The Franklin Softball Association was established in September 2021 as a result of a surge in population to the local area highlighting a need for an additional association in South Auckland to provide softball support to the community. 

Franklin is part of the greater Auckland region with boundaries stretching from Ramarama in the north, to Pokeno in the south, Waiuku in the west and Mangatangi in the east. 

The Association offers both a local men's and women’s competition based out of the Colin Lawrie Fields in Pukekohe, as well as a tee-ball and softball leagues for children ages 4-12. 

Starting with the 2023-2024 Season, Franklin will host a U11 & U13 mixed grades competition out of Colin Lawrie Fields in Pukekohe and Rugby Park in Waiuku with a total of 13x U11 teams and 8x U13 teams. 

Junior competitive players (15-19 years old) compete in the Auckland Softball Association competitions.

The Franklin Softball Association aims to continue to grow as an Association and provide opportunities for our young elite athletes to compete at the highest level possible.

This year we are proud to announce that we will be sending representative teams to the following tournaments:

  • U19 Boys, Lower Hutt, 4-7 January 2024
  • U17 Boys, Christchurch, 11-14 January 2024
  • U15 Boys & Girls, Hawke's Bay, 20-22 January 2024
  • U13 Boys & Girls, Lower Hutt, 3-4 February 2024

​​​​​​​Thank you to our coaches, team staff and volunteers for making these tournaments happen for our young athletes!

The Franklin area is the fastest growing community in all of New Zealand! ​​​​​​​Come join us for an afternoon at the park and enjoy some amazing softball.
