POPS (Past Our Prime Softball) is widely considered the premier adult softball league on Long Island. It comprises the right mix of competition, safety and fun, which is why we’ve got upwards of 600 players on 36 teams in our 40 & Over, 50 & Over, and 60 & Over leagues. That said, POPS is about more than sports – we are part of our local communities and demonstrate this through our charitable givings.

Scholarships. Each year, POPS presents scholarships to select graduating high school seniors of POPS players who will be attending college in the fall. The scholarship recipients are chosen based on a combination of academic achievement, athletic participation, and involvement in community service. In 2019, POPS gave $2,500 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors.

Families In Need. POPS gives money each holiday season to families in our local communities who have fallen upon hard times and could use some assistance. For instance, POPS gave over $4,000 to local families in need in 2019.

The money we donate is collected in a variety of ways.
  • Some players donate during the registration process.
  • POPS is a not-for-profit, and therefore at the end of the year, after all league expenses are paid, funds remaining from registration fees (if any) are donated.
Since the start of POPS' charity endeavors, POPS has raised and donated over $25,000 dollars to families in our communities.
