The objectives of USA Softball of North Dakota shall be:
As the National Governing Body of softball, USA Softball - and, therefore, USA Softball of North Dakota - will be working with SafeSport in an effort to ensure safe environment for all who participate in our program. Officials in our state association as well as all ACE program coaches will have to earn SafeSport certification. For more information, check out the resources available on the USA Softball web site.
Each year, Tharaldson Companies provides all of the awards presented at our state tournaments and contributes toward awards presented at national tournaments. The driving force for this generosity is state and national Softball Hall of Fame member Gary Tharaldson.
