Penn State Club Softball is a club sports organization at The Pennsylvania State University. The team consists of students who volunteer their time to play the sport they love. Known as PSCS, we participate in the National Club Softball Association and are a part of the North Atlantic South Region. Our mission is to compete well in our conference, place in regionals, and make it to the World Series in Columbus, Georgia. Additionally, we participate in other activities throughout the academic year. These activities include social events and fundraising for Penn State's Dance MaraTHON.
