NAGAAAA Gay Softball World Series
Welcome to the official volunteer portal for the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA). Formed in 1977, NAGAAA is a 501c(3) international sports organization comprised of men and women dedicated to providing opportunity and access for the LGBT community to participate in organized softball competition in safe environments. Currently, more than 17,000 players from 46 cities across Canada and the United States participate in member leagues, and the best of these teams converge once a year for head-to-head competition at the annual Gay Softball World Series.
NAGAAA celebrated its 41st Anniversary (1977-2018) . For over four decades, NAGAAA has been a safe place for LGBT athletes to compete. Member cities compete in six divisions — A, B, C, D, Masters Classic and Masters Legends. If your city/league is interested in joining NAGAAA, please contact contact us to learn more.
For the first time in NAGAAA’s 42-year history, Tampa Bay will host the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance’s (NAGAAA) 2018 Gay Softball World Series (GSWS) from Sept. 3rd-8th and will showcase our region in ways that will leave a lasting impression and create treasured memories for all involved. We call on the support of the entire Greater Tampa Bay Community to host thousands of participants that will take part in the 2018 GSWS.
Over 200 of these teams with 5,000+ players and fans participate in NAGAAA GSWS annually, hosted in a different member city each year. While the primary focus of NAGAAA remains the organized athletic competition of gay softball, NAGAAA is also committed to helping the community. NAGAAA raises thousands of dollars through its annual fundraising event held each year during the Gay Softball World Series. The money raised will support various local HIV/AIDS organizations, as well as other local non-profits, in the Tampa Bay Area this year.
