September 1, 2022 – The Alliance Fastpitch announces the 2023 Alliance Super Cup Series presented by EvoShield. The Super Cup Series is an ongoing, three stage event series that rewards teams for their performance in each event. The Alliance Fastpitch launched the Super Cup Series in 2022 as an effort to create year-round competitive and purposeful opportunities in each region with a culminating national event. 


This year, we have expanded the events in Stage I and Stage II to allow more regional opportunities for teams in all eight leagues. All events are divided by their Super Cup Region (West, Central, East). Teams will compete in their respective region for all rounds. The Super Cup Series is for teams in the 14U, 16U and 18U age divisions. 


Stage ISurvive & Advance. Teams earn a berth to Stage I based on their previous season finish at summer National Championships. During Stage I, teams will compete in round robin pool play.

2022 Super Cup Results:

Last year, we hosted three Stage I events and three Stage II events with the top 8 teams from each age division – 14U, 16U, and 18U – advancing to the Stage III Championship Round in Aurora, Colorado hosted by Triple Crown Sports during their 4th of July tournament. At the end, we crowned the Texas Bombers Gold as the 18U Champion, Impact Gold Jazz as the 16U Champion, and Athletics Mercado Tidd as the 14U Champion.
