Below is the link of all current USSSA sanctioned events in IL and WI, with more to be posted shortly (more tournament directors are finalizing their schedules and will be posted shortly!). If a tournament or tournament director does not appear on the link below then the event is not sanctioned through USSSA (www.usssaillinoisbaseball.com). For 2015, the BOMC IL (Lisle, IL) will NOT be running USSSA Tournaments. New Tournaments to be Posted in Lisle, Wheeling, Naperville, and Arlington Heights area!
Look for MORE Tournaments that are Posted with Class Specific Ages! USSSA is the ORIGINAL and ONLY Tournament Sanctioning Body that classifies tournaments in order to allow for fair competition across all skill levels and has developed a unique system through the website that helps track these classifications in order to verify them and maintain accuracy. USSSA is able to do this because of the National Structure and tracking processes that are in place.
USSSA has started posting Double Point Weekends (April 10th-12th and May 1st-3rd for Illinois & April 26th-28th and May 15th - 17th for Wisconsin), State Tournaments (see below), NIT (National Invite Tournaments), Global World Series Qualifiers, and will host Post-Season Events, including CLOSER World Series and All-Star Events!
USSSA will be hosting the 6th Annual USSSA Tri-State All-Star Games and the 5th Annual USSSA Junior All-State Games. These All-Star Games are the ORIGINAL All-Star Games in the State of Illinois and the ONLY USSSA State level All-Star Games. There have been several companies that have tried to recreate what USSSA started several years ago, but do not confuse these All-Star Games with the ORIGINAL! This year, we will be adding new and exciting features to the All-Star Games. The Tri-State All-Star Games will be held in Schaumburg, IL (July 24th - 26th) while the Junior All-State Games will be held in Wisconsin Dells (August 6th-9th)! Stay Tuned for More Details!
