Bomani Sports Research 
Softball Association 

Goal:  To provide a recreational based softball association. The BSRSA provides information on safety, equipment, rules, and operation for league and tournament directors.

What the BSRSA is: The BSRSA is an association created for, and reflecting the needs of recreational softball. The BSRSA is NOT in direct competition with other, tournament based, softball associations. The current major softball associations are designed for competitive tournament play while the BSRSA is designed for recreational play. BSRSA provides guidance and information to assist league and tournament directors. 

What the BSRSA provides: The cost for any player, coach, player, league or tournament director to join the BSRSA is $21 for a given calendar year. This allows access to the BSRSA member's website. This site will include independent testing and safety ranking of softball bats and balls for your league to rely on for making decisions on which equipment is SAFE or UNSAFE for your level of league play. We also have Softball Related Articles, Research Updates and Information on league operations dedicated to the current safety issues involved in the sport of softball.
