Each spring RACVB gears up for the "busy season" of welcoming amateur sports tournaments to the region. The Rockford Region has long been known as a leader in the amateur sports market. Tournaments and championships at Sportscore One and Two generate more than $15 million for our local economy each year and produce nearly $2 million in tax revenue for local municipalities. Amateur sports mean big business. That's why it's important to properly welcome these groups and their attendees.
