Our Mission

To empower girls of all communities and income levels to be confident and active through fastpitch softball.


We collect gently used softball equipment and distribute to girls and teams that cannot access it. 

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit (47-1704706)

We founded Catch On because we have all been playing softball since we were young, and we realized how much we have learned and grown during our experiences. We believe that softball encourages confidence, hard-work, and teamwork. We are extremely lucky to have the resources to play softball and be able to learn from it, and we want as many girls as possible to have similar positive experiences. 

TEAM is together everyone achieves more.
— Don Emerson, Softball Coach
