Classifications & Divisions
The USSSA Baseball program was founded on and has grown by the merit of its multiple classification system. Many organizations have tried multiple levels of play but USSSA is the only association that makes it work. USSSA offers three competitive (Travel Baseball) classifications (i.e.; Major, Triple-A & Double-A). The higher the classification, the higher the level of play. In addition, USSSA offers a Recreational League play classification (i.e.; Rec League). Not all classifications are offered in every age division (see chart below).

Many teams try to let a geographic area or tournament location influence which USSSA classification they try to play in. Regrettably, USSSA Baseball does not operate this way. Teams are required to play in the appropriate classification which best matches their ABILITY. Teams are allowed to play up in age and / or classification but never down.

Trophy Hunters & Sandbaggers

Since every team's ability is subjective, the State Office reserves the right pursuant to USSSA Rules to reclassify a team up or down AT ANY TIME which demonstrates a skill level and ability, which in the sole opinion and discretion of the State Office, is over or under qualified for a specific classification of play.

.

Trophy Hunting and Sandbagging shall not be tolerated in USSSA Baseball.Prevention of both acts is a TOP PRIORITY!It is the responsibility of EVERY team to monitor all other teams in their classification and report any possible violators to the State Office.Emails may be sent anonymously to ga.baseball@usssa.com.The State Office NEVER shares anonymous email information with anyone outside staff.
