VAA Slowpitch Softball


The Registration "VAA Slowpitch Softball" is not currently available.

Welcome to VAA Community Slowpitch Softball

Our slowpitch softball program is a wonderful opportunity for girls to learn how to play softball and develop their skills. This program is for girls in K through 12th grade. VAA Slowpitch Softball is a part of the South Metro League, which includes the communities of Apple Valley, Bloomington, Burnsville, Eagan, Prior Lake, and Rosemount.


As a community-run program,  we are entirely dependent on volunteers to make the season run smoothly and successfully.  Volunteering your time as a head coach, assistant coach, or even as a team manager is a great way to get involved with your children and the community! We would greatly appreciate you registering to volunteer. So as we prepare for 2023 please keep coaching in mind.
