|Jeppe Boy's High School is the newest team to qualify for MSSA's selection process.|
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) sets its National Squad Selection Date every year after every Annual General Meeting. Even though the date has not been set for 2021, all Registered Players should take note of the criteria that shall be used in 2021 for selection.
Selection shall only be held in periods/genres that are currently being played at a MSSA Provincial or National Championships, if such period is played in at least 30% of the Provinces. This applies to all disciplines and to all periods.
Thus if any game (period) is not played in at least 3 of South Africa's provinces, a team for such game (period) shall not be selected.

- A player is on maternity leave, or
- A player is on paternity leave, or
- A player is on compassionate leave, or
- A player is unable to obtain leave from his/her employer, or
- A player has valid financial reasons for not attending (being on holiday and thus not being able to afford to attend, does not count as a valid financial reason), or
