Sports families rarely get a break during the school year and the summer isn't much different.

It takes planning, dedication and money if your kids have a desire to compete.

This summer around Sioux Falls is no different. Soccer, softball, golf and sports camps. Plus tournaments.

And the USA Softball Girl's Slow Pitch Nationals for girls 10U to 18U will be held in Watertown, SD July 28-30th.

Teams from South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and North Dakota will all be competing. Organizers have also had interest in teams from Washington and Pennsylvania.

If your kids team is planning to compete you better plan ahead for lodging.
