History l.jpg
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.

  • 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.
