AT-LARGE QUALIFICATION

There are two processes by which a team can gain an At-Large USSSA Post Season berth:

  1. USSSA Points:  Teams can earn an At-Large by participating in USSSA events throughout the season.  If a team earns 150 Points through USSSA participation they will automatically be granted an At-Large Berth

  2. State Director Application:  A team can apply for an At-Large Berth with their State Director.  For a team to be given an At-Large Berth by their State Director, it is recommended that they accrue a minimum of 4 USSSA Event Credits.  USSSA Event Credits are earned by Stature of the event:

    1. League/One Day Shootout/Qualifier = 1 Point

    2. NIT = 2 Points

    3. State Championship = 3 Points   ​​​​

  3. For Teams located in an area without a State Director, they can apply to the USSSA National Championship director by emailing Kelly.Angus-Thorne@usssa.com.
