USSSA Baseball Changes its Age Restrictions

USSSA Baseball will be adjusting its age requirements for all ages by adding a school grade exception. USSSA Baseball is constantly evaluating its program. Our goal is to stay in touch with the needs of the teams and changing our policies as needed. We strive to always make it easier to participate and in keeping with our motto, “More Kids, Playing More Baseball”. We will still have the same cutoff date for all ages, but will allow for grade exceptions. These grade exceptions will have restrictions also. This will be effective immediately.

NOTE: Birth Certificates and required for all players, at all times. If a player is participating using the grade exception, they will also be required to have a current report card on site at all games.

Here are the new age restrictions that will be updated in the rule book:
