LSA is eastern Iowa’s premier LGBTQ+ Softball League and was founded in the Fall of 2017. 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.
See you at the ball field!
It's time for our 2023 LSA Fall Season!
The first week of games will be on Sunday 9/17 at Mercer Park in Iowa City. Game times are 10:00am, 11:00am & 12:00pm.
Fall league will be 4 weeks long (9/17, 9/24, 10/1 & 10/8) and all teams will play 2 games each Sunday for a total of 8 games. ALL skill levels are welcome, the fall season is a bit more laid back than the Spring/Summer season, so it is a wonderful environment for first time players.
The player fee is $25.00 which is less than $3.50 per game - how about that!
If you haven't signed up yet please use the link below ASAP and get your registration done. Team rosters will be created early next week so we can get schedules out to all players before Sunday 9/17.
Please email your LSA Board at firstname.lastname@example.org:
