About ECSA

For over 40+ years, Seattle’s Emerald City Softball Association is the Pacific Northwest’s largest softball organization geared to LGBTQIA+ and non-LGBTQIA+ individuals.

The ECSA Open Division is proud to feature over 30+ teams in the A/B, C, D, and E Divisions. Regular season games are played on Sundays, April 7 through June 23. Looking for a team? Place a Team Matchmaker ad or email our membership director.

The ECSA started in 1980 in Seattle as a group of friends playing ball and has grown to be a welcoming place for LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ players to partake in the competition and spirit of softball. It is now one of the oldest and largest gay softball leagues in the nation.

As a proud member of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA), the ECSA sends its top teams to each year’s NAGAAA Gay Softball World Series. The 2019 World Series is Sep. 2-8 in Kansas City, MO. NAGAAA represents more than 17,000 players and 1,000 teams in 46 member cities across the U.S. and Canada.
