2023 will mark the 12th year of the TC/USA Nationals event -- we are thrilled to announce our return to the fastpitch hotbed of north Atlanta in Cumming and Alpharetta, GA.
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 played host and welcomed 186 teams. In 2015, 184 teams went to Reno/Tahoe.
In 2016, the top teams went back to NYC to compete and in 2017 TC partnered with Austin, TX, "The Live Music Capital of the World" for another successful event. The 2018 and 2019 events were held in Alpharetta and Cumming, GA with the top 144 teams in the country. The 2020 TC/USA Nationals event took place regionally with elite brackets in Southeast Nationals (Georgia) and Southwest Nationals (Texas). Triple Crown then headed west for the 2021 and 2022 events, with the action taking place in and around Riverside and Hemet, CA.
