Iowa team classifications are based on Iowa USSSA Baseball program and not nationally. 

 

Iowa team classifications are based on power ratings, tournament results and by overall team performance on the field.

 

Any team that is reforming from the 2013 season must start the 2014 season in the same classification (or higher) that they finished the 2013 season unless otherwise noted in 2014 team classification.

For purpose of classifications, if six (6) or more players from a 2013 team are on a 2014 team, they are considered the same team regardless of the TEAM NAME, MANAGER, COACHING STAFF or SPONSOR.

 

The State Office will make final classification adjustments by the 1st of June of each season.  This should give teams ample time to prepare for State and World Series plans.  Please note that teams may be reclassified at any time by the Iowa USSSA Baseball State Office or by the National Baseball Committee.


Major Classification
Top 5% - 10% of the teams in the state. 

Best teams in the state

Can Compete with Major teams in region.

 

AAA Classification

Upper middle 20% - 35% of the teams in the state. 

Traveling teams

Tryout teams

 

AA Classification

Lower middle 30% - 45% of the teams in the state. 

Limited travel schedule

A Classification

School teams

Limited playing schedule

Local tournaments

 

Drafted League Classification

Teams formed from drafted leagues.

Little League teams

 

Undoubtedly, not everyone will agree with classifications.  Any team wishing to appeal a reclassification may do so after playing a minimum of eight USSSA tournament games after January 1, 2014 against teams in their new classification.  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. 

 

The term "competitive" is and always will be subjective.  A team that plays a little below or above .500 in any classification is competitive. A team that loses every game by one run is also competitive. 

 

IMPORTANT !!
Do your part to help the accountability of the USSSA system.  View the rosters of the teams in your age division before you play them to make sure that they are compliant with roster rules.  Tournament Directors are also being told this is a requirement of them hosting USSSA events now.  The class system of play works if you are part of the accountability mechanism.  USSSA is the only organization in the country that can make class play work as it should and monitor it.
