  • 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.
