USSSA Baseball uses the May 1st age cut-off. To determine your team's age, in all divisions, determine the age of your oldest player on April 30th, 2016 and that is the age your team should play.
All teams will be assured of a 4-game minimum. Teams will have 3-4 pool play games for seeding in to a single-elimination championship bracket. Most teams will play more than four games.
Pools will be seeded based on national qualifying points earned at our qualifying events and USSSA power rankings
Following pool play, bracket seed will be based on: (1st) Winning percentage in pool play; (2nd) Head to Head-All Played; (3rd) average runs allowed; (4th) Run Differential.
All national qualifying points earned during the regular Fall-Winter-Spring seasons and usssa power rankings will be used in making pool assignments. The teams with the most points/highest power rankings will receive the highest seeds in pool play.
