OKLAHOMA CITY — USA Softball, the National Governing Body of Softball in the United States, is proud to announce the addition of SportsEngine as the Exclusive Club Management Technology Provider for USA Softball’s grassroots programs.

“We look forward to introducing SportsEngine’s league and team management services to USA Softball’s membership,” said USA Softball Executive Director, Craig Cress. “This partnership allows us to provide our membership with affordable and easy-to-use technology in an ever-increasing digital age.  The features that teams, parents, leagues and fans will experience through SportsEngine’s platform are second-to-none.”
