NSSA - National Scholastic Surfing Association

The National Scholastic Surfing Association (NSSA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage and assist its members in their interest to learn and develop the fundamentals and skills of surfing competition while competing in structured and quality events. The NSSA promotes the qualities of discipline and competitive excellence while supporting the merits of academic achievement to young surfers. The NSSA strives to provide a fun surfing experience for all of its members.

The NSSA is one of the few national youth sports organizations that require its participants to maintain academic standards in order to compete. Since 1978, the NSSA program philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. More than 80 NSSA events are run nationwide that culminate with the annual National Championships which is regarded as the highest profile youth surfing event in America.


SOUTHWEST OPEN #2 POSTPONED

ATTENTION:

THE SOUTHWEST OPEN SEASON EVENT #2 HAS BEEN POSTPONED.   WE ARE NOT RUNNING IT THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND (OCT 9-10).   ALL ENTRIES WILL BE FORWARDED TO THE NEXT EVENT UNLESS YOU EMAIL ME AND TELL ME OTHERWISE gclifford@nssa.org

WE NEEDED THE EXTRA TIME TO BE FULLY READY FOR THE NATIONALS. 

DUE TO THE OIL SPILL IN HUNTINGTON BEACH, WE HAD TO MOVE THE NATIONALS TO A LATER DATE (NOV 16-23).  IN ADDITION WE WILL BE MOVING SOME OPEN SEASON EVENTS AROUND TO USE THE MONTH OF OCTOBER (WHICH IS NO LONGER DEDICATED TO THE NATIONALS) AND TO REPLACE THE ONE'S THAT WERE SCHEDULED TO SURF IN NOVEMBER (WHERE THE NATIONALS DATES ARE NOW RUNNING).

I'M WORKING ON SECURING DATES AND LOCATIONS FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKENDS THIS MONTH FOR THE SOUTHWEST OPEN SEASON.  I'VE CONTACTED THE BEACHES TO SEE WHAT IS AVAILABLE AND AM NOW WAITING ON ANSWERS.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AS WE NAVIGATE THESE SCHEDULING ISSUES.  

 I WILL GET THE WORD OUT AS SOON AS I KNOW.  BUT LOOKING FOR THE FOLLOWING WEEKENDS TO RUN THE OPEN EVENTS IN QUESTION:

OCT 16-17,  OCT 22-23 AND OCT 30-31
