2021 Dome World Series – Ontario

NSA Canada – Ontario has been working diligently with Provincial and Regional Health Agencies and have concluded that the 2021 Dome World Series cannot move forward without putting the health and safety of its participants at risk.
We have come up with an alternative strategy that will allow teams to participate based on Regions and Ontario Health compliance. For further information please contact Rick Shanahan, NSA Ontario Provincial Director, rick@nsacanada.ca and Rick will discuss with you whether your team is eligible to play in the regional event.
We are getting close NSA Community and our Slo-Pitch season is around the corner. 2021 will be an exciting and exceptional year for all in the ball community and we cannot wait to see you all on the diamonds.

BAT STANDARDS UPDATE

NSA Canada has been actively monitoring the continuing evolution of bat standards and was interested to learn that USSSA has changed their commencement date of the new bat testing standards from July 2020 and has extended it indefinitely.

NSA Canada as a program wants to ensure that you, the participant, stay informed as to how these changes will affect you and the products you have purchased or will do so in the future for league and tourney play.

With NSA Canada and other national programs using the lower density ball, we have always been at the forefront of participant safety, which is the primary reason for these upcoming rule changes.

Whether we agree or not with the new standards due to these North American changes, it will be what the bat manufacturers will follow due to the huge influence of USSSA in the market.

These manufacturers are a major part of our program and we will ensure that as always moving forward, NSA Canada will listen to all parties involved to continue to have the best program for all.

NSA Canada is going to continue to review the situation and make an informed and final decision on the bat standards once all the information becomes available in our market.

We currently have sanctioned the new testing standard as well as the grandfathered standard indefinitely, but will reserve the right to make changes to this process moving forward based on any informed info that may arise and impact all parties.

Thank you for support and see you on the fields!

Thanks for supporting NSA Canada!

2021 Western Canada indoor World series – postponed

 With the ongoing uncertainty of when restrictions will be lifted we have made the decision to postpone the 2021 Western Canada Indoor World Series.
In working with health authorities and communicating with the facilities management team at the Field House we simply cannot ensure the safety of all participants,
and we are unable to get confirmation that we can run the event with concessions, bathrooms etc. as the Field House remains closed to the public.
 This event is very important to NSA Canada and all of Western Canada, our historical participation includes teams from BC, AB, SK, and Manitoba and without clear definitive confirmation that the event is a go it would be reckless and irresponsible for us to continue down this path, focused on the existing date. 
We are working with the field house, and a local dome here within the City of Calgary on possible dates to run this event prior to the end of the winter season. We will update if and when we get that confirmation.
