Any Iowa Team reforming from the 2020 season must start the 2021 season in the same classification (or higher) that they finished the 2020 season unless otherwise noted in the 2021 Iowa Year Start Classification.
Background checks are required for manager and coaches who appear on USSSA rosters beginning on 9/1/2020 and required for the 2021 season.
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.
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.
