NVSS is a means to fun, fitness, and friendship, with an emphasis on safety and good sportsmanship. Slow pitch softball for seniors in Northern Virginia began in the summer of 1980 with 47 players. From that small beginning, Northern Virginia Senior Softball (NVSS) evolved and has grown to over 500 players on 25-30 teams in three skill-level Conferences. It is a not-for-profit organization with officers and directors elected annually by its members.
Membership is open to men 50+ and women 40+. All new players are given a skill-level assessment and are assigned to a team at their skill level. Two seven (7) inning games are played each Tuesday and Thursday, beginning at 9:30am. Every player present is in the line up to bat and must play at least three innings at one of the 11 defensive positions. The Summer Season runs from mid-April to early August and the Fall Season is September and October. All games are played on Fairfax County fields.
NVSS also offers to its members for a fee an off-season conditioning and practice program from November through early April at the Springfield Sportsplex, and a free 'spring training' conditioning program at the James Lee Center in Falls Church from February through early April.
You can join NVSS at anytime. To join just open and complete the application listed in the 'NVSS Forms' section or contact our Membership Chairman Ted Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-913-0028
