Nebraska USSSA Baseball Classifications are based on Nebraska, and not on how they stack up against national competition.
Classifications are based on power ratings, tournament results and by overall team performance on the field.
The State Office will make classification adjustments during the 2014 season.
Undoubtedly, not everyone will agree with classifications. Any team wishing to appeal a reclassification may do so after playing a minimum of three USSSA tournament games after January 1, 2014 against teams in their classification. Once the results for these games have been posted to the USSSA.com system, a review will be completed to determine if the team is competitive at the new level.
The term "competitive" is and always will be subjective. A team that plays a little below or above .500 in any classification is competitive. A team that loses every game by one run is also competitive.
IMPORTANT: Do your part to help the accountability of the USSSA system. View the other teams in your classification age group. If you feel a team is not in the correct classification or don’t see a team that should be listed send that information to me. We will flag that team and watch closely. If we get several on a team we will adjust now and not go through the underlined appeal process above. Team Rosters must be online before we can review. Our goal is to get all teams in the correct classification and with you help we will. The class system of play works if you are part of the accountability mechanism. USSSA is the only organization in the country that can make class play work as it should and monitor it.
Teams may be reclassified at any time by the Nebraska USSSA State office.
Exciting news on USSSA Insurance
Team Insurance for the 2015 season
Nebraska USSSA Baseball encourages all USSSA baseball teams to purchase team insurance.
Only USSSA Registered teams may purchase this insurance.
USSSA team insurance covers the play and practice of amateur activities in the insured sport, including organized / sanctioned activities of other associations.
Accident Medical Coverage: $100,000 Limit - Secondary to any other collectible insurance; primary if no other insurance is in force.
Liability Insurance: $2,000,000 Limit - Lawsuits against players, coaches, sponsors, volunteers and league officials are increasing at an alarming rate. Play with peace of mind knowing you will be covered by one of the best sports liability programs available.
Beginning August 1, 2014 teams can now purchase team insurance for the 2014/2015 season that will give the team coverage for the entire season. Coverage will last from 8/1/14 thru 7/31/15. Teams may still purchase insurance for fall only at 1/2 price.
USSSA is rapidly moving to a national system that will allow all of our tournament directors the ability to post tournament results much quicker and insuring that all teams receive the points they have earned.
Part of this process is the necessity for teams to put their team roster online at www.usssa.com. For the 2015 season, teams cannot be entered into tournaments if their roster is not on-line. Players First and Last names must match what is on their Birth Certificate.
Before playing in any event please go to www.usssa.com and put your team roster online.
