In fall of 2019, we lost a pillar of our community, Deputy Jake Allmendinger. We dedicated the 2020 Kick Off proceeds to Jake's memory, but it was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to honoring Jake's memory, and we are dedicating the 2021 Kick Off Tourney proceed portion to Jake's family. You can also donate to Jake's family, by supporting the Jake Allmendinger Family Fund

The Kickoff tournament is a memorial and celebration of the lives of all GVSA players, volunteers, and umpires who we lost during the previous year. If you have a GVSA member who you'd like to commemorate, please email us at
