Hello PSSA friends, family and supporters. If you haven’t heard there is a small fundraiser for the Wings Fund PSSA called PINS FOR PSSA. A PSSA member has designed this one of a kind enamel pin to help raise funds for those in need within the PSSA organization. There is one final push to sell the pins before summer hits full swing and they take a break for a bit. There is a flash sale going on for the final two weeks and the pins are limited. Go get yours today for a great deal at www.pinsforpssa.com !
Based upon the current situation, the board spent most of the meeting last night working through what a continuation of our spring season in the fall would be. Bear with me as this may be a long email, but we are relaying a lot of information at one time.
First, every member from the spring season will have a decision to make concerning playing in the Fall or not. Each member must declare their intent for which of the 4 options below they would like to implement by 5 PM on July 31st, 2020 via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next, The Fall season will essentially be its own stand-alone season with the typical structure we use in the Spring. Teams will form themselves and we will follow all Spring 2020 rules with the following exceptions:
Finally, the league reserves the right for additional changes to all of this as the situation continues to evolve. Dates are slow to be set right now as the city is not in a position to make any dates firm at this time. We are working closely with the city to set our schedule as soon as we possibly can.
If you wish to see the results of the survey, they can be found on below.
Thank you and I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
Due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, NAGAAA has made the difficult decision to cancel the GSWS in 2020. This impacts the future schedule as well, with Columbus shifting back to 2021, Dallas to 2022 and Twin Cities to 2023.
NAGAAA has provided an FAQ concerning their decision that can be found below. In addition, their announcement video has been posted to PSSA's Facebook page.
Teams subject to the no repeat rule from their placement in the 2019 GSWS will be subject to those rules for the 2021 GSWS as it will now be the next GSWS played.
This also means, PSSA will not be hosting a qualifying tournament in 2020, but we look forward to restarting our softball season and seeing our softball family again in the fall.
Please reach out with any questions.
