Update: NSSA 2014-2015 Try-Out Invitations

August 6, 2014

Hi Parents, Players and Coaches!

We know your player is anxiously awaiting an invitation to a team.  We wanted to let you know NSSA is working diligently to form rosters and send invitations as quickly as possible.

How this process works:

Initially, invitations are sent to players invited to top teams in their respective age groups.  Then, if some invitations are declined, we reach down the list and invite the next in line.  This takes some time as many families are on vacation and have difficulty receiving and responding to email communications immediately.  Additional invitations are going out every day.  You should receive an invitation or other communication via email by Saturday morning at the latest.  But please check email daily as we are sending them out as soon possible. 

We take team formation seriously and want to get the right players on the right teams and we appreciate your patience as we navigate through this stressful time.
