Welcome to AFA Slow Pitch

We welcome you to the AFA Slow Pitch program and hope you will find the AFA style of softball to be the game your team is looking for. Our experienced staff has started developing the AFA game of slow pitch where other associations have left off. We feel that we have made great strides in improving the game.  Our rules committee feels they have developed the rules that will carry the game into the future. We feel we have designed this game of slow pitch to be the best game it can be. 

We are expanding AFA Slow Pitch across the USA.
If you would like to represent the AFA in your area or just play please contact us. 
The American Fastpitch Association or AFA, is a nonprofit corporation, under the direction of Ron Gossmer.
It was founded in Anaheim, CA in 1980 for the promotion of girls fast pitch softball. AFA added adult slow pitch in 2008, baseball in 2009 and senior slow pitch in 2012. The AFA is operated by a group of volunteers across the country and has no paid staff.

The AFA has held National and International Tournaments for over 20 years. Teams from 40 different states, Canada, Japan, and Taiwan have participated.

Over 10,000 girls that have played AFA have received college scholarships. Many have gone on to become college coaches,  play on the U.S. Olympic Softball team, or the Women's Professional Leagues.

The AFA is committed to working hard to provide an environment that produces positive experiences for players, coaches, parents, tournament directors and anyone else involved in the sport of softball and baseball.

Thank you for your support and participation in the AFA,
Ron Gossmer.
