About CAPS

The Chesapeake & Potomac Softball League (CAPS) is a non-profit organization founded in 1983 to establish a friendly place for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (GLBT) people in the greater Washington/Baltimore metropolitan areas to play softball, learn and/or enhance softball skills and meet new people.  

Our league offers two divisions.  Our Open Division, a member of the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA), is made up of co-ed teams placed in divisions based on skill level.  Our Women's Division, a member of the Amateur Sports Alliance of North America (ASANA), is made up of women-only teams.

In addition to our affiliations with NAGAAA and ASANA, CAPS is a proud and active member of Team DC.  Team DC promotes LGBT individual and team sports participation.  Our league follows the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) rules of play!
