Manhattan Optimist Fastpitch Association

The Manhattan Optimist Fastpitch Association (MOFA) has taken the lead in promoting women's fastpitch softball in the greater Manhattan area for the past thirty years. The Association's goal is to help young women to develop fully their softball talents and to experience the game of fastpitch at a highly competitive and advanced level. Many of our teams are among the very best in the state of Kansas and are well-known throughout the state and region. Older players from our Association form the nucleus for many of the high school teams in our area. Alumni of our program routinely go on to play at the collegiate level.

If you know of an athlete that may be interested in playing competitive softball, they may contact one of the teams below. To determine the appropriate age group for an athlete, the January 1 rule is observed, which is, the athlete will qualify for the age group (8 & Under, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U) corresponding to their age on January 1.
