Welcome to the USA Softball National Championships Section!
Annually USA Softball conducts over 100 National Championships in each of its major disciplines of the sport - slow, fast and modified pitch. Since each competitor must earn their berth into a USA Softball national through a network of qualifying tournaments conducted throughout the season, the champion goes home as the unchallenged best team in the nation for their respected division each year.
Qualifying for USA Softball National Championships begin at the local level with league championships, state championships and eventually national qualifiers. Each year over 30,000 players qualify to compete in a USA Softball National Championship. Cities from across America annually bid for these celebrated events, largely because of the economic impact they will make on their communities.
