    Suncoast Softball League

    The Suncoast Softball League was organized in 1993 to promote a friendly, competitive and emotionally safe environment for gay men and women in the Tampa Bay area to participate in the sport of softball. Our goal as a league is to promote sportsmanship, tolerance and acceptance of LGBTQ persons as well as those in our community who are friendly and supportive of our ideals.

    Join Tampa Bay's Largest LGBTQIA+ Sports & Social Organization!

    The Suncoast Softball League, Tampa Bay's largest LGBTQIA+ sports & social organization, will begin it's 29th year of play in September. We're open to adults of all skill levels who are interested is playing some ball in a friendly, self-affirming space. 

    The first step to joining is attending a New Player Skills Assessment Clinic where we'll put prospective members through a series of drills to determine what level of play you'll start in. Players are assigned divisions so they compete with like-skilled players for safety reasons. We currently field teams in 3 divisions, from beginning to more advanced.

    You'll hit, run, field and throw. It's that easy. You'll want to bring a glove and (plastic only) cleats if you have them. They make running on the dirt much easier. We have plenty of balls and bats.

    Below you'll find a sign-up form and waiver required by the cities we play in (Tampa and St. Petersburg). Our next NPSAC will be in 2022.  Check back for dates after New Years.

    If you have any questions, contact our commissioner Thomas Skiles.
