We are affiliated with the Amateur Softball Association of America, an organization that governs the sport for men and women of all ages. We play games between Piedmont teams and other communities affiliated with ASA such as teams from Oakland and Alameda.
The Amateur Softball Association (ASA), a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization based in Oklahoma City, OK, was founded in 1933 and has evolved into the strongest softball organization in the country. The growth and development of the association led the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to name the ASA the National Governing Body of Softball, pursuant to the Amateur Sports Act of 1978.
The 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 player who annually play the sport.
The ASA has become one of the nation's largest and fastest growing sports organizations and now sanctions competition in every state through a network of 93 state and metro associations. The ASA has grown from a few hundred teams in the early days to over 250,000 teams today, representing a membership of more than four million.
