Southern Express Softball

Welcome to the website for Southern Express Softball!  We are glad you came to visit!

Southern Express is the longest running travel select softball program in the southern part of Illinois.  Started in 1994, the organization celebrates over twenty years of softball excellence!  We have teams competing at various age levels, 10U through 18U.  Each team has a regional mix of the best players found in southern Illinois (and bordering states such as Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee).  Teams play a limited fall schedule, practice during the winter months, and play throughout the spring and summer.

Most teams, on average, play an eight tournament schedule in the spring/summer.  And most teams end their summer season with a trip to one of the sanctioned national tournaments hosted throughout the country.  Older teams focus on ASA tournaments and college-exposure events during the fall and summer months.  In late summer (usually late July or early August), tryouts are held for various age groups.

At Southern Express, we take pride in our softball program and our softball “families.”  Our players are some of the best in region!  Be sure to watch for us at a softball field near you!

She might be wearing a navy and red Southern Express uniform, or you might see her wearing her school colors and helping her grade school or high school team win championships!

Throughout the fall and spring, our Express girls are school rivals in junior high and high school.  But during the summer months, they are part of one large softball family we are proud to call Southern Express!  So go on out to a field near you and cheer for your favorite Express player, no matter which uniform she is wearing!
