Teams Classifications
Any teams who have added new players from a higher classified team (IE D team adds a player from a C or above team) will need to submit a roster for review/classification determination prior to participating in NSA events.

Some of these teams are no longer together, or have combined with other teams and some didn't participate in the NSA program last year.
Teams who do not agree with their current classification can appeal.
To appeal your classification via mail -NSA, P.O. Box 444, Bellevue, Wa. 98009 or email to steve@nsawa.com. Please include in your appeal
 a complete list of the players that will be on the roster for the current year, what team, and level of play, each player played at in prior year and the reasons why you feel your team should be reclassified.

Also include what your teams post season aspirations are (IE State, Western Worlds or Super Worlds).  Teams who have Worlds aspirations, may be classified differently for instate qualifiers and for the State Tournament as opposed to their Worlds classification. Some teams may be on the bubble so to speak and may need to participate in a few qualifiers to determine where they may be eligible to compete for worlds. Example - D classified team may be eligible for E NIT/Worlds, but must play instate qualifiers and state as a D team.

Teams who will have a different world classification will need to participate in at least one NIT in their instate classification. Example D team (E World/NIT eligible) will need to participate in at least one D NIT to be eligible to go to E Western Worlds and E Super Worlds (team still earn a berth for Western and Super Worlds)

NSA of Washington realizes that instate competition and worlds competition are different and a majority of teams do not have world aspirations. Thus the possible different eligibility. NSA of Washington's thought process/reasoning is to promote a level playing field for both instate competition and worldscompetition
