Flag Day Game/Tournament News

Hi Folks,

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!

I would like to thank everyone that attended the Flag Day Games and Tournament last week!   Over 200 people attended the three days of games.  That is 66% of our membership.   14 people outside of LVSSA attended and we had two teams from Anthem. 

The following teams won their division:

55: West Coast Water (WCW)

65: Sin City Stars

70 and Women’s: Army Team 

 

I would like to recognize a few people for their contributions:

Felix for coordinating the teams and the schedule.

Chuck Godman for coordinating the 70’s Division.

Jim for coordinating the fields at BLD and the Umpires and making sure the games went smooth.

Yours truly for the rosters and communication.

Garth for coaching Team Freedom 55’s.

Laurie for her opening day remarks. 

Duane Meth for coordinating the Anthem squads.

Jim McEvoy for coordinating the ROTC Honor Guard.

The ROTC Honor Guard members.

“Train” Lane and the umpires.

Players that had to switch teams and the free agents to get us through.

The Teams that participated and their managers.

The BLD Staff!

And all the folks on Saturday for coordinating the Co-Ed Games and BBQ – Laurie, Louise, George, “Bear” Beyer and his son.

…and thanks to you, OUR MEMBERS, for making this event week a success!    - Rod

Here is some information to assist you:

Lorenzi Park has been our Las Vegas Senior Softball Association home for more than 20 years.  We come from all over the city to participate in practice, recreational play and tournaments 5 days each week.  It is our playground.  With the sudden and swift conversion of 2 diamonds to soccer fields we have pleaded for a plan re-establish a 4-plex in the CLV with restrooms.

Money is not the only issue when it comes to Recreation.  It is a quality of life service to provide our citizens choices and opportunities to play in venues whether active or passive.  As longtime taxpayers, we want to enjoy our days in the fresh air while building and maintaining friendships.

At this stage in our lives, time is of the essence.  How many more years will we be able to play?  Only God knows.  We ask for our 300 members and those who will follow.

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.
