The NSA Super Class was disbanded after the 2005 season.

The NSA Class-AA Worlds were held in 2006 and 2007 before being disbanded. The NSA tried to reorganize the highest class by holding Class-Open Worlds in 2009 and 2010. And Since had held or tried to hold a Class-A, Class-Elite amd/or Class-Platinum Worlds hoping to attract the big teams, but with restrictions on how many “Major” players allowed on a team, this never materialized into the NSA World Series as we knew it to be.
