Its goal from the time of inception is to promote the game of softball to Israelis and to play organized games in all part of the country. Men’s and Women’s fastpitch softball is played on a yearly basis and the increasing numbers in schools and outside have put softball in the top list of Israeli sports.
The Israel Softball Association has been a member of the European Softball Federation as well as the World Baseball Softball Confederation for the past twenty-one years. The ISA’s national teams have participated in numerous international tournaments and championships.
