Carolina Piedmont Softball League (CPSL) was formed in August 2018 to bring the International Pride Softball formerly NAGAAA experience to the Carolinas. International Pride Softball  formerly NAGAAA (North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance) is an organization that provides an opportunity for the LGBTQ community to have a safe space to play and participate in the sport of softball. The goal of CPSA is to give LGBTQ players in the Carolinas an opportunity to play in a International Pride Softball league, and have the opportunity to participate in the Gay Softball World Series.

Welcome to the official site for iPrideSoftball, a division of The North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA).
