Message from the LVSSA Board of Directors

Coming to Lorenzi Park?  Mask up!

LVSSA Members,

Our Board of Directors was contacted by the City of Las Vegas Municipal Sports Unit regarding our usage of Lorenzi Park as observed by Marshals and staff.  We have been notified that we are not in compliance with the mask rule set forth and agreed upon in order for us to use the fields.

This notification is the first and hopefully the last from Recreation Staff.   We want our permit to remain in place.  We also have our memorandum of understanding for field charges waived of approximately $24,000 annually and that cannot be jeopardized/cancelled.

The directive is very clear from CLV – from the time you leave your car a mask/face covering must be worn at all times while at Lorenzi Park.  Social distancing is not a substitute for the removal of your mask.

The only time a mask is not mandatory is while on the field as a player.  While coaching a base, in the dugout, restroom, concourse area etc., you are required to have the mask on until you are back in your vehicle.

All Field Directors and Board members have been notified.  You have a choice to participate or not but participation means adhering to the rule and respecting the field directors trying to keep us on the field.

Let’s all stay safe and comply with the City’s request.

Laurie Buchman, LVSSA President

LVSSA Saturday Team Practices

From Jim Whipple:

I want to take a couple minutes to cover our Saturday schedule and rules. 

First, LVSSA Inc. must submit a request for Saturday play each month with the City of Las Vegas Municipal Sports Unit.  We are granted fields if they are not reserved by another group. This is why it is difficult to guarantee dates when teams request days and times.

Secondly, Saturday play was designed for players and teams who can not utilize fields during the week. Priority will be given to these people and teams. Teams are welcome to use fields for games during the week still.    Wednesdays at 9:30 am is always open, for other days you will need to contact your field representatives/coordinators.

Third, All players must adhere to all City of Las Vegas and LVSSA rules. Teams managers are responsible that enforcement of all City and Association rules. LVSSA will not accept excuse of I did not know rules. In coming weeks all managers will receive a complete list of rules and restrictions.

Rules for Saturdays, 

  • All players must be an LVSSA member or team member. LVSSA policy states; players may play one day, then must be members. New players must complete a registration/waiver form prior to playing.
  • Membership is $40 for balance of 2020 playing season.   Go to LVSSA.com, sign-in and click on “Become a Member”.
  • LVSSA Team -  All players must be members or with a minimum of 6 members a team may be considered a LVSSA team by paying a $200 fee for balance of team (this allows non-members to play Saturdays and our special occasion games only.)
  • Alcohol - NO alcohol permitted at Lorenzi Park.

We will be posting a Saturday schedule as soon as we get some volunteers to assist with Saturday play. Call Jim Whipple to sign-up and volunteer 586-822-2665.

Schedule will be as follows (for Summer 2020) - Starting July 18:

7:30 am.

  • A reminder to all members/players; LVSSA permit is for "practices" please do not make statement to anyone (city workers) that we are having a league or tournament. This will affect our field costs and availability.
  • LVSSA is working on other days and times to hold leagues. Updates will be posted to website as we get closer to those being available.

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.
