Softball Club Prince was founded in 1993. The original name of the club was “Princ – Dugave”, but the name was changed after we were granted a field within the Sport Center Jarun in Zagreb. Excellence, quality, commitment and love for this game are the main characteristics of our club. From the very beginning we were competing in the European Cup competition, while in 1996 we competed for the first time at the European Cup Winners Cup in Haarlem, Netherlands. We are carrying the title of the most successful softball club in Croatia.
Our primary activity is organizing practices for four different age groups: seniors (+14 years), Women Juniors / Men Juniors (15-19 years), girl cadets / boy cadets (12-15 years) and minime (8-12 years). Apart from the regular training sessions that take place throughout the year, we regularly participate in European competitions where our members achieve great results. Also, for the seventh consecutive year we organized an international tournament “Forever Fastpitch”, and the International Tournament – “Ball Game”. In the last few years we organized two summer camps: Zagreb Softball Camp 2012, 2015 and 2016
Besides providing regular softball and fitness practices, the club also pays great attention to educating the players about a healthy lifestyle, making friendships across Europe, and learning about new countries and cultures. We have organized several workshops about healthy eating and recreational activities. We have also organized international tournaments which gave our members a chance to meet players from other countries, create new friendships, and learn about different cultures.
Our main objective is to assist youth in the adaptation of healthy habits that also constitute the fundamentals of the sporting life. We are developing through team sport teamwork, and with all that we organize sport camps, tournaments, etc. Thanks to our dedicated and passionate work we have achieved great results so far, the trophies won and achieved is only a small reflection of the effort required: 20 years as Croatian champions, 18 times we were winners of Croatian Cup, and our program has won all 13 championships in Zagreb.
In 2016 we our project Volunteering for Sport got funding of European Commission, in Erasmus + programm – Key Action 1 – European Voluntary Service (2015-3-HR01-KA105-021589). Two volunteers are now voluntaring in our organization.
