NSGA - A NATIONAL organization which sponsors bi-annual NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES in 18 sports—archery, badminton, basketball, bowling, cycling, golf, horseshoes, swimming, table tennis, track & field, triathlon, and VOLLEYBALL.  The next NATIONAL EVENT is scheduled in Houston, Texas, in 2011.  San Francisco, California, conducted the games in 2009.

TSGA – An affiliation of NSGA and the qualifying organization for the NSGA; events are sponsored annually in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Kerrville, Bryan/CS, and El Paso.  Individuals and teams participate at these sites to qualify for the STATE GAMES which are to be held in Houston in October 2010, which the 1st and 2nd place teams of each age group qualify for the NSGA NATIONALS.  There are 18 sports with additional recreational games in TSGA such as dominoes, washers, etc.  The STATE GAMES moved to Austin in 2005 for a 2 year period.

Huntsman World Senior Games - An annual event hosted in St George, Utah.  This is a very worthy organization of many sports open to the WORLD.  Volleyball games are scheduled in October.

TS/MV, Inc. - A VOLLEYBALL association (Registered Non-Profit Organization) created to compete and upgrade the play of volleyball, men and women, in TSGA, NSGA, and USAV.  TS/MV has 3 divisions, (1) JUNIORS (TJVA) ages thru 18; (2) MASTERS (TMVA) ages 30 thru 49; and (3) SENIORS (TSVA) ages 50 thru whatever.

The “SENIORS,” ages 50 years plus, well over  300 players, participate in  PLAY DAYS in Tyler, Arlington, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Lampasas, Waco, Jourdanton, Brownwood, Fort Worth,, and Dale.  Where are some of these places?  The “back roads” of Texas.  The play day fee is usually $10 and the play is patterned after USAV tournaments.  We have no membership fee.

Our organization is open for your participation.  Try us, maybe you will enjoy and make us a more successful organization. Some of us do not play great volleyball anymore; but, many still have a good time; and, at our ages, we forget the bad play quickly.  Please contact me if you desire more information.
