ASA AND ONE DREAM ZERO DISTRACTION LLC
Arizona ASA has entered into a
softball development partnership with One Dream Zero LLC (1DZD).
State-wide clinics will be led by former Arizona Wildcat Pitcher
Estela Piñon and former Sun Devil Pitcher Dallas Escobedo, who
played for the Chicago Bandits and PA Rebellion respectively in
National Pro Fastpitch during the summer of 2014. 1DZD will run
clinics within Arizona exclusively through Amateur Softball
Association (ASA), the National Governing Body of softball in
the United States.
The mission of 1DZD Softball is to
assist clients, both players and coaches, in capitalizing off
their marketability. To heighten the overall skill level of
#FutureGen athletes through camps and clinics. To help parents
learn better ways to market their #FutureGen athletes to College
coaches and to give #FutureGen coaches better skills through
Arizona ASA State Commissioner, Don
Fishel, is excited to have Estella and Dallas both be part of
the Arizona ASA Program. These two professional pitchers will
work with “Individually Registered” ASA players and coaches
prior to, during, or at the conclusion of certain Arizona ASA
Girls Fast-Pitch Tournaments.
Piñon commented, “I never
thought growing up that I would have an outlet that would allow
me to play softball after college and I’ve now had the chance to
do just that. I want to use the clinics to help #FutureGen
players grow into strong athletes and leaders. The biggest
reward for me is going to be seeing the girls I work with land
that college scholarship and hopefully have an opportunity to
play professionally.” Escobedo also shared her thoughts, “This
is an exciting time in my career as a professional athlete,
through this partnership, I’ll be able to reach a tremendous
amount of #FutureGen players and give back to the organization
that was responsible for helping me develop.”
Commissioner Don Fishel hopes to see the clinics in 2015 to
provide Pitching, Fielding, Sliding, and Batting instruction
from several 1DZD Staff. Mr. Fishel also hopes Coaching Clinics
will be available.
Arizona ASA will promote and
facilitate the state-wide clinics, while all registration fees
will be collected by 1DZD on their site
to Tournament ASA and notice the upcoming ASA tournaments that
include 1DZD clinics.

REGISTERASA.COM IS NOW “LIVE” FOR 2015 SEASON
We are excited to begin our first
year transition to our new registration calendar season to
better follow our ASA National Championship Calendar of
September 1-August 31 season. As the
site is now “live” and ready for you to register your team or
league for the 2015 season, there are a few changes to the site.
If you go to the bottom of your home plate when you log in, you
will see a “more documents” link to get all the help you need in
registering your team or league.
The following steps are
listed for you to individually register your Arizona ASA team
Go to your 2014 team and click add
team to new season button
Create your 2015 team by adding
coaches, players, yourself as team admin.
Note: NEW FOR 2015:
You won’t be able to see your team until your background check
clears so please create the invoice, and then send the invoice
with payment minus the $200 to your registrar:
send invoice and payment to is at the top of your invoice.
We will begin your background checks when we receive the
invoice with payment so we can approve you as team admin once
your background check clears.
checks made payable to Arizona ASA
Your area Registrar
Southern/Central Districts: Tom Carle
Districts: Rick Hormann
As we understand that if
you are individually registered for the 2014 season through
Arizona ASA, you are covered through December, 31 2014 for your
2014 team. As we are now into the 2015 season, we need you to
decide to either wait to re-register your 2015 team sometime
before December 31, 2014 which will only give your team 8 months
of membership, insurance, etc. for your 2015 team or register
your team now and take advantage of 12 months of membership,
insurance, etc for your 2015 team.
If you are wanting to
wait until later this year to re-register your team and want to
add a couple of players to your roster, you will need to still
go to your 2014 team, add team to new season and only register
yourself as coach and team admin and add the couple players to
your team for 2015. All the 2014 players will still be eligible
to play through December 31, 2014 but will then need to be added
to your new 2015 team after the 2014 season.
If you are a
brand new team that are joining our organization for 2015,
please create a profile and add yourself as a team admin and
coach. You can then create your team info and then add your

ARIZONA ASA TO CHANGE JO
REGISTRATION SEASON TO SEPTEMBER 1-AUGUST 31
EFFECTIVE 2015 SEASON
ASA to change JO Registration
Arizona ASA will be joining 22
other ASA Associations in restructuring our Junior Olympic
Registration dates from the traditional January 1-December 31
timeline to September 1-August 31 to better correlate the
National Championship Tournament Calendar. As many teams begin
recruiting and conducting tryouts right after the National
Championships, we are restructuring our registration schedule to
help teams put together their new teams in September after the
ASA/USA National Championships and Western National
Championships are concluded.
THIS CHANGE WILL
NOT EFFECT THE PLAYERS ELIGIBILITY AGE !!!!!!!
Why did we decided to join the other
22 associations with this registration change?
time frame better matches the normal playing season evolution of
our teams. After National Championship play in August, teams
reform, and players move up to begin the next year of
2. It allows your team the opportunity to
purchase the best insurance policy in youth sports, Bollinger
Insurance that can be utilized in ANY friendly, practice or
other outside organizations tournaments as all other
organizations begin their team registration season
September-August, without having to wait until January for your
newly formed team after tryouts.
3. For the teams who
have high school playing athletes on their roster, gives your
team September-February to play in tournaments, etc. as opposed
to registering in January and only having two months as a team
before you lose players to high school teams.
4. For our
association that has the ability to play in most of the state
year round, it gives all of teams in the Central and Southern
District the ability to utilize the team registration the entire
year leading up to Nationals. Also gives your team more time to
prepare for National Championships if you qualify to go.
How will this effect teams that are registered for 2014
that started in January 2014?
Arizona ASA teams
that have registered in 2014 are valid until December 31, 2014.
However, for the 2015 season, the registration period will end,
August 31, 2015.
What are we doing to assist
your team with this transition?
Arizona ASA is
conducting a tournament in Prescott, Arizona, August 23-24
called the Registration Kick-Off Classic. We are giving all
teams who participate in this tournament a $200 credit towards
purchasing your 2015 team registration through
To register for this tournament,
please go to
www.tournamentasa.com and click
on girls fast pitch, then Arizona ASA. You can log in with your
tournamentasa.com account and register for the tournament.
We believe, like many of the other ASA Associations who have
made the switch from January 1-December 31 to the NEW September
1-August 31 registration period will better serve our Junior
Olympics teams. If you have any questions in regards to this
change, please contact the J.O. State Commissioner.
