Are you new to NSA? This area will explain the steps you need to take to sign up for your NSA Membership (Formerly team sanction), team insurance, enter your roster online, and enter tournaments online.
Please note it is the COACH and/or MANAGER'S responsibility to know the rules. Ignorance of a rule or bylaw does not negate the penalty. If you have a question please check the NSA Rulebook. The Rulebook is available after you create a login and receive your Membership (Sanction) Number.
NSA Membership (Team Sanction)
All teams that participate in NSA tournaments must have a NSA Membership (Team Sanction) for the current season. You will have to create a User ID for NSA, if you already have one please sign in. Click Team Membership to begin filling out the form. After your team applies for a membership number online by filling out and submitting the form, you will receive payment instructions. Once the office receives your payment by either via mail or by charge (If your State or Tournament Director accepts charges), their office will APPROVE your membership. You will then receive your current season Membership number via e-mail. This number will be used to purchase team insurance, enter NSA Tournaments online, and enter your roster online.
It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED when filling out the membership form you include a secondary contact for the team and use a different email than the main contact if at all possible.
Important Note: Teams can be reclassified at anytime during the season due to the overall strength of the team! Please make sure to select the proper classification at the beginning of the year.
After receiving your membership number, you can submit your roster online at any time. You DO NOT have to enter your roster online before entering tournaments. You DO NOT have to have team insurance before entering tournaments.

I highly recommend that once you attain signatures you make MULTIPLE COPIES of the signed roster. You will need to turn in a copy at each NSA tournament you participate in and it will NOT be returned to you. You will not be allowed to participate without a signed copy of the NSA online roster.
