With the demand at an all-time high for the Top Gun Invitational, Top Gun Events added the Viper Division in 2019. Teams chosen for the Viper Division not only got to play against great competition but could also earn a spot into the following years' Top Gun Invitational Maverick division. 1 berth per division is up for grabs and will go to the bracket winner of the Viper Division. The Viper division is played alongside the Maverick Division at Blue Valley Rec in Overland Park, KS.
The Kansas City and surrounding area’s softball community is comprised of a very passionate group of athletes, coaches, and parents. The support that this community gives to the game of softball is awe inspiring. We are home to Olympian Christi Ambrosi, and the commissioner of the NPF (National Professional Fastpitch Association) Cheri Kempf. With all of this in mind, we have developed the Top Gun Invitational to showcase the best of the best in the United States. At last year's Top Gun Invitational, we brought in 219 teams from 17 states & had over 160 College Coaches attend the event.
The central location of Kansas City allows teams, from the North, South, East, and West, to meet in a neutral location and compete against the best. We have identified top level teams in a quest to bring them together to showcase their talent in a truly competitive environment. The teams invited to this tournament have consistently performed at the national level. This tournament will be a College Level Showcase. We at Top Gun Events are excited about hosting this elite level event.
