We will begin seeding from the top into divisions of play.  Bracket will be filled to a 16 team maximum.  Once a division is filled to a 16 team maximum, the next division will begin being populated.  The lowest division of each age group may have more or less than 16 teams based on the total number of teams.

Teams will play 2 Pool Games and then will be seeded into Bracket Play that will play out to determine the tournament Champion. Below is the sample of the 16 team Championship Bracket. 

TOURNAMENT FORMAT - B/C/8U

Because of the continued growth of the State Tournament, we will be forced in some age/divisions to split the State Tournament into multiple State Tournaments. These divisions will be split using the USSSA Point + Power Ratings seedings.

For seeding, all teams that do not play at least 10 USSSA tournament games or USSSA league games could be moved up one division for all split state tournaments and could be moved to the highest division for that Age/Class.
