The Collegiate Fastpitch Series (CFS), powered by Athletx Sports Group, is the perfect way to keep your game sharp over the summer without having to commit to multiple weeks of action, therefore safeguarding your health & still giving you time to experience key internships and/or fulfill other degree pursuits.
The Collegiate Fastpitch Series will take place in late June in Round Rock, Texas & late July in Elizabethtown, Kentucky & features a minimum of eight games over five days for each team. Every squad will include student-athletes from schools across the nation & be led by high-level prep coaches who will interface with your college coach to understand your playing goals or any performance limitations during the summer. Student-athletes are welcome to register for one or both events.
Athletx Sports Group puts on hundreds of youth softball & baseball events around the nation every year. The Collegiate Fastpitch Series will take place in conjunction with the Youth Softball Nationals in Texas & in conjunction with the Softball Youth All-American Games in Kentucky. Both youth events will feature hundreds of youth players who will be excited to check out collegiate action in the same complex where their games take place! Student-athletes participating in the Collegiate Fastpitch Series will be required to assist with the youth camp on Day 3 of the event. (see the same player schedule below)

All student-athletes participating in the Collegiate Fastpitch Series are required to help with a three-hour youth camp with youth players from the adjoining event (Youth Softball Nationals in Texas or Softball Youth All-American Games in Kentucky). The structure of the camp will be very similar to ones you’ve likely helped with back on campus & is a great opportunity to connect with younger players who want to be in your shoes playing college ball one day.
