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 distinct 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's only teams.  Both divisions compete for the chance to represent our league at the World Series of their respective Alliance organization.

2014 Skills Clinic / Evaluation
The 2014 CAPS Skills Clinic / Evaluation will be held on Sunday, April 13 from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm at Fletcher's Field Park  (5200 Kenilworth Ave. Riverdale, MD 20737). 

The Skills Clinic will offer players the opportunity to learn new skills in the areas of pitching, hitting, fielding and base running.  All new players to the league or players that haven't played in the league for several years must attend the Skills Clinic to be rated using the NAGAAA rating system.  This is also a great place for Free Agents to meet coaches in selecting a team to play on.

After the Clinic, join CAPS players for a Skills Clinic Social Gathering at Nellie's Sports Bar starting at 3:00pm.  Come by for some food and drinks and to hang out with other CAPS members.  Nellie's will be featuring $4 mimosas, Bloody Mary's, Nellie's Draft Beer, house rail drinks and $15 buckets of beer (select brands).  Nellie's is a proud sponsor of CAPS - sponsoring 12 teams this season!
