USSSA Illinois will have State tournaments for ages 8U – 15U. The age groups will be split up into classes. Teams that play in the State Tournament will have the opportunity to continue on to a World Series. Teams will be seeded in the State Tournament based on USSSA Points, with the overall number 1 seed being the team with the MOST USSSA Points! The more points a team accumulates over the course of the season the higher seeded, and therefore easier schedule, that team will likely face in State Championship and World Series play.
