COVID-19 UPDATE: 5/24/2020

To Our LVSSA Family,

We await Gov. Sisolak to speak on Tuesday about the next Phase of re-opening Nevada.

Our hope is that sports fields will be included in Phase 2.

With that possibility, Jim and I had a nationwide online conference with 6 other major Softball organizations to come up with a list of recommendations to help assure local agencies that we are prepared to return to playing softball.

We also know that Las Vegas, Clark County and other governmental agencies will add their input.

SSUSA's latest newsletter summerized the agreed upon list and named all organizations that participated.  You can review that document below.

Your Board of Directors has continued to work toward the future of LVSSA. 

There is much uncertainty for our upcoming SWC in August with regards to how many teams may participate which in turn has a direct impact on how LVSSA tournament teams earn by field maintenace and check-in labor.  Check-in is being suspended on the traditional opening day of each session to maintain social distancing.  The amount of venues for field labor assignments may be decreased significally according to SSUSA because the expected number of team sign-ups could be greatly reduced.

The WMC is potentially in the same situation of reduced # of teams attending this fall.

Board member George Kuehnel had LVSSA entered in the Summerlin 4th of July Parade to proudly march with our banner.  The exposure was to let more than 40,000 attendees know about LVSSA and how to join in senior softball.  That activity is going to be virtual and we will not participate this year.

Monday is Memorial Day.  I remember all through my school years that it was originally Decoration Day. To honor the deceased, soldiers would decorate graves of their fallen comrades with flowers, flags and wreaths. Hence Decoration Day.  Although Memorial Day became its official title in the 1880s, the holiday wouldn't legally become Memorial Day until 1967.

Thank you to each and every person that served our country.  Fly the flag and honor the fallen.

Laurie Buchman, President

WHAT'S NEW?

Check out our new Comment Board.  This new online meeting place let's our members talk softball.  You can respond to comments or start your own subject.  Let's get some good conversations going and remember, be nice!

 

LAS VEGAS SENIOR SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION

LVSSA exists to promote Senior Softball from ages 40+ through 85+ by providing fields to scrimmage weekly, the Southwest Championships and World Masters tournaments, along with connections to local league play.   Running the highest quality tournaments and providing for the needs of our membership utilizing a group of volunteers ensures a pleasurable experience for our players.

 

LAS VEGAS TOURNAMENTS

We offer world class tournaments featuring the two largest SSUSA events in the USA.   Las Vegas offers the finest hotels, entertainment, restaurants and gaming.  The warm, dry climate along with exclusive use of the Trump "Rock" softball and field maintenance between every game make Las Vegas the premier place to play softball.  Our selection of ballfields is top notch.

 

SOUTHWEST CHAMPIONSHIPS

With 216 teams this year, this always growing event is the 2nd largest on the SSUSA circuit.  Las Vegas Senior Softball, along with SSUSA makes this a great event.  Temps are usually in the mid 80's with very low humidity.  This tournament is not reserved for just residents of the Southwest.  So wherever you live, you're welcome to join us.

 

WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS

The granddaddy of all senior softball features more than 600 teams from all over the world.  Many believe they have to win a qualifier to be in this tournament, but that is not true.  All SSUSA qualified roster teams are welcome.  Beginning in the third week of September, the World Masters is open to all ages from 40+ thru 85+ at all different levels of play.  This is the one event you don't want to miss.  Rings are given out to all bracket winners.  Come out and show us how good you are.
