Thank you for your interest in USSSA Baseball. USSSA baseball has nationally gained positive recognition due to the philosophy “MORE KIDS PLAYING MORE BASEBALL.” Adhering to the philosophy USSSA has designed four different classifications of play as well as a specialty program for “Recreation & Drafted Leagues.” This is how USSSA has effectively created opportunities for more kids to play baseball competitively at their level.
In November 1996, USSSA founded a highly anticipated and much needed program, USSSA Baseball. It registered over 1,000 teams in its inaugural season in 1997. The program also offered refreshing alternatives to the world of youth baseball.
In November 1997, USSSA reorganized to become the United States Specialty Sports Association, a multi-sport organization. Some of the divisions of USSSA include baseball, basketball, softball, flag football, softball, volleyball, and more. Today USSSA is the largest multi-sport association in the world with over 3.5 million members.
In the 2013 season, USSSA Baseball registered over 47,000 teams and over 25,000 Global Sports Baseball Teams (Up from 13,000 in 2012!).
By sanctioning a team, organization or league with USSSA that program will be entitled to receive All-Star Game Nominations, State tournament Berths, and World Series Berths. USSSA Baseball classification system helps fairly allow teams to participate in a competitive tournament each weekend, with all teams, regardless of skill, the ability to take home a trophy on any weekend.
Additional benefits, from the administration side, are the amenities that USSSA has to offer. Teams can find reasonably priced insurance for their teams, All-Star Weekends for Top Performers, and different opportunities and financial gains generated by hosting USSSA tournaments. Communities have seen tremendous increase in economic impact when USSSA events have been brought forth.
The philosophy of USSSA Baseball is simple. We strive to provide superior administration of a quality program that enables more kids more opportunities to play baseball at their skill level and have fun.
