NSA CANADA

   History
    NSA Canada was formed in the spring of 1997, by a group
    of players wanting more out of their Slo-pitch program.

    Our mission right from that very first meeting was to be
    an organization that paid attention to its’ members,
    whether they are players, umpires, tournament organizers
    or league directors.

    This statement alone brings us to many of the policies in
    place today!

    NSA Canada originally started as a Coed program. In 2002, we
    expanded to involve the Men’s & Women’s program. This also
    includes our Masters program. The first ever Men’s &
    Women’s Canada World Series started in 2002.

   Facts
    Every year, NSA Canada’s board members meet with the directors,
     slo-pitch players, leagues, tournament convenors and umpires from
     all over Canada to get suggestions and ideas to further improve our
     program.

    NSA Canada takes these ideas very seriously, because after all, it is
     the people involved with the sport that matter.

    NSA Canada also takes pride in its directors and umpires, so
     anything they bring to the table to further our program, is seriously
     considered.

    NSA Canada is an organization built for players by players. We
     believe that anyone who participates in this sport, should be able to
     play for whomever and whenever they desire.

    We are very excited about our continued growth across Canada,
     making NSA the fastest growing program in Canada.
