Welcome to NMSA!

The executives, coaches and parents all strive to make this organization achieve success.

2019 Rep Tryouts

Our Rep B teams provide an opportunity for girls to develop their balls skills to their full potential in a fun and positive environment.  We encourage our players to believe in their abilities and to challenge themselves to be their best every day.  The girls learn the value of working together as a team and the importance of every player’s contribution on and off the field.  Additionally there are many opportunities for the development and reinforcement of valuable life skills for the players on our Rep B teams.  If your daughter has a passion for fastpitch softball and is interested in a competitive, challenging, fun and rewarding experience, bring her out to our tryouts.
