The USSSA Fastpitch program will use a four-game format for the “C” divisions in this National Championship Tournament. Teams will be seeded into pools based on current USSSA ranking points and play a round robin. All teams will be seeded into a double elimination championship bracket following pool play. Seeding will be based on pool finish. The exact format of the tournament, e.g., number of games, number of teams in each pool, etc., will be set by the tournament director following USSSA Fastpitch guidelines as approved by the USSSA Fastpitch National Committee.
Below is a brief overview of the day by day schedule for this tournament:
Schedules will not be mailed out in advance per national policy. The pool play and double elimination brackets will be given to coaches during the Manager’s Check-In. Player, coach and other pre-tournament items will also be distributed at the Manager’s Check-In.
Note that all times are subject to change. Please verify itinerary during the Manager’s Check. Once the tournament begins, managers must check the main bracket board and/or online schedule for any changes in game times, field assignments or other items related to tournament play or functions.
