Fast Pitch - Frozen / Locked Roster Rules
Frozen and Locked Roster Rules
Updated January 2016
A team must have their roster on the ISTS within a few days upon registration. All rosters must be verified by the State Office. Should any team without a roster on the USSSA web site enter a tournament they may be removed from said tournament by either the Tournament Director or the State Director. This will ensure the team is playing in the appropriate team/age classification. Rosters will remain unlocked up until March 1st, 2016. After that date, only the State Office will have access to make any changes to your teams' roster. You will be allowed multiple changes to your roster as long as the players meet the age/class requirements to play in that program.
Note: Any "temporary/borrowed" player(s) must come from the same classification of the team they are joining or from a lesser team classification of the team they are joining. You cannot add a player from a higher class team (i.e., An "A" player cannot be "borrowed" to play on a "B" or "C" team, but can be borrowed to play on an "A" team).
All rosters will be frozen on July 1 for those teams that have qualified for a National Championship. This also includes teams that qualified in the Fall and Winter months for the National Championship. After the July 1 date, teams are allowed to add or delete up to 3 players from their frozen roster. Any additions to your team's roster must be approved by the State Office.
The above new rules will make it easier for your team to play in USSSA tournaments and not have the restrictions that an early frozen roster can bring if you qualified for the National Championship months prior to the National Championship.
