April | Letter from USA Softball President John Gouveia

May 01, 2018, 9:49 a.m. (ET)
The USA Softball Board of Directors held its Spring Meeting during the month of April. A number of items were discussed and included several action items so please check the portal for the minutes of the meeting as they become available. Should you have any questions or simply wish to have more information on any items that are contained in the minutes, please contact your Regional Vice President. They are your representatives on the Board of Directors, and each was present at the Board Meeting. 

Like many of you, USA Softball of Northern California is preparing for Championship Play. Our Association events as well as our Western Nationals are active on Tournament USA Softball. Please take a moment to check the site and make sure your events are posted as well. Our teams, especially our youth teams, look there for events and if they can't find you they will go elsewhere!

A number of our National Teams will be competing this summer from June through August. Let’s support our National Teams as they represent us and the United States at world events such as the USA Softball International Cup in Irvine, Calif., the World Championships (Women’s National Team in Chiba, Japan and Junior Men’s National Team in Prince Albert, Canada), the Border Battle in Canada where our Men's and Women's Slowpitch will compete, plus additional events and training opportunities as they prepare for a great season ahead. These world class athletes deserve our support and whether you are able to watch them or support their dreams financially through the Legacy Club, we’re all behind Team USA. Please visit our website at www.usasoftball.com for complete schedules of our National Teams. Our sponsors, both locally as well as nationally, are very important to our success, so let’s show our gratitude for their support by using their products whenever possible this season!

Great job and best of luck to all of you as you continue to plan and organize another great season of softball!
