The International Softball Federation (ISF) Junior Men’s World Championship (age 19-under) has been held nine times, with the tenth taking place in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada, July 11-20.

Australia heads the list of gold medalists with four consecutive championships (2008, 2005, 2001, 1997), compiling a 44-3 record. In 2012, Australia slipped to third, but still had an 8-2 record.

  • Before 1997, the Aussies never medaled; what an incredible turnaround the program took in beginning its championship run.
  • Canada and Japan co-lead the medal count with seven each, while Australia has five, and New Zealand four.
  • The United States ranks sixth in medal count with two, both silvers in 1985 and 1981.
