Slo-Pitch National Championships
To qualify for SPN Nationals (mixed, men’s or women’s) , your team must finish first or second in a sanctioned SPN qualifier tournament. Once your spot has been clinched you and your team will want to confirm who is interested in going to nationals, funds, and confirm what division and series(mixed only) your team would like to play.
The NWT is part of SPN Mid-west Region and all competitive Slo-pitch teams must be registered through SPN if they would like to qualify for SPN National tournaments. Given that the NWT falls under the Mid-West region, should your team win a qualifier tournament you could be able to pick up players which are Alberta residents.
We may have a short ball season in the North but that does not mean the season isn’t anything short of amazing. Almost every other year we have been able to support qualifying slo-pitch teams to compete in SPN’s National tournament.
