Roster Guidelines

1. Team roster must be on usssa.com.  Team roster must be kept current.  If roster goes below nine (9) players, your points accumulated will disappear until roster again reaches at least nine (9) players.
 
2. Players must meet age/classification requirements.

3. If a player is on more than one roster, all teams the player is rostered on must be the same classification.

4. All rosters will be LOCKED (defined below) the week of a team's first outdoor USSSA event or March 1, whichever occurs first. We are requiring teams to make sure their roster is current at that time.

5. A player must be on a USSSA roster to be considered a guest player.  A player not on another USSSA roster must be ADDED to your roster and is not considered a guest player. Guest players are NOT to be added to your online roster. You must complete the Guest Player Form, print out copy and turn in at tournament site.  A guest player can still be deemed an ineligible player via protest through site Tournament Director.

6. Rosters will be FROZEN upon World Series/National qualification.  Players can NOT be double rostered at this time.

7. Once a team's roster becomes frozen, the team will be allowed to have 3 adds and 3 drops to the permanent roster for the remainder of the season. Adds must have played the same or lower classification during the current season to be eligible. *This is for PERMANENT players only. If a team chooses to have a guest player for any USSSA event other than State/World Series/Nationals after the roster becomes frozen, they may do that by filling out an online Guest Player Form.


 


Here are a few definitions that are important to clarify:

FROZEN roster:  Once a team qualifies for Nationals/World Series, their roster will be frozen with the players that are currently on it.  At this time, teams will be allowed to make 3 adds and 3 drops to the roster between then and the end of the season (July 31st).   Teams will still be allowed to play with guest players in qualifier events, but at post-season events, they will be required to use their FROZEN roster.

LOCKED roster:  All USSSA rosters will be locked on March 1st.  Teams that are LOCKED are still able to edit their roster at any point, but they are required to go through their State Director to accomplish it.
