WELCOME TO NYSSA (NEW YORK SENIOR SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION)
NYSSA consists of approximately 150 players ranging from 70-92 years of age.
We take the game very seriously, and have a great deal of fun every inning of every game.
We highly recommend that the family and friends of our players not take it personally if the NYSSA player in their life appears to be unhappy or distressed at any time.
With the emphasis on fun and safety, we are unquestionably highly competitive and organized, with all players in uniform and ASA umpires behind the plate each game.
Double headers are played every Monday and Wednesday morning from May through September on the three turf fields at Wantagh Park and Field A at Cantiague Park.
Our league is comprised of players with varying abilities, all of whom share one common interest: LOVE FOR THE GAME OF SOFTBALL.
Teams are formed for one-year terms, with an annual Manager’s draft designed to maximize parity among all teams.
We accommodate our players with features such as courtesy runners after they reach base, separate scoring and strike plates, extra defensive players in the outfield and infield, and other rules all designed to enhance safety and allow senior athletes to compete even if injuries and other health issues limit them.
All qualified players are welcome to submit an application regardless of where they live.
