VIRGINIA BEACH, VIRGINIA – Many players on Masters and Senior teams got the chance to experience playing softball at the beach at the ISSA Winter Nationals last October. Again in 2009 the senior players will get to Experience the Fun at Virginia Beach, on and off the field when the Winter Nationals return on October 2-4, 2009 City officials, the ASA Tidewater District staff and the ISSA staff will again team up to host this exciting event. This world-class resort city recently completed a new 8-field state-of-the-art softball complex which will supplement other nearby quality fields to accommodate the Senior and Masters teams expected to participate.
Competition will be held for Senior women’s teams from 40 and Over to 65 and Over. All age classifications and skill level divisions will be included for the Senior men’s teams. Men’s Masters competition will be scheduled for 35 and Over, 40 and Over and 45 and Over. And a new division of play for ISSA will be a 35+ Coed Division. The Winter Nationals will permit players who are eligible for an age division in 2010 to compete in this October tournament. Teams can use this tournament to begin the process of putting their tournament team together for 2010, a concept that many senior teams find helpful.
Deadline for entries is September 15, 2009. Teams planning on participating should email the ISSA Office now and then submit the entry form, roster and fee by the 15th. A list of teams that have expressed their plan to enter is found on the ISSA website at www.seniorsoftball.org Tournament Fact Sheet and Lodging Information can be found on the website also.
