USA Softball of Florida (formerly the Florida Amateur Softball Association) is proud to be one of 70 local affiliates for USA Softball. Founded in 1933 as the Amateur Softball Association, USA Softball is the National Governing Body of Softball in the Unites States, so declared by the United States Olympic Committee in 1978.


The objectives of USA Softball of Florida shall be:

  • To promote and regulate amateur softball for all persons regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin or ancestry.
  • To establish uniform softball rules and regulations.
  • To provide it with proper safeguards in accordance with the spirit of true sportsmanship.
  • To encourage the union of all eligible teams, organizations, or groups into such separate associations with active membership and representation in USAFL as may from time to time be deemed best adapted to advance the cause of amateur softball.
  • To establish and maintain by allied membership, alliances with associations devoted wholly or partially to the promotion of the game of amateur softball.
  • To promote and conduct annual amateur softball championships.
  • To educate and train in the proper skills of amateur softball play and rules of the game through promoting, organizing, and conducting clinics, seminars, and training courses.

Through our partnership with The Independence Fund, we are on a mission to mobilize wounded veterans. Help us raise money to deliver customized all-terrain mobility devices to our nation’s heroes – and help them regain their independence.

As the National Governing Body of softball, USA Softball - and, therefore, USA Softball of Florida - will be working with SafeSport in an effort to ensure safe environment for all who participate in our program. Officials in our state association as well as all ACE program coaches will have to earn SafeSport certification in 2018.
