North American Scrabble® Players Association

Here is the mission statement of the North American Scrabble Players Association, quoted from their website:

We are a community of tournament, club and avid home players of the SCRABBLE® Brand Crossword Game. We foster an atmosphere for people of all skill levels to play their favorite game, improve their abilities and above all, meet people who share a similar love of the game.

Membership in NASPA is required to play in NASPA-sponsored tournaments.
