Returning in 2016 with Adult teams, the National Softball Association is implementing a Player Number system. This system will allow players to register themselves to play on teams associated with the National Softball Association. The player's account, once created, will follow them from team to team, season to season, and allow everyone to keep better track of player history, player information, and give players the power to indicate what team or teams they are playing on recreationally and competitively.

If you have a player number already, please log in by following this link.

If you have not yet registered, click here to sign up as a National Softball Association new player.
