USA Softball, formally the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) has many important responsibilities as the national governing body of softball in the United States, including regulating competition to insure fairness and equal opportunity to the millions of players who annually play the sport.
When the ASA entered the softball picture in 1933, the sport was in a state of confusion, with no unified set of playing rules and no national governing body to provide guidance and stability. The ASA changed all that by adopting softball's first universally accepted rules of play and by organizing consistent and fair competition across the nation.
From the beginning, the ASA, now USA Softball has become one of the nation's largest and fastest growing sports organizations and now sanctions competition in every state through a network of over 90 state and metro associations.
USA Softball has grown from a few hundred teams in the early days to over 230,000 teams and 42,000 umpires representing a membership of more than four million.
