An invitation to the World Series in Florida is a great honor awarded to only the top teams in the Nation and the team is honored to be able to represent West Texas at an event of this magnitude. The World Series will be held at the ESPN World Wide of Sports Complex in Kissimmee Florida and will be nationally televised. The team will also get free admittance to Disney World for receiving an invitation to the World Series! We are eagerly looking forward to these games and have been training for quite some time to prepare for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
As you can imagine, the cost of competing in the World Series is overwhelming, so your support for the athletes in your local community would mean so much to our team. In order to make it to Florida, our team must raise a large amount of money to fund the trip and pay for items such as airfare, hotel, tournament fees, and entry fees just to name a few. For those wishing to help the Cyclones get to Florida, Donations can also be made at any City Bank location in Lubbock to the team account under the name West Texas Cyclones or to our GoFundMe account under West Texas Cyclones- World Series.
Checks can also be mailed to:
