Mission & Core Values


Delta Fastpitch Association aspires to be an outstanding softball organization that provides a high quality experience to every athlete.  A high quality experience is one in which every athlete:

  1. Is coached using the principles of positive coaching.
  2. Is competitive at practices and games while still having fun.
  3. Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance.
  4. Learns ‘life lessons’ that have value beyond the playing field.
  5. Learns the skills, tactics and strategies of softball and improves as a player.

We recognize that coaches are the people who most directly make this possible.  It is our goal to provide each coach with the tools to succeed.  We are committed to creating a positive culture, in which, coaches, parents, fans, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission.

“Through Heart and Hustle, May We Rise Like an Inferno.”

Core Values

We are committed to the highest sense of integrity encompassing every aspect of our behavior as members of the Delta Fastpitch Community.  We will take ownership of our actions, on and off the field.

Strength in Community
We are a community encompassing our teams, coaches, players, parents, fans, officials, alumni, and the surrounding area. We serve as role models, mentors, and leaders seeking not only to teach others but also to learn from them.  We take pride in creating and fostering life enhancing relationships, which lead to a strong and vibrant community.

Respect for the game.  Respect for our opponents.  Respect for officials.  Respect for our families.  Respect for our community.  Respect for each other.  Respect for ourselves.

Competitive Spirit
We use the competitive spirit and sportsmanship we develop as teammates to do our best to become the very best.  Our goal is to compete and to excel no matter our level while acting and competing in a way that reflects our core values.

Pride in our History
We are the beneficiaries of a rich and vibrant tradition built by North Delta Softball, North Delta Sunfire, South Delta Softball, South Delta Invaders and Delta Heat Fastpitch. Our personal and team triumphs add to the growing pride that we share with those that came before us and built the sport of softball in Delta. Through leadership, spirit, and a connection to our past, we will build on the softball tradition and instill a pride in Delta Fastpitch that will remain throughout a lifetime.
