The Florida Atlantic Owls are the college softball team of Florida Atlantic University.

For the relatively young program (first fielding a team in 1995), the Florida Atlantic University softball team has been overwhelmingly successful under the leadership of legendary coach, Joan Joyce. In twelve seasons of competition in the Atlantic Sun Conference (from 1995-2006), the Lady Owls won the conference championship nine times, including eight consecutive championships from 1997 through 2004. The Owls added their tenth conference championship in their first season in the Sun Belt Conference in 2007.
