Step 1:  Determining your team's classification

USSSA offers four levels (classifications) of play (i.e.: Major, AAA, AA, A)

 

TEAM CLASSIFICATION GUIDELINES

Any team that is reforming from the PREVIOUS season must start the CURRENT season in the same class that they finished the PREVIOUS season.  If six (6) or more players from a PREVIOUS roster are on a new team, that team must classify as the PREVIOUS team's classification.

The guidelines below are to help determine your classification.  The ultimate classification is determined by the overall strength of the team.  Teams may be reclassified at any time by the Iowa USSSA State Office.  Teams must play in at least the same division as they finished the previous season if not the next higher classification.

MAJORS - The top teams in the State
AAA - Tournament Teams - Competitive teams
AA - Teams that restricted rosters, drafted players or play at the recreational level, normally league teams.
A - Drafted League teams and recreational teams.
