OUR **FACEBOOK PAGE** IS USSSAHIGHSCHOOLBASEBALL
IMPORTANT - ALL TEAMS SHOULD REGISTER AA (RECOMMENDED) - All Teams may play any regular season tournament at HS ages so register AA to allow free entry (HS class has nothing to do with competitive level until possibly state tournament time when records would determine class). If you plan to have a team at 15u or up please register your team for 2015 as soon as possible . That will help us to locate the right ages at venues best for everyone !!
IF YOUR SCHOOL IS INTERESTED IN HOSTING A USSSA HIGH SCHOOL TOURNAMENT EMAIL US - DATES AVAILABLE ARE LIMITED
YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO HAVE A ROSTER ONLINE at 15u and above to enter tournaments ** REGISTER EARLY FOR THESE EVENTS. YOU CAN POST A ROSTER LATER, AND IT MAY BE CHANGED FREELY THRU THE SEASON. We may add tournaments if these look to fill up early, but dont count on that - enter as early as you can. When searching always either come here (safest way) or at usssa.com be sure to enter your age AND your classification (Elite or AAA) - do not choose Open or you will miss classed event listings - Open will show if you choose your classification.
Balls Supplied by participating teams: Most regular season tournaments are hosted events. We keep our HS entry fees at some of the lowest in the country. TEAMS provide baseballs at all events unless otherwise noted. This eliminates the impossible logistics of getting balls to HS fields all over the state, and allows us to keep fees as low as possible. Provide 1 new and 1 excellent condition or 2 new balls to the umpire to begin each game. More will be requested as needed through the game. Balls in the umpire's possession will be returned at games end.
> REGISTER YOUR TEAM WITH USSSA ONLINE NOW click here < ** REGISTER FOR 2015. We will have 15u, 16u and 17u AAA or Elite in 2015 (we recommend all register AAA to allow you to play in any as all our tournaments are for all teams - DO NOT REGISTER AA, The HS Program is getting away form AA in favor of a 2 class system). If you registered in any previous year click the Log-In tab and use the same ID and password to keep your history in tact. You do not have to enter an online roster at 15u and above until the world series or National if you are going.
BAT RULE: THE RULE REQUIRING BBCOR OR WOOD APPLIES TO USSSA PLAY ALSO

A note about the dual (age & grade) HS classification system: 2015 SEASON school class means 2014-15 school year and age cutoff is April 30, 2014. See older players meeting Grade eligibility below.
15u-Freshman means all 15 or younger on April 30 (any grade including the sophomores with May + bdays) AND all Freshman who are 16 and younger on April 30 are legal to play on the 15u-F team. All other age / school classes work the same way- meet age OR school class (up to 1 yr older). If the system does not allow you to enter the birthdate of a 1 year older player, who is in the proper school class for your classification (says he's too old), enter them with a 1 year earlier birthdate. You must have a copy of his school record like report card with that player's birth certificate. Of course younger players may "play up" and can be on more than 1 team in doing so. Always bring birth certificate copies, and school records on older legal players, to tournaments in case they are requested or a protest occurs.
ALABAMA HS 50% RULE
Misunderstanding the AHSAA 50% rule seems to come up every year. THERE IS NO 50% RULE applied to independent "travel" teams playing USSSA games in the summer while school is out. The rule PLAINLY states it applies DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR. Any confusion because of the summer camp clause - travel team league or tournament games ARE NOT camps and AHSAA is very clear they ARE NOT and are NOT subject to the 50% rule, so long as no school coaches are coaching the teams. You can play with 20 from the same school during summer recess if you want. This is not Maybe, or we think, it has been checked out with AHSAA and it's the facts ... period. If anyone tells you differently they are Wrong. It does apply during the school year until summer recess , including fall. No more than 5 players making up a team in any week who will be on the same HS team in the school year. Here is the actual rule from the AHSAA site:
(B) FIFTY PERCENT RULE: Participation (includes practice) during the
school year on a non-school team outside the school season by students
that will play the following season on the same high school varsity or junior
varsity/B-team (grades 7-12) is limited to 50 percent of the number of
players required to play the game (i.e., three in basketball, six in soccer,
five in baseball, etc.).
