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 national softball tournaments. Join us Memorial Day Weekend, May 25 & 26, 2019.

In order to accommodate the majority of teams while NAGAAA transitions to the new rating and divisional structure, the 2019 NSC will use 2018 player/team ratings and divisional structure guidelines.

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 2018 NAGAAA player/team rating and divisional structure guidelines.

  • C1 Division: No player rated over 14 with a team maximum of 135 
  • C2 Division: No player rated over 14 with a team maximum of 117
  • D Division: No player rated over 10 with a team maximum of 95

We will use 2018 ratings submitted to NAGAAA when verifying rosters... you should too. The tournament will consist of three divisions divided as outlined above; however, D Division may be split into two divisions depending if registration capacity is met. For more details around tournament rules, check out the information in the Tournament Details menu. 


Register by April 27, 2019 for the low early bird fee of only $375. Registration fee after April 27, 2019 is $400. Registration deadline is May 11, 2019. Players must be at minimum 18 years of age to register and play. For more registration information, including pick up players and registered teams by division, checkout the links in the Registration menu.

We look forward to seeing you at the Classic!
