The player fee for the 2024 NAGAAA Cup remains unchanged from last year at $20.00. We are currently in the process of finalizing the way players will register and then pay the individual player fee. As soon as we have the details on that we will get it to you. It will be very similar to how it was done last year. 

2024 NAGAAA Ratings will be used

Team Rosters will be submitted via the NAGAAA database much in the way that rosters are submitted for the GSWS. This will be accomplished by your league representative that is responsible for your GSWS Team entries. The deadline for submission of rosters is 4/8/24. Late submissions, adding or dropping players, which would incur a fine until 4/15/2024. NAGAAA Cup Rosters are LOCKED on 4/16/2024.

The style-savvy residents of the country’s fourth-largest city know that there’s no place quite like Houston. With more than 2.2 million residents, the city attracts visitors and transplants with a wonderful mix of world-class arts, booming business, professional sports and award- winning cuisine. As the rest of the country discovers what locals have known all along, Houston is finally enjoying the recognition it deserves. National headlines citing Houston as a must-visit appear on the regular, calling the city "the New Capital of Southern Cool" (GQ magazine), and "the Houston dining scene is the most exciting it's ever been" (Food & Wine magazine). See for yourself, here in Houston, where much of daily life happens outdoors, thanks to mild, year-round temperatures. Take time to explore the eclectic, culture-filled neighborhoods, gallery spaces and attractions, which offer diverse flavors that can only be found here
