National non-profit organization moving to Louisville

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A national non-profit organization representing collegiate and club softball coaches is relocating its headquarters to Louisville.

The National Fast Pitch Coaches Association takes over the Crescent Hill Woman's Club Building on Grinstead Drive and will create jobs.

The NFCA said it aims to educate coaches and the public about the game of softball.

Mayor Greg Fischer said the addition only enhances Louisville's reputation as a great sports town, "So people when they think of Louisville...one of the things they think of is sports. So the national fast pitch coaches are going to find Louisville to be a perfect home. I know we're tying in with the University of Louisville...so you already know our reputation."

To encourage the move and the jobs it brings the state approved tax incentives up to $240,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment Program.
