2020 Nebraska USSSA Reclassification List for start of 2023.
click on your age group for information. (posted 8/11)
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 2022 season must start the 2023 season in the same classification (or higher) than they finished in the 2022 season unless moved by the State Director.
For purpose of classifications, if six (6) or more players from a 2022 team are on a 2023 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 2022 State Tournament will be moved up a classification to begin 2023. Teams that finished the 2022 season with 1100 Power Points will be moved up a classification to begin 2023 and if they finished the season with less than 500 Power Points they will be moved down a classification to begin the 2023 season. This is meant to be starting point only for the 2023 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 2023 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.
All Tournaments that have been approved and sanctioned with USSSA are now available on links 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. USSSA NIT's & Global World Series Qualifiers are now worth 300 points.

2023 Nebraska USSSA Season
2023 SEASON STARTS:
Aug. 16th, 2022
All teams must register with USSSA for 2023
to be eligible to participate in 2023 USSSA Events
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.
We are experiencing delays in our background check process across the country due to a variety of factors. All coaches should plan accordingly and request your background check early. 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.
We all work together to schedule games, schedule tournaments, develop players, and provide anything needed for ball players to play ball. It is now time we work together to find umpires to work the ball games!
We need to work together to recruit new umpires otherwise there will be many games with one or zero umpires. Each organization has a social media feed, website, and e-mail list. I am asking each of you on this e-mail to help share information below on how to become an umpire and when we can setup times to get umpires trained.
2) PSOA will send a contract and PowerPoint with information on what is involved in umpiring.
3) We have a new online course we enroll new umpires in this year through the website Ump App to help with quick rules education.
4) We offer on field training sessions to teach umpires proper mechanics, positioning, voice and signals. So far we have offered 14 of them this year.
5) We will help get umpires uniforms and equipment. If they cannot afford equipment/uniform we purchase the equipment up front and as they work games half game fees goes to paying off the equipment.
6) Last step is umpires sign up for games that fit their schedule. Games pay $35 (Rec Softball) up to $50 (Select baseball) This is on average $25 per hour for a wage/salary.
With our current staff there is no possible way we will be able to fill all games this season. Please help spread the word of to the target population that can help the most.
