ASA/USA Softball launches Legacy Club program to support National teams


OKLAHOMA CITY - The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) of America and USA Softball announced today the creation of the ASA/USA Softball Legacy Club, the official booster club of USA Softball. The program, designed to generate financial support for all USA Softball National Teams, has been organized to support and promote all athletes who don the Red, White and Blue. An effort to connect alumni, staff, fans and donors, the Legacy Club's emphasis is simple; to make sure the legacy continues for future generations.   

 

“The USA Softball Legacy Club is an exciting new program,” said ASA/USA Softball Executive Director Craig Cress. “As the National Governing Body of softball, the Amateur Softball Association is responsible for training, equipping and promoting all of the USA Softball National Teams for international and domestic competitions. The money generated through this program, as well as others like the USA Softball Ambassador Program, help us to do just that. We have built a reputation as being highly successful in international play and support we get from the advocates of our program help keep that reputation intact.”

Launched January 1, the USA Softball Legacy Club has already generated over $30,000 with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly towards the USA Softball National Team programs. Money generated will be used to support the costs of training teams for international play and travel to those competitions.  Depending on levels of support, members receive different benefits that are only available to via the USA Softball Legacy Club.  

 

Along with the financial support that the USA Softball Legacy Club generates, it is also provides an opportunity to unite alumni of the program. Every athlete who has ever worn the USA Softball uniform in a World Championship, World Cup, Pan American Games, Olympics or Border Battle event is automatically a member of the group. Future plans include alumni gatherings, events, camps and clinics across the country.

 

Depending on the level of contribution, members receive benefits including autographed team posters, exclusive t-shirts and polo’s, autographed replica jerseys and even a trip to an international event with one of the USA Softball National Teams.
