About Us : Our History
Created in 1977, the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance is a non-profit, international organization
comprised of men and women dedicated to promoting amateur athletics for the gay and lesbian community. NAGAAA
was formed to encourage the participation of gay and lesbians in organized softball competition.
In 2007, NAGAAA moved in a new direction forming two organizations. The women's division of NAGAAA became
Amateur Sports Alliance of North America (ASANA) and will continue to support the women's division and move
into new exciting directions.
Currently, 24 cities in the United States are members of ASANA. Teams representing these leagues participate
in the ASANA Softball World Series hosted each year in a different member city.
ASANA offers softball for the Women's Division. The Women's division has four divisions -- A, B, C, and D.
These division designations pertain to the competitive level of play, with "A" being the most skilled and the
"D" supporting the more recreational levels of play.
