Alliance Fastpitch Membership
Join the Movement
Welcome to the Alliance Fastpitch, where collaboration and celebrating the athlete are the heart of our story. Our official launch in Summer 2020 ignited a revolutionary approach to youth fastpitch. Together, we have established a clear pathway to play in our sport through our regional Member Leagues, a true National Championship experience for 18U to 10U athletes, and we have brought together the best resources in the game. Along the way, we have recognized thousands of players, crowned Championships, and shared memories!
This 2023 - 2024 Season, we invite you along the journey! Join the Alliance Fastpitch and reap the benefits of community and access all year round. The Alliance Fastpitch is the pathway to play and the pathway to develop in youth softball.
Alliance Fastpitch Membership is an annual membership for teams, coaches, and athletes. Teams - from 18U to 10U – can join one of our nine (9) regional Member Leagues based on their geographic location. All Member Leagues offer a League Schedule that consists of existing tournaments hosted by various event hosts and sanctioning bodies in their region. Visit League Schedule and Event Type to know whether that tournament is a points event, stats only event, or Qualifier.
Annual Membership for athletes and coaches includes benefits on and off the field. Participant insurance is included in an athlete's membership and once a team has a minimum of nine players registered, then that team can receive their Certificate of Insurance that's accepted at all League and National events.
Team profiles, athlete profiles, and coach profiles are all included with your annual membership!

Why The Alliance
The Future Of Fastpitch
The Alliance Fastpitch was founded in 2020 as a united effort to challenge the status quo of youth fastpitch. Our founders had a vision to unite our efforts in growing the game and improving the athlete experience. Our sport needed an alliance of people working together with an athlete-centric approach.
In order to grow and to better serve fastpitch athletes, it was important that every region of the country was represented. Youth softball clubs and organizations play an important role in our sport and have a direct impact on our athletes and youth softball families. Alliance Member Leagues unite these organizations at a regional level and the Alliance Fastpitch unites all softball clubs and teams at a national level. It is important that teams from across the country have a voice with the Alliance Fastpitch.
As a result of this grassroots collaboration and innovation driven by youth fastpitch leaders around the country, the Alliance Fastpitch has quickly grown to national prominence – and ultimately to be the top level of competition and player development in youth softball. The AFCS is the premier National Championship in youth softball. The best teams and the best players compete for a National Title in a format that emulates College Softball and a format that produces the best Champion in each age division and Tier.
Alliance Fastpitch is re-shaping amateur softball into One National League System with a unified structure and mission. The Alliance Fastpitch league system offers a defined pathway to play on the field and collaborative resources off the field.
In three seasons, the Alliance Fastpitch has served over 3,000 teams, 5,000 youth coaches, and over 35,000 youth softball players and families. The Alliance Fastpitch started with six Member Leagues in the 2021 Season and enters the 2024 Season with nine regional Member Leagues.
And that's only the beginning! Be a part of our story and the future of fastpitch.
