The Wisconsin Amateur Softball Association (WASA) is an affiliation of the Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA), the national governing body of softball. We are one of over 88 metro/state associations in the United States. The WASA covers all 72 counties in the state of Wisconsin.
The volunteer board of the WASA is dedicated and committed to the game of softball – both youth and adult and for men and women.
The Amateur Softball Association (ASA), a volunteer driven, not-for-profit organization based in Oklahoma City, OK, was founded in 1933 and has evolved into the strongest softball organization in the country. The growth and development of the association led the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to name the ASA the National Governing Body of Softball, pursuant to the Amateur Sports Act of 1978.
