Welcome to the North Star Classic

One of the Midwest's best softball tournaments!

The Twin Cities Goodtime Softball League (TCGSL) is proud to present the North Star Classic (NSC) tournament. It started in 1981 as a small local tournament hosted every other year and today it is celebrated as one of the Midwest's greatest international softball tournaments. Join us Memorial Day Weekend, May 23 & 24, 2020.

We would like to recognize the top 3 teams in each division and our Spirit Award winners. Haven't played yet, check out last year's winners. Click here.



We will follow the 2019 NAGAAA player/team rating and divisional structure guidelines.

  • C1 Division: No player rated over 15 with a team maximum of 140
  • C2 Division: No player rated over 15 with a team maximum of 125
  • D1 Division: No player rated over 12 with a team maximum of 110

We will use 2019 ratings submitted to NAGAAA when verifying rosters... you should too. For more details around tournament rules, check out the information in the Tournament Details menu.
