LSA is eastern Iowa’s premier LGBTQ+ Softball League and was founded in April 2018. LSA is a non-profit 501(c)3 and is committed to providing opportunity and a safe space where both LGBT and Non-LGBT participants can compete in an environment welcoming and open to the LGBTQ+ community. Participants must be 18+ and pay league fees for each season. Games are played Sunday Mornings from 10:00am-1:00pm at either the Hawkeye Softball Complex or Mercer Park in Iowa City. We have 2 seasons (Spring/Summer and Fall) that run from late April to late October.

Exciting news to share with our LSA family and friends – From Little Village Magazine…
To the leadership and staff at LSA of Eastern Iowa:
It is our pleasure to congratulate you on being recognized by Little Village Magazine readers

the community to recognize the hard work and dedication it takes to operate a business or

testament to the tenacity, creativity, flexibility, and dedication of all those involved in making the
work happen every day, and we are excited and honored to share this news with you.
Beyond sharing the news with you and your staff, your achievement will be part of the featured
