New as of 2016 is the Player Classification Policy and Point System. The Player Classification will allow the coach to determine the team's classification. This year the NSA is introducing the Player Classification Program, each player will be given a point value according to the last three years played in NSA. If played all 4 years (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016) the total points will be divided by 4; if played 2 years, those would be divided by 2. Three years of NSA history would divide by 3. The top 12 players with the highest point value will determine the team class. 

Step 1: Coach will go to www.PlayNSA.com and click on "Coaches" link at the top of the page. 

Step 2: Coach will click on Team Sanction and fill out the team information and choose his or her appropriate director

Step 3: Once the Director receives the sanction fee, the coach will receive an email listing the team sanction number. 

Step 4: The coach returns to www.PlayNSA.com and clicks "Coaches" and selects Team Login, enters the team sanction number and the password chosen when the team registration was completed to start building a roster. 

Step 5: On the roster page the coach will have a team calculator that he or she will use when selecting players to determine the teams class (Elite, Gold, Silver or Bronze). Below is total range value that will constitute the team class.

Elite 77.01-105 (Values updated for 2017)

Gold 53.01-77

Silver 29.01-53

Bronze 0-29 

Step 6: Team class value is based on top 12 point players. Below are the values that will be given to players: 

Major Restricted List = 12 points

Restricted Watch List = 10 points

Restricted list and the Restricted Player Watch list will be posted under Players Page and the calculator for easy viewing. 

Elite = 8 

Elite + = 9 

Elite Super World Winner = 9

Gold = 6 

Gold + = 7

 Gold Super World Winner = 8

Silver = 4 

Silver + = 5

Silver Super World Winner = 6

Bronze = 2 

Bronze + = 3

Bronze Super World Winner = 4

Plus Point (+) is for teams who win significant tournaments or excel in multiple significant events in their class throughout the year and will be evaluated at the end of the year. 

 

Below are the values that will be given to players that have only played with other associations. Adult Directors agreed at the 2015 convention to these values but requested that if deemed necessary the director may add additional points. 

E = 4

D = 6

 C = 8 

Teams that win the Supers in each class will have all players on that roster that signed to play at the Supers locked to the next higher class next year as well as each player getting an extra 2 points.

Example of a team and how the values work:

Team Goose - Silver 2015 (was a Silver + at end of year so that is why you see 5 in 2015 for everyone) Plus is for teams who win significant tournaments in their class throughout the year. 

Player         2013      2014      2015      Value

 

Player 1          4             4           5           4.33

Player 2          4             4           5           4.33

Player 3          4             6           5            5

Player 4          4             6           5            5

Player 5          6             4           5            5 

Player 6          4             4           5           4.33 

Player 7          4             4           5           4.33 

Player 8          4                          5           4.5 

Player 9          4             4           5           4.33 

Player 10        2             4           5           3.66 

Player 11        8                          5           6.5 

Player 12        4             4           5           4.33 

Player 13        4             4           5           4.33 

Player 14                       2           5           3.5 

Player 15                       6           5           5.5 

Player 16                                    5            5 

Player 17                                    5            5 

 

In this example the total team Class using top 12 players with the highest values would be: 58.82 The team would be classified as a Gold team. 

 

The Team calculator is available for coaches to help create a team to determine team class by adding players with various points. This is a calculator to help research and build your team, but it will still require the State Director to research and then approve the player points and approve the team for the classification. The State Director and /or Zone VP have the authority to move up players/teams at any time. 

 

All teams will be approved by the state director before being allowed to play in a certain class. 

 

Please contact your state director or Zone VP with questions.


Approved Bats for NSA Play
Several questions have come up recently regarding the old Approved Bat List that NSA previously provided on PlayNSA.com.  That list is no longer used by NSA as the new requirement effective 1/1/2015 requires all approved bats must bear the NSA2012 logo.  

NSA is working to have the old bat list removed from the search engines since it is no longer an active link from the PlayNSA.com website.  Any third party list or website is invalid.

DO YOU HAVE YOUR PLAYER I.D. NUMBER?

All players competing in NSA qualifying play MUST have a Player Identification Number (Register one time only!)
