In 2006, Little League International introduced the Softball Day initiative to help promote Little League Softball, the college softball experience and the game in general. It is on this day that softball players of all ages will get to experience exceptional softball, support the local college or university athletics, discover positive role models and create their own goals. We also hope these events will create an on-going relationship between the colleges and universities and our local Little League Softball programs.
Little League International coordinates 25-30 Little League Softball Days across the country every year and many more are organized by local league and district administrators with programs at all levels. If you would like to organize a Little League Softball Day with your area college or university, email Sara at sthompson@LittleLeague.org for more information or customize the resources below to connect with the local university athletic marketing department.

2014 Little League Softball Days
“Northern Illinois University was so happy that we approached them about Little League Softball Days that they have agreed to let us host the Illinois State Junior All-Star Tournament at their facility. They have just undergone a $50K renovation and the field is immaculate. This should be a great experience for all involved." -Aaron Kelly, IL Dist. 13, Softball ADA
“Our Lightning Bolt minor team went last year and the girls had an awesome time with the Chico State ladies. They graciously signed team posters they gave to the Little Leaguers and just hung out with them before the game to talk softball. It instantly gave them a connection and they cheered their hearts out for their favorite players. My daughter still has her poster hanging in her room and can't wait for this year.” -Shawn Heyl (Little League Softball parent)
