The Arthur Allsopp Shield is a trophy symbolizing the Under 16 Boys championship of the Australian Softball Federation. The trophy and its associated competition were established in 1991, giving Australia for the first time a full set of national softball championships: Open, Under 19 and Under 16 interstate championships for both women and men. The competitions for the shield draw participants from every Australian state; those chosen to compete are sometimes the subject of local and regional publicity.
