History

SOFTBALL CONFEDERATION ASIA

Between 1990 and 2002, major steps were taken by ASA-ASIA which saw the vast growth and rapid development of Softball in Asia. It saw the introduction of Softball as a competitive sport in the 1990 Beijing Asian Games, its retention in the 1994 Hiroshima Asian Games, the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games and the 2002 Busan Asian Games. Thereafter, ASA-Asia has not failed to host regular Asian Championships for Men and Women, and introduced the Asian Junior Men (19 & Under) Championship in 2000 and Junior Women (19 & Under) Championship in 2002 on an alternating basis. Asian members also played a vital role in the introduction of Women Softball competition in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. 3 Asian teams, that are, Japan, China and Chinese-Taipei qualified to compete as the world’s best at the Olympic Games. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Japan won the gold medal. At the 2002 16th ASA-Asia Congress in Shenzhen, China, members reviewed the organisation of ASA-Asia. In keeping with the changing world trend and the Olympic move to open the sport to all Softball participants, amateurs and professionals, and to reflect the consolidation of all federations/associations within Asia, was revamped and its name formally changed to Softball Confederation Asia. The SCA Constitution was also amended to bring on board both the ISF Vice Presidents (Asia) onto the SCA Executive Council as automatic At-Large Executive Council Members, for closer and synergetic cooperation of both ISF and SCA.
