The TC/USA Nationals debuted in 2012 in grand style with 60 teams. New York City played host to the inaugural gathering of the nation's top fastpitch teams (based on the US Club Rankings). In 2013, 120 teams battled for the TCS National Championship in Reno/Tahoe. In 2014, the Georgia towns of Cumming, Alpharetta and Gainesville near Atlanta hosted the TC/USA Nationals and welcomed 186 teams. In 2015, 184 teams went to Reno/Tahoe for the TC/USA Championships. In 2016, the top teams went back to NYC to compete and in 2017 TC partnered with The City of Austin, "The Live Music Capital of the World" for another successful TC/USA National event.
