        Gift Exchange or Gift Swaps:
        There will NOT be a GIFT EXCHANGE or SWAP in the NSA World Series. We feel that many teams are just trying to stretch their budget to make the trip to the World Series and have found that the gift swap at their first game puts an extra burden on the teams.  We would rather you have freedom to choose how the extra funds can be spent.  Maybe share a pizza with a team you've just met?

        NSA World Series Scholarships

        NSA Scholarship Event:   NSA will be awarding six (6) $250 Scholarships on Opening Day!

        One player per age group (8u - 10u - 12u - 14u - 16u - 18u) will be selected by a blind draw. 
        All players participating at the NSA World Series are eligible for the drawing.

        One team name per age division will be drawn during the coaches meeting. Those coaches will then be asked to see us after the meeting to verify what players are participating from their teams. During the Opening Ceremonies a drawing for an individual player from each team selected earlier will be announced.

        Thank you for playing NSA.
