Team Classifications

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 four competitive baseball classifications (i.e.; Major, AAA, AA, A).  Not all competitive classifications are available in all age divisions.  The higher the classification, the higher the level of play.

USSSA also offers one recreation classification (i.e.; All-Star).  Not all classifications are offered in all age divisions.

Many teams try to let a post-season 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.

The below is only a "Rule of Thumb" and could vary as much as +/- 10% per age division and / or classification.
.

MAJOR

The Major classification consists of the top 10% of teams in the state; these are the teams that should be pursuing the Elite 32 World Series.
.

TRIPLE A

The AAA classification consists of the next 30% of teams in the state and is designed for those teams which cannot attain qualification at the Major level.  If USSSA finds AAA teams consistently winning within the AAA class, we reserve the right (Rules Section 3.00) to elevate such teams to Major.
.

DOUBLE A

The AA classification consists of the next 30% of teams in the state and is designed for those teams which cannot attain qualification at the AAA level.  If USSSA finds AA teams consistently winning within the AA class, we reserve the right (Rules Section 3.00) to elevate such teams to AAA.
.

SINGLE A

The A classification consists of the next 30% of teams in the state and is designed for those teams which cannot attain qualification at the AA level.  If USSSA finds A teams consistently winning within the A class, we reserve the right (Rules Section 3.00) to elevate such teams to AA.
.

All-Star

The All-Star classification is for USSSA Sanctioned Rec League All-Star teams only.
