National Softball Census 2009 (February 2010)

- Understanding how widely the game is played
- Comparing differences in regions and programs
- Attracting sponsorship and community support
- Comparing Softball with other sports
- Assessing trends from year to year
- Providing a basis for setting future targets and opportunities
- Assessing emerging and changing workloads
- Understanding the socio-demographic characteristics of participants
- Matching the "supply" of Softball infrastructure and support services with the “demand”opportunities from participation and players.
