- 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) 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.
