ISSA LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE

The ISSA has launched a revised website using a new format which allows the ISSA staff to better manage the content. The site includes a fresh new look with an enhanced Photo Gallery and new group of videos. It is our goal to provide a user friendly website for the senior players and archive as much senior softball history as we can. We have encouraged the teams that enter our tournaments to send us any digital photos taken at our events for possible posting in the Gallery. Also new this year is the ISSA Team Registration online.

FROM  THE  DESK  OF  RB  THOMAS,  JR.

JUST A THOUGHT - As we all know, participation in senior softball brings with it the opportunity to meet many new people and develop long lasting friendships.  As we mature we come to understand more clearly the importance of friendships.  Friends help us think our best thoughts, do our noblest deeds and be our finest selves.  Count your age in friends not years.  Ann and I look forward to seeing all our "softball" friends at the ball park this year.
