Background checks are required for manager and coaches who appear on USSSA rosters.
The cost of the background check is $13.50. Background checks must be submitted and cleared prior to entering a USSSA event. Managers must allow ample time to have the background check cleared. Please do not wait until the week of an event to take background check.
We are experiencing delays in our background check process across the country due to a variety of factors. All coaches should plan accordingly and request your background check early. If you submit a fully completed, error-free background check application on or before Monday we expect that you will be cleared to play the upcoming weekend. In the event your background check report experiences delays and is not finalized by our background check partner in a timely fashion, your manager account will be moved to conditionally approved allowing you to gain access to our platforms, build your roster and participate in events. However, clearance is not guaranteed, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.
USSSA Baseball has created a guest player program which will allow teams to add up to 3 players to their USSSA roster for a weekend event.
Starting September 9, 2020, all USSSA baseball players will only be allowed on a single team’s USSSA roster.
This means that even before the freeze date of 5/1/2021, all baseball players must be on only one team’s roster.
Teams may elect to add and drop players according to the USSSA Baseball rules, or they may elect to pick up players for a weekend as a guest player.
