Competitive Fastpitch - It's no secret that to get better, our teams need to play with and against the best players possible. Texas Fastpitch League is heavily supported by the top organizations in the state. For years teams have had to travel all over the United States to find competitive events. With TFL, these events are in our own backyard. With weekly games and a long list of local events, Texas Fastpitch League guarantees teams the ability to get better on a regualar basis without having to leave the region.
The Alliance Championship - Every year there is one event that is a true test of the best teams in the country where only 1 team claims victory and is crowned the #1 fastpitch team in the nation. Commonly referred to as a national championship, or nationals, there is always one event that the softball world considers being our "finals." The Alliance Championship is that event. The Alliance Championship event is composed of qualifiers from member leagues, like TFL, from all over the country. Every summer, those qualified teams have the honor to compete against each other for a shot at becoming the best of the best. The only way to be a part of this is by being a part of the Texas Fastpitch League.

- Step One: A Coach or Team Admin registers their team with a member league and pays team registration fee
- Step Two: Individual coaches and individual players (their parents) are invited to Join the League. All coaches and all players (via the parent first) register for the Member League. Alliance fee is paid individually by each coach and by each player
- Step Three: Once all athletes and coaches are registered and paid on a team, then The Alliance Fastpitch sends the info to USA Softball for the individual insurance and background checks. At this point, individuals will enjoy the benefits of being an Alliance Fastpitch member and will also receive their virtual ID card from USA Softball.
Teams that qualified in the fall are already qualified for The Alliance Championship. Other teams must earn berths given at qualifying TFL events. Click HERE to view our Path to AFCS.
