Quick Facts About USA Softball:
  • USA Softball was founded as the Amateur Softball Association in 1933 by Leo Fisher and Michael J. Pauley. Fischer and Pauley laid the foundation for softball's future by adopting a universal set of rules, setting the stage for what would become softball's national governing body.
  • USA Softball was named the National Governing Body of Softball (NGB) in the United States by the United States Olympic Committee in 1978.
  • USA Softball is the primary funding source and the pipeline to the USA Softball National teams programs! All six programs (Junior Women, Junior Men, Women, Men, Men's and Women's Slow Pitch) are still alive and well because of the efforts of USA Softball and keeping athletes wearing the Red, White and Blue is a top priority. We are the only softball association who supports this effort and provides financially to these teams and are the road to representing the United States internationally at the Pan American Games, World Championships and Olympic Games.
  • USA Softball continues to give back to athletes and coaches through the National Team Program. Our USA Softball athletes put on youth clinics, attend our JO USA Softball National Championships and participate on the National Council. Our National Team coaches also promote softball through National Coaching Schools and training camps for youth coaches and athletes.
  • USA Softball is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization which mean's our goal is not to make a profit. Every dollar generated from grassroots softball goes directly back into improving and furthering the sport.
Needs Your support provides our athletes with a top-tier experience that can’t be matched without the generous support of members like you.  From nutrition to assistance with travel and training, every dollar helps make a difference in the long-term success of our National Team Programs!  Help keep athletes in the Red, White and Blue.
CEO/Executive Director Statement A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, USA Softball is the National Governing Body (NGB) of Softball in the United States and has been providing softball programming in the United States since 1933. As the NGB, USA Softball is responsible for selecting and training U.S. National Teams to compete internationally, ranging from World Cups, the Pan American Games and even the Olympic Games. USA Softball continues to operate under limited funds, which provides an on-going challenge in our ability to field the best team possible and provide the best training we can for our athletes. It is imperative that we continue to give our athletes the opportunity to wear the Red, White and Blue, and represent the United States, while maintaining our international presence and lobbying for inclusion in future Olympic Programs is critical to our sport’s success. Your financial support will greatly assist with the costs associated with training, competitions and more.
