Best of Ohio uses Wright State a lot. Has attracted very competitive teams in the 15U, 16U level. Run well, At least I have never had any problems.

Action Sports Center runs good tourneys was destroyed a couple of Springs ago by a tornado and is till getting back on its feet. Has two fields with turf. Runs good tourneys with travel and community level teams.

Pastime Tournaments runs some good ones with college fields in SWO.
