Northern Virginia Senior Softball (NVSS)

EIN: 31-1767394

Mission Statement

Northern Virginia Senior Softball provides recreational slow-pitch softball for adult men and women, 50 years and older, to keep members active and engaged socially. Given the broad range of ages served, with members ranging in age from 50 to 80+, all members are assessed and assigned to one of three conferences based on their skills and abilities. The intent is for members to play with and against others of comparable capabilities. Every effort is made to keep the games safe and fun.

Program Summary

Our spring/summer season starts in early April and goes through the end of July. We play doubleheaders every Tuesday and Thursday morning with the first game starting at 9am.  Our two-month Fall season starts in September.  In August, there are no league games, but there are pickup games for those members who have no left town on vacation. Batting practice is provided on non-play dates. 

Impact Statement

Staying active keeps our members young and healthy. The twice-a-week doubleheaders gives them a reason to get out of the house.  Teams are reassembled every year to avoid cliques and dynasties, and to speed up the process of getting to know each other. During the off season, conditioning programs are available to keep members active and in softball shape. 

What ways can the public get involved?

Join!  NVSS is an all-volunteer organization.  Member volunteers create schedules, apply for permits, act as umpires, order equipment and t-shirts and so on. If you liked softball as a kid, you’ll love it as an adult.

How are charitable dollars spent? Where does my donation go?

Donations help pay for field permits, sports equipment, and uniforms.  NVSS has no paid employees.  We are an all-volunteer, small nonprofit organization serving more than 500 men and women throughout Northern Virginia.
