ISSA Heads Into Summer With a Full Schedule
20 Jun, 2016
The International Senior Softball Association is heading into its summer season, with plenty of action. Here are the ways to get involved.
15th ANNUAL ISF SENIOR WORLD CUP - The World Cup will again be played on the fields in the Roanoke Valley on June 22-26. The popular "national championship" tournament filled up early....over two months before the opening day. This year the 70 & Up men's and women's teams will begin play on Wednesday. All others will play on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The event currently has 96 entries and reached capacity over two months before the tournament date. Teams wishing to play should email the ISSA to get on the waiting list.
2016 ISSA CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES - This year the ISSA Staff will be holding 24 senior tournaments around the United States. The next four tournaments have all reached capacity early and closed. Current entries in many of the future tournaments this year point to the high probability that they too will close early. Teams are encouraged to submit the online entry form for all ISSA tournaments in which they plan to play this year. The new entry registration system allows teams the opportunity to reserve a place in each tournament and submit the entry fee later by the published deadline. For instance, the 22nd ISSA World Championships in August in Northern Virginia already has over 60 entries. Anyone needing assistance with the online entry process should contact ISSA's Greg Thomas.
