pennsbury website, and their response has been overwhelmingly positive. Despite this, some attending teams have yet to send us links to their player rosters. We are excited to share this wonderful news about the coaches, and we encourage you to spread the word.

This year we have added player profiles to the tournament website, making it easy for you to access information. In mid-May, we will post the schedules, which will include times and player profiles. We hope you are well and looking forward to joining us on one of the fields. If you are a college coach, please click on the “College Coach Registration Form” below to register for the Pennsbury Tournament. Have a great day! Les and Joe.
The NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association) recently awarded the Pennsbury Inviational Tournament and Pennsbury Gems for providing a 40-year commitment to women-student athletes. Accepting the award Les Venella and Joe Parell, both Les and Joe have been managing the Pennsbury Invitational Tournament since 2001.
The Gems are an incredibly successful and highly-regarded softball team in the Pennsbury Tournament Softball league. Their impressive legacy can be traced back to 1981 when Art Coleman founded the Pennsbury Panthers softball team. As the team’s popularity and success grew, Coleman decided to expand and create a 15-U team, which he named the Gems. The Gems quickly became known for their talent and skill, and were envied by other teams in the league. As the years passed, the Gems continued to attract top-level players and improve their performance. When the 15-U players eventually progressed to the 18-U team, they decided to hold onto the Gems name as a symbol of excellence and tradition. It is a testament to the team’s hard work and determination that they have maintained this successful legacy for so many years.
