Leagues sanctioned by the Amateur Softball Association are available for three seasons per year. These are Spring (February-May), Summer (May-July), and Fall (August-October). Leagues consist of three divisions: Men’s, Coed, and Men’s Church. Various skill levels (lowest to highest) are Recreational, A, and AA. Minimum age requirement is 15 years.
As a result of its bat testing and certification program, the Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) has published a list of bats (containing an ASA certification mark) that are eligible for use in sanctioned play. Click here for approved bats. Scroll down and then click the red “go” button in the bats category, then click the red “go” button again under "display all" so you can display all approved bats or display approved bats by manufacturer. Also listed are several bats containing an ASA certification mark that are no longer eligible for use in sanctioned play.
