Coaches, industry leaders, and former players have come together to form The Alliance Fastpitch with a goal of driving value to the player and player experience.
One of the first things The Alliance Fastpitch has done is to align the recently announced regional youth leagues: California Fastpitch League, Gulf Coast Fastpitch League, Heart of America Fastpitch League, Rocky Mountain Fastpitch League, Southeastern Fastpitch League, and the Texas Fastpitch League.
Aligning at the highest level of play in youth softball creates an organized infrastructure for stats, points, and a defined road to the postseason. Additionally, aligning at this level will help unite top coaches and athletes while also connecting the generations of alumni from each club.
The vision for The Alliance is to bring unity across the sport for the betterment of the athletes and the growth of fastpitch. This includes youth athletes, college athletes, professional athletes, and retired athletes.
Each Regional League is in the process of creating youth athlete advisory councils to empower the voice of the athlete and help connect the youth to the current and former professional athletes. Alliance members will have access to a network that wants to work together and build something special for the athlete and game.
By working together and bringing everyone’s strengths to the table, The Alliance is leading the way in uniting the sport in a way that has yet to be done.
