2020 Nebraska USSSA Reclassification List for start of 2024.
click on your age group for information. (posted 9/10)
Nebraska team classifications are based on power ratings, tournament results and by overall team performance on the field during sanctioned tournaments.
Any team that is reforming from the 2023 season must start the 2024 season in the same classification (or higher) than they finished in the 2023 season unless moved by the State Director.
For purpose of classifications, if six (6) or more players from a 2023 team are on a 2024 team, they are considered the same team regardless of the TEAM NAME, MANAGER, COACHING STAFF or SPONSOR.
Any team that won or finished 2nd in the 2023 State Tournament will be moved up a classification to begin 2024. Teams that finished the 2023 season with 1100 Power Points will be moved up a classification to begin 2024 and if they finished the season with less than 500 Power Points they will be moved down a classification to begin the 2024 season. This is meant to be starting point only for the 2024 season. Teams that are in the "A" classification must email so we can move you to that classification.
The State Office and committee will make final classification adjustments around the 1st week of June each season. This should give team’s ample time to prepare for State and World Series. Please note that teams may be reclassified at any time by the Nebraska USSSA Baseball State Office or by the USSSA National Baseball Committee. Team's need to plan for State accordingly.
Undoubtedly, not everyone will agree with classifications. Any team wishing to appeal a classification may do so after playing a minimum of four USSSA tournament games against teams from their classification after January 1, 2023. Once the results for these games have been posted to the USSSA system, a review will be completed to determine if the team is competitive at the new level. Any appeal must be done via email to the State Office.
I would highly recommend that if you find your team in the (1100 to 1200) Power Point range during the 2024 season that you make sure to play tournament games in the higher classification to provide us information in making classification decisions. Otherwise expect a move up.
USSSA NIT's & Global World Series Qualifiers are now worth 300 points.All Tournaments that have been approved and sanctioned with USSSA are now available on link below. Any Tournament that is not listed below is not a sanctioned tournament and does not award USSSA Points or USSSA Power Points for our State Tournament or for any Post Season Tournaments sanctioned by USSSA.
The cost of the background check is $13.50. Background checks must be submitted and cleared prior to entering a USSSA event. Managers must allow ample time to have the background check cleared. Please do not wait until the week of an event to take background check.
If you submit a fully completed, error-free background check application on or before Monday we expect that you will be cleared to play the upcoming weekend. In the event your background check report experiences delays and is not finalized by our background check partner in a timely fashion, your manager account will be moved to conditionally approved allowing you to gain access to our platforms, build your roster and participate in events. However, clearance is not guaranteed, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.
2) PSOA will send a contract and PowerPoint with information on what is involved in umpiring.
3) We offer on field training sessions to teach umpires proper mechanics, positioning, voice and signals.
4) We will help get umpires uniforms and equipment. If umpires cannot afford equipment and or uniform, PSOA purchase the equipment up front and as they work games half game fees goes to paying off the equipment.
