LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Visit St. Pete/ClearwaterVisit St. Pete/Clearwater (VSPC) has renewed as an NFCA Official Sponsor, the Association announced on Wednesday. VSPC continues as the lead sponsor of the NFCA’s annual print and digital calendars.

“We are pleased to have Visit St. Pete/Clearwater renew their official sponsorship,” said NFCA Executive Director Carol Bruggeman. “The St. Pete/Clearwater area provides a first-class destination for softball coaches, players, and fans. There is no doubt softball teams enjoy competing in the warm Florida weather, however it’s the hospitality of the St. Pete/Clearwater staff that keeps them coming back. VSPC offers a high-quality experience both on and off the softball field. Additionally, the NFCA has hosted various well-attended divisional Leadoff tournaments in the St. Pete/Clearwater region and will host the 2025 Division I Leadoff in February. Caleb Peterson and the entire VSPC staff are committed to serving the softball community with excellence.”

Each year, NFCA members receive access to both a digital calendar and printed calendar. The digital calendar allows coaches to have important Association dates and deadlines (awards, championships, clinics, camps and Convention) in the palm of their hands. The print version highlights member coaches from all divisions across the country with images submitted by member institutions.

The 2025 NFCA Division I Leadoff Classic heads back to the Eddie C. Moore Complex for the third consecutive year and seventh time overall. The 22nd edition of the tournament will be held Feb. 6-9 with the entire field and schedule announced in September.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the National Fastpitch Coaches Association,” said Visit St. Pete-Clearwater Senior Manager Caleb Peterson. “VSPC believes in the impact that NFCA makes on the sport of fastpitch softball and the development of young, competitive athletes. We are excited to showcase our award-winning destination to the NFCA membership and event portfolio.”
