Coming to your Anchorage Middle Schools in Spring 2019!

General Information

In collaboration with the Anchorage School District (ASD) and American Legion Baseball (ALB), the Anchorage Sports Association (ASA) is proud to announce that fastpitch softball and baseball will be offered to all Middle School students in Anchorage in the spring.

This program will be administered by ASA and ALB as an outsourced ASD sport. Student-athletes must follow all rules associated with participation in middle school activities, but the registration, fee collection, and scheduling will be done by ASA/ALB. Fastpitch softball will go through ASA and baseball will go through ALB.


Volunteer Coaches Needed

In order for this program to be a success, we will need enthusiastic coaches to commit to running our teams!

Interested coaches should be:

  • Experienced working with middle school students.
  • Enthusiastic for teaching team sports to kids, not just the skills of fastpitch but also the tenants of teamwork and leadership.
  • Familiar with the basic rules and concepts of fastpitch softball.
  • Available for practice times after school.
  • Available on Saturdays in April and May for games.
  • Effective communicators in working with ASA and ASD.
  • Able to pass a background check through USA Softball.

If you are interested in being a coach for one of our middle school teams, please fill out the registration form below.

Anchorage Sports will provide the necessary equipment for teams, as well as provide support for structuring team practice and teaching skills.


Anticipated Schedule & Locations

Practices will take place after school. All practices will take place at the teams' school.

Games will be played Saturdays on April 27, May 4, and May 18. Teams will participate in a total of 6 games.

Games will be held at the Chuck Albrecht Softball Complex (MLK Drive/Elmore).
