Congratulations on an outstanding season and welcome to the 2016 USSSA Global World Series.  Your host will do everything possible to create an experience that the players, coaches, and families will remember for a life time!  Teams do not enter the World Series with the host; entry MUST be done online at USSSA.com.  Entry deadline is June 30, 2016.  The World Series will be played at parks throughout Gwinnett, Newton & Walton Counties, July 5 - 10, 2016.

USSSA Baseball uses a pool play / bracket play format in its Global World Series. Teams will be seeded in pools by USSSA Points where they will play a round robin.  Following pool play all teams will be re-seeded into multi-tiered double elimination championship bracket based on pool play results.  The exact format, (i.e.; number of pools, quantity of teams in each pool, quantity of multi-tiered brackets, etc.), will be set by the Global World Series Tournament Director following USSSA Baseball Guidelines. Teams are guaranteed a minimum of six (6) games, weather permitting.

Teams securing a USSSA Global World Series berth must play in their State Championship Tournament to validate their Global World Series berth.  Contact your home state's 
USSSA Baseball State Director for complete details regarding the State Championship Tournament in your home state.
