Illinois Tournaments

  • All IL USSSA Tournaments qualify teams directly to the World Series. No other tournament progression is required except ALL teams must participate in an Illinois USSSA State Tournament. If they cannot participate in their own age level they may play in a higher age/class State Tournament. Teams may play in more than one State Tournament for more valuable National Ranking Points. Exception: No State Tournament is required to enter the Women’s World Series.
  • All teams must enter their team roster on the www.usssa.com web site upon registering for the new season and prior to entering a tournament. Teams were reclassified after the season based on your performance from this past season. Also, (New 2011) Class “B” teams are allowed up to 3 former Class “A” players. Note: Adding any “A” player to an already strong “B” team may result in a reclassification to “A” for the entire team. Class “C” teams are limited to 2 former “B” players and no former “A” players. (see Frozen/Locked Roster Rule or Team Classification for more detailed info) If you wish to appeal go to Team Reclassification and download the appropriate form and send to Gene Head. 
  • 43’ pitching distance for 13U/14U/15U/16U/18U & Women’s programs. 40’ pitching distance for 11U & 12U. 35’ pitching for all Coach Pitch & Machine Pitch & 9U and 10U programs.

(New 2013) 16U Class “A” and 18U Class “A” and “B” Teams ONLY – If you have a  problem scheduling your season to include the 3 required  IL USSSA tournaments if you are attempting to qualify under; At Large Berth, Tournament Host berth or qualified in the Fall/Winter for the  World Series.  You can still participate in the World Series if you participate in an IL USSSA State Tournament. We realize your weekends are limited due to Exposure Events and we want to be more accommodating. The 16A teams maybe also play in the 18U Open or Class “A” State Tournaments to fulfill this obligation. Note: This is not for the 16U “B” teams, only Class “A”.

Two designated weekends per season will be awarded Double Points. If this should be on a NIT weekend you will receive multiple National Ranking Points. 2015 Double Points weekends – TBA -  Double Points are not allowed in State Tournaments.
