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.
