How to qualify for Post Season!

Registered teams may participate in NSA qualifying
tournaments.  A team plays in a qualifying tournament to
earn the right to participate in a post-season tournament. 
To participate in a post-season tournament, your team must  qualify.  A team qualifies by finishing 1st (World Series Berth and State Berth) and 2nd (State Championship Berth)  in a qualifying tournament. A team may qualify
from a lower finishing position depending on if the teams finishing above that team have already obtained the berth.   Post Season tournaments include State Championships
and World Series Tournaments.  A team does not have to
qualify for an N.I.T., however, tournament directors not familiar
with your team may not allow you to participate in an N.I.T. unless
they can confirm that your team is appropriate for the requested level of play.

Past State Champions

 

For 2013NSA will be using the national points system and
augmenting the points with our additional special points for
NSA league teams, Travel Points, Double points for teams
playing up a division, etc.

All 2013 tournaments will be listed on www.playnsa.com
this year along with the results of those events.

In 2013 you will be able to register online at www.playnsa.com
for tournaments after you've obtained your 2012
registration number.

 

SEEDING FOR Men's State/NW Championships
Teams with the higher point total at State/NW Championships
(IE #1 vs #3 - #1 has the option) for all games will always have
the option at the plate meeting to be home or visitor -
Teams missing the managers meeting will lose that option for their first
game and/or possible subsequent games. So the more you participate in
NSA events the more points you will earn.
