About the League

The North Carolina Softball League was organized in 2013 to promote a friendly, competitive and emotionally-safe environment for LGBTQ and allies in Raleigh, Durham, and surrounding areas to participate in the sport of softball. While we realize many opportunities exist outside of this league for softball play, our league exists as our special place, affording opportunities to us as a group that aren’t available elsewhere. Our goal as a league is to promote sportspersonship, tolerance and acceptance of gay and lesbian men and women as well as those in our community who are friendly and supportive of our ideals.

Spring 2014 was our first season of play, and by fall 2014, we had more than doubled in size. Every season since has been bigger than the last, and we are excited to continue to grow our league! All games are played in Raleigh, North Carolina (and surrounding areas, as warranted by field availability) We look forward to having you play in our league!
