Part of growing your skill and love for the game requires playing with players on a similar level to you. NSPA offers you the opportunity to earn an association color rating to make play fun and competitive.
WHY DO I NEED A RATING?
Some of our programs depend on having groups of players that are of like-skill and abilities. These programs are designed to challenge players of all levels. Receiving a NSPA color rating ensures you are not only challenged but are also having close and fun games!
HOW DOES THE NSPA RATING SYSTEM WORK?
NSPA uses a color designation for our members. There are six ratings colors that members can receive: YELLOW, ORANGE, GREEN, BLUE, RED, BLACK. As an association, we organize play based on these colors. When becoming a member, you automatically receive a rating of yellow. To join our organized play, legaues, and tournaments in the orange, green, blue, red, and black ratings, you will need to receive this rating at one of our clinics.
