Tournament Entry Information
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 June 28th. The nationwide entry fee for the 2021 "C" Eastern National Championship will be $588.
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 "C" 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” Eastern National Championships. USSSA reserves the right to reclassify teams as we see fit for the betterment of the program as a whole.
"The 8U age group of the Eastern National Championships is a Rec All Star (Coach Pitched) Division."
Glen Warholic can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 and the “C” Eastern National Championships Tournament Director, 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 ($475 Flat Fee Payable Per Team)
Our gate fee is a less expensive and more convenient option than the typical per person/per day fee. We charge a flat fee payable per team. This one-time fee covers admission for team players, coaches and spectators to all parks, the opening celebration and any other activity directly in conjunction with this event.
All teams must register for the event through www.usssa.com and submit their team gate fee online. To do this, log in at www.usssa.com with your managers ID. Look at your team’s schedule, find the National Championships, and add the gate fee to your shopping cart. There is no gate fee form to submit this year.
This is a stay to play event. That means that all teams requiring overnight accommodations must stay a minimum of 18 room nights within the room block of a partnering hotel. The hotel housing service for the event has negotiated the lowest possible rate at each property for our teams and made them all available to you in a one-stop-shopping website for your convenience.

We are confident that a popular feature of the Eastern National Championships, will be that there are no cooler policies. 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.
