LOUISVILLE, Ky. —The National Fastpitch Coaches Association is pleased to announce it is continuing its relationship with Official Sponsor Triple Crown Sports (TCS). TCS has signed a multi-year deal and will continue to focus its efforts with the NFCA on enhancing the way in which players, parents and coaches gain information and valuable knowledge about the sport of softball.
"Triple Crown sets the standard when it comes to running quality softball events,” said NFCA Executive Director Carol Bruggeman. “As industry leaders they provide quality events for softball student-athletes, parents, travel ball coaches, and college coaches. Triple Crown is an innovative company, always looking for ways to improve and enhance its offerings. It has been a pleasure to work with Triple Crown on educational initiatives to help advance the sport of softball. The NFCA is very appreciative of their loyal support.”
As an official sponsor, TCS will use its website and social media presence to share the NFCA’s collection of educational information on the many facets of fastpitch. As part of this educational push, it continues to be the lead sponsor of NFCA “Tip Tuesdays” via social media and in the bi-monthly newsletter Fastpitch Connected.
“The NFCA is vital to the sport of fastpitch softball because of their continued desire to develop excellent coaches,” said TCS CEO Keri King. “Triple Crown Sports is excited to renew our three-year contract to support the sport we both love through 2022. Don’t tell Carol, but we will renew our contract forever because we see no end to their purpose of supporting fastpitch coaches.”
TCS also plays a prominent role at the NFCA’s National Convention, sponsoring the Rookie Orientation, which features a panel of veteran coaches, who take first-time attendees through the jam-packed schedule and highlights must-attend events.
“I love how the NFCA provides numerous educational and playing opportunities for coaches and teams through the Coaches Clinics, Convention and Leadoff Classic tournaments,” said Lynne Klingelsmith, TCS College Coach Director.
Additionally, the NFCA, through its partnership with Triple Crown provides access to national travel ball team rankings in multiple age groups on its website through US Club Rankings.
