GUIDELINES

New Season Classification Guidelines

Below is the guidelines as to where you should begin the new Season.  

If you are staying in the same age bracket (9U to 10U, 11U to 12U, 13U to 14U, and 15U to 16 is considered the same age bracket), these are the starting criteria for your classification:

  • If you were a C team the previous year, you must begin in B or higher.

  • If you were a B team the previous year, you must begin in A.

If you are moving up an age bracket these are the starting criteria for your classification:

  • If you were C team the previous year, you may begin in Class C.

  • If you were a B team the previous year, you must begin in B.

  • If you were an A team the previous year, you must begin in A.

In the event that your team does not remain intact and has turnover:

  • If you return 6 players from the previous season, you are subject to begin where your classification dictates.

  • If you return 5 or less, then you will be subject to begin in a classification based upon the players previous team.

In-Season Reclassification

Iowa team classifications are based on power ratings, tournament results and by overall team performance on the field.  Team classifications will be reviewed throughout the season to ensure we have teams in the appropriate class of play.  Please note that teams may be reclassified at any time by the Iowa USSSA Fastpitch State Office.
