ASA has made an investment in the future of softball with its ever growing Junior Olympic program. Each year, more than one million boys and girls across the country play ASA Junior Olympic softball.

This program helps develop interest, skills and desire in a new generation of softball players - the ideals needed for these young people to excel individually and, ultimately, ensure the continued growth of the sport. 
The Junior Olympic program emphasizes fun and provides for a great exchange of fellowship, sportsmanship and an all-important feeling of belonging and being a part of something worthwhile.

 Play is divided into five divisions: 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U  Slow Pitch and Fast Pitch Divisions, offered for both boys and girls.
