PRESS RELEASE: Washington, DC March 27, 2017. The Leadership and Board of Directors of USASOA proudly announces the inclusion of a formal USASOA athletics program designed to raise and enhance mission awareness in addition to serving as a recreational outlet for our military service members and veterans.
The USASOA Athletic Program and it's ensuing activities and teams will bring service members and veterans together to participate in a community of competitive sports, fellowship and comradery in an environment committed to team and family. Sports and recreational activities have long been proven and considered to be a healthy outlet and even the conduit for the physical and mental well-being for individuals. Our new athletic program is designed to both raise awareness for the USASOA mission as well as create and promote healthy living among our military and veterans.
We are happy and excited to have the Maryland Military Patriots become a part of the USASOA Athletic Program which will be guided by our new Program Director of USASOA Athletics, Gabriel Stecker, US Navy. The Patriots is a military softball team comprised of active duty and veterans representing Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coasties assigned to multiple military installations throughout Washington, DC and Central Maryland. The Patriots compete in numerous Softball tournaments, both civilian and military, within the Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Delaware regions and over the past two years, have fielded a team at the USSSA Military World Softball Tournament.
