WELCOME TO NYSSA (NEW YORK SENIOR SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION)
NYSSA is an age 68 and older softball league.
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.
We currently have over 130 players divided into eight teams with 16-17 players on each team.
Double header games are played every Monday and Wednesday morning from April through September.
Three games each day are played at the three turf fields at Cantiague Park, Hicksville  NY.
An additional turf field will be announced soon for the 2018 Season.

Our league is comprised of players with varying abilities all of whom share one common interest-A 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 eight 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 they are limited by injuries and other health issues.
With the help of our wonderful sponsors we have many extra special days and events throughout the year including Mid and End of Season All Star Games, Media Day, Awards Luncheon, as well as Fall Snowflake Games and optional Indoor Winter Games.
Combining all of the extra special days and events with our 56 games Regular Season and our End of Season Tournament there is plenty of year-round softball action for even the most avid players.
All players who reside in New York State are welcome to try out to play.
WE ARE TRULY NYSSA IN EVERY WAY!
