Tournament Entry Information

Online Entry

To participate in the tournament, your team must complete the online entry through www.usssa.com and submit an online payment at that time.  Ultimately your registration in the tournament will be subject to approval by your state director.  Official entry and payment process must be completed no later than July 7th.  The nationwide entry fee for the 2017 World Series will be $578.

USSSA has established a classification system to try to provide a consistent level of play for teams of varying experience and skill.  In the interest of consistency with “C” level classifications, participation in this event is subject to approval by a team’s State Director as well as Glen Warholic, the Eastern National Championships Tournament Director. 

Teams are encouraged to seek this approval early, so as to avoid potential last minute acceptance or denial of entry into the event.  Participation requires the team to be "C" eligible at the point of entry and maintain that eligibility through the “C” National Championships.  USSSA reserves the right to reclassify teams as we see fit for the betterment of the program as a whole.

Glen Warholic can be reached at glen.warholic@usssa.com

Early online entries are encouraged as there is a maximum number of teams that can be accepted for each age division.

All team rosters must be on the USSSA website and must be the one that was in effect when your state director approved your World Series entry.  Any subsequent changes to your roster from that point is subject to state director approval, otherwise your entry may be subject to withdrawal.

All players participating in USSSA Fastpitch youth tournaments shall have proof of age in possession of their team manager at all times.  Proof of age must be verified by a government issued document that identifies the player by name, gender and birth date.

Team Gate Fee ($450 Flat Fee Payable Per Team)

Cooler Policy

We are confident that a popular feature of the Eastern National Championships, will be that there are no cooler policy.  In other words, aside from alcoholic beverages there will be no restrictions on the food or drink that teams bring to the park. However, teams will be responsible for supplying their own drinks in the dugout in order to keep properly hydrated throughout the event.  We ask that you keep the coolers to a respectable size (i.e. no large fishing coolers) and please patronize our concessionaires.
