We believe in the transformative power of sport

Professional Instruction

EL1 Softball is the women’s fastpitch softball programming division of EL1 Sports, a national sports training company created by athletes, coaches and educators who believe in the transformative power of sport to make a difference in people’s lives both on and off the field. The goal of EL1 Softball is to improve and enhance playing, training and exposure opportunities for young girls and women in softball. Through this, we can accomplish the greater mission of preparing young women to be confident and successful in the game of life!

In our facilities and through our programs, run by a female-led staff who have played softball at the highest levels, we are always focused on teaching skills that will help women to gain confidence and experience.

Partnering with the pros

In 2022, EL1 Sports and Major League Baseball forged a partnership agreement designed to grow accessibility and engagement in youth baseball and softball. The innovative multiyear agreement includes a revenue-sharing component that makes MLB a partial owner of EL1 and will create an ongoing source of funding for grassroots programs such as MLB’s Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) and participatory programs such as PLAY BALL.


MLB partnership

We are excited to be a new partner of Major League Baseball. The multi-year deal is designed to support existing local youth sports ecosystems around the country, and to promote the growth of the game by expanding access to high-quality youth baseball and softball instruction for players of all skill levels and socioeconomic backgrounds. The partnership will ultimately create significant opportunities for the entire youth sports ecosystem.

EL1 teaming up with the Alliance Fastpitch

EL1 Softball has now entered into an exclusive agreement to become the Official Softball Facility Partner of The Alliance Fastpitch. The goals of the partnership are to develop youth fastpitch softball training facilities around the country utilizing an integrated training-and-curriculum approach; to create career paths for current and former fastpitch players; and ultimately to build a sustainable professional fastpitch league.

EL1 Softball Tournaments, in partnership with Colorado USA Softball, are committed to advancing the sport of softball in the Centennial State. Leveraging this rich infrastructure USA Softball has to offer, EL1 is dedicated to delivering high-action game experiences and fostering player development across all age brackets
