OUR PURPOSE

To be a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of amateur sports competition, particularly softball, for all persons regardless of age, sexual orientation or preference – with special emphasis on the participation of members of the Gay Community – and to otherwise foster national and international sports competition by planning, promoting and carrying out amateur sports competition.

OUR ORGANIZATION

NAGAAA is the member-driven managing organization that coordinates the highest level of international competitive LGBT softball. NAGAAA sets the standards for fair play, supports local leagues with understanding and executing those standards and ensures accountability and compliance with the standards during sponsored athletic competitions.

NAGAAA COUNCIL

NAGAAA has a governing Council comprised of one Delegate from each of the Member City Leagues. It is the role of the Council to hear and debate issues that may impact international competition, fair play standards or NAGAAA’s perceived value to its members. The Council has the power to set direction, create change and impact the organization; therefore, each Member City League – through their representative Delegate on the Council – has a voice. You may find the current NAGAAA Delegates here.

NAGAAA BOARD

NAGAAA also has a Board of Directors made of six (6) unpaid, elected individuals. The NAGAAA Board is an administrative group responsible to the Council. The Board provides information, participates in discussions and ultimately is tasked with executing the ideas, decisions and goals of the Council. You may find the current NAGAAA Board Members here.

NAGAAA COMMITTEES

To assist in accomplishing the work of the organization, NAGAAA has nine (9) committees. Anyone individual who is part of a Member City League and attends the NAGAAA Summer or Winter meetings may participate in the NAGAAA Committees. The Committees are chaired by representatives from Member City Leagues, some of whom are also Delegates. Committee Chairs, their members and the NAGAAA Council determine the agenda of the Committees, and therefore, the focus of NAGAAA’s work. A complete list of current Committees and their Chairs may be found here.

NAGAAA is made up of people you know, people you have faced on the ball field, people you have worked with in your own local leagues. Our leadership comes from you. You drive the organization with your voice locally and through your Delegate internationally. NAGAAA is NOT a group of anonymous faces. NAGAAA is you. NAGAAA is me.
