Attention All 16-Under National bound athletes,  

In the past we have build a tradition on having one of you sing the National Anthem at the opening Ceremonies on Thursday night.  We can have one or multiple singers.  We have done both.  Please reach out to me if you are interested.  We will see you all next week.  Safe travels.

We have a volunteer.  Thank you Mississippi Valley Pride! 

Tom Bye:

All NAFA 16U Teams,

On behalf of NAFA Nationals,  Pat and I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you and to our host communities for a great week of fastpitch softball.  

We will again limit the field to 56 teams.  We will place 28 teams in the A pools and seed to the Gold bracket and 28 teams in the B pools and seed to the Silver bracket.

We are excited to see you all at the coaches meeting and check in on Wednesday night, July 26th at 7:00pm.  We will meet at Rice Creek Fields at the concession stand.

Please bring with you:
1. A signed roster (regardless if you mailed one in)
2. Gate fee of $200.00 made payable to MVSA.
3. Birth certificates or picture ID's (do not turn in though)
