When Roane County had a Dixie Youth tournament in the past it proved a boon for local businesses.
The Roane Alliance Chief Executive Officer Leslie Henderson believes the economic impact for this summer’s tournament in Rockwood could be close to $250,000.
“It is very exciting,” Henderson said.
Pam May, director of tourism and marketing at The Roane Alliance, did the math.
Fifteen out-of-town teams will visit Rockwood for the Dixie Youth tournament for 7 and 8 year olds.
