2021 ASANA Softball World Series: September 21 - 26

The ASANA Softball World Series will bring over 1,500 athletes, coaches and fans to play ball and celebrate equality one game at a time! Join us in Virginia Beach for a great week of softball and community!

Important note: We understand that some players may not have the ability to qualify via your local leagues as they normally would due to a variety of issues (local COVID positive rates, financial, health, etc). For the 2021 World Series ONLY, the ASANA Board has decided that all players who have qualified via a local league in 2018, 2019, 2020 or 2021 will be eligible for play. Local commissioners must still verify their rating. We hope this will enable us to welcome as much of our ASANA family back on the field as we can.
