The Board of Directors and the National Office in Oklahoma City has raised the cost of registering for the ASA program. While this is effective on January 1, 2016 your local Association, Sacramento ASA, will not be raising our fees for the upcoming 2016 year. We know how hard it is to raise money and provide the kind of softball services that you currently provide. Unfortunately these things are out of our local control but we are holding the line for the 2016 year.
If you have any questions please contact us at any time. In addition if you need softballs for the 2016 season our contract with Worth sports has been extended for an additional three years. We will continue to provide you with the best price possible on this critical need for your program. Hopefully you find this worthwhile and a large savings to your organization.

Considered one of the Big 5 of the National Tournaments
handed out by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) Sacramento was up against
some formidable competition in the voting for the ASA/USA 12 A National
Championships. Due to the way votes are calculated, and the Country is divided
by ASA, the majority of votes are held in the East and South Territories. Given
those circumstances it is very difficult to land an ASA/USA National
Championship on the West Coast.
It had been since 2005 that Sacramento ASA has had its turn
to bid on a USA/ASA National Championship. At that time Sacramento was up
against Montgomery, Alabama which has one of the finest softball facilities in
the Country and provides an outstanding breakfast for all the Council Members
on the day of the vote. At that time Sacramento won the tournament by 1 vote!
The tournament was the ASA/USA 12 A National Championship. As it turned out, we
were bidding for that same event in 2013. Read More.
