Alabama High School Volleyball

    Softball has evolved since the early days of it's existence in the 1970s to become a favorite among student athletes and fans alike in Alabama.

    Although played at the high school level since about 1970, it did not become a sanctioned sport by the AHSAA until 1986. The first statewide tournament was held that spring with Satsuma winning the 4A-6A tournament and Pleasant Valley bringing home the crown for classes 1A-3A.

    Slow pitch softball dominated the sport in Alabama until the late 1990s. Robertsdale took home the first state title in fast pitch in 1995 when only a few teams had switched to the faster paced sport.

    The last slow pitch teams moved to fast pitch following the 2002 season. Since then the sport has continued to grow in popularity across Alabama.

    Following years of research, in June of 2007 the website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist us  with research of the schools and teams to make this a reality.

    Other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially will include information about coaches, state playoffs, all state teams, player awards and team records.

    It is virtually impossible to provide scores for every  game for every team. Who knows, later even that may be a possibility. There is still a lot of work to do with the all state teams of years past but our intentions are to find every team.

    We encourage everyone to get involved in helping us provide the most accurate information possible. If you have information that would be useful to us please let us know.
