The Alliance Fastpitch Championship Series

The AFCS is the culminating event for the top teams in each Member League. A true National Championship Series designed to mimic the NCAA Post Season and name a National Champion at each age level and Tier. Teams must earn a Tier I or Tier II berth to the AFCS through League Championship and Qualifying Events.

Where will the AFCS be hosted?

The Alliance Fastpitch will utilize Triple Crown Sports (TCS), USA Softball, and USSSA to execute each AFCS. Host sites for each age division will rotate locations (West, Central, East) through the various partners each year.

How do teams qualify for the AFCS?

Teams will have to earn their way to the AFCS through League play in one of our Member Leagues 

Teams qualify for the AFCS by earning a berth through their League Championship or AFCS Qualifying events.

Teams accrue points in their League season by playing in League events which are made up of existing events from various hosts including TCS, USA Softball, USSSA and unsanctioned events. Earned points from League events will seed teams into League Championships. Read more about Point Calculations HERE.

The League Championship and Qualifying events are listed below as well as how many Tier I and Tier II berths are available at each event. If you have questions about your League Championship events and berths, please contact your League Administrator.

**Note: Teams who earned a Tier II berth in the Fall may still try and qualify for a Tier I berth in the Spring or Summer.
