Our Mission

The Badgerland Softball League is a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBT), and supportive alliances social organization structured around the sport of softball and designed to promote and advance the health, social structure, and equality of the Madison, Wisconsin area LGBT community.

Why is Badgerland Softball necessary? 

LGBT people regularly face threats of harassment, intimidation, bullying, and violence. This is especially true in the context of sports, where athletes are defined by their strength, gender roles, and competiveness, rather than their character, dedication to teammates, or commitment to the game. As a result, many LGBT people feel isolated and fearful of the thought of organized athletics. 

The Badgerland Softball League seeks to change this dynamic. Badgerland redefines what it means to play sports by providing competitive sports experiences, in a supportive and affirming climate, that fosters lifelong relationships. From our humble beginning as a single team in 2002, to the 20+ team, 250+ member 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization we have become today, Badgerland Softball has proven its ability to survive, grow, and develop our community into a safe and supportive family.
