2023 JUNIOR OLYMPIC CUP
ABOUT THE USA SOFTBALL JUNIOR OLYMPIC CUP
JO Cup & Team USA
The USA Softball JO Cup is dedicated to giving back to the game of softball as a portion of the entry fee includes a donation to the USA Softball Women’s National Team Program. The JO Cup also serves as an opportunity for evaluation by the USA Softball coaching staff and the Women’s National Team Selection Committee.
“What a great opportunity to have some of the best teams coming together to play in a tournament that has prestige. We will find out who the most competitive programs in the country are now! Some of the USA Softball Coaching Staff will be present also to evaluate these players for our future National Teams.”
– Tokyo 2020 Olympic Softball Head Coach, Ken Eriksen
