2020 Youth Sports Season Extended to Aug. 31

To: USSSA State Directors

Subject: 2020 Youth Sports Season Extended to Aug. 31

We hope all is well with the entire USSSA membership, considering these extraordinary circumstances, and that you are staying safe and healthy.  Everyone has had to make adjustments recently.  Please know we are hard at work here at the USSSA National Office, so we will be ready to kick-start all operations and events once we are assured the coast is clear to return to everyday life.

2020 Season Extended

After lengthy consideration, the USSSA National Office has decided to extend the 2020 season for all USSSA youth sports that have an original season end date of July 31, 2020.  We are extending this season by one month, through Aug. 31, 2020.  This will give every team as many as five extra weekends in August to still fit in events as part of the 2020 season.

USSSA State Directors all over America are beginning to add August events to their 2020 schedules, where possible.  Event opportunities may vary by locality, based on variables such as facility availability, and all decisions to add events rest with the local Directors, who individually must weigh their local options regarding more events.  Please know that everyone is working hard to explore additional event opportunities and secure the facilities needed to bring back the crack of the bat and the pop of the glove across this great country of ours.

Also important to know:

  • The process for teams to register for events remains unchanged, and all events in August 2020 now will be considered part of the ’20 season.
  • The 2021 season for USSSA youth sports is now scheduled to begin on Sept. 1, 2020.
  • With the one-month shift in the 2020 season, player age requirements also have shifted by one month.  Any player who would have aged up on Aug. 1 will now age up instead on Sept. 1 and will remain eligible to play at the age you are playing today.
  • Please Note: Soccer is also allowing an extended season for it’s member leagues, clubs and teams. Due to USSSA’s affiliation with the U.S. Soccer Federation, our soccer members should follow the steps and procedures in the message sent earlier today and posted at; www.usssasoccer.com

Team Insurance Also Extended

Also in conjunction with the extension of the 2020 youth sports season by one month, USSSA team insurance is being extended for one month – until 12:01 a.m. on 9/1/2020.  For any team with a current USSSA Team Insurance expiration date of 8/1/2020, the expiration date for that coverage is being revised to 9/1/2020 and no premium will be charged for the month of August 2020.  Your team certificate will be updated automatically and available on your Team Management page at www.usssa.com.

If you have any questions about any of the above developments, please contact your Director.

Again, everyone please stay healthy and safe.  We all cannot wait to take the field again.  And when the time comes, let’s all be ready.

Take care,

Donny DeDonatis III

USSSA Event Sanctioning Temporarily Suspended

To: USSSA Membership
Subject: USSSA Event Sanctioning Temporarily Suspended
In light of the most-recent federal recommendations regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), USSSA has made the difficult decision to suspend the sanctioning of events in the United States and Canada until further notice.
Effective tomorrow, March 18, 2020, at 5 p.m. EDT, USSSA’s revised sanctioning policy will take effect. At that point, in accordance with USSSA’s bylaws, no events will be sanctioned until further notice. This is for the health and safety of our players and our tournament personnel.
USSSA will evaluate this decision weekly and determinations of when to resume sanctioning in each area of the country will be made in conjunction with state directors and their local government agencies.
During this time, we ask our membership to exercise patience and understanding as each of our directors works diligently to administer this policy and coordinate rescheduling efforts at the local level. Please remember that all of our state directors are independent small businesses. As dedicated leaders with intense passion for the sports we all love, they can appreciate the impact this decision will have as much as anyone else.
In the meantime, USSSA will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving coronavirus situation. Should the guidance change, we will take appropriate action and notify our membership immediately of any further sanctioning adjustments.
Should you have any questions regarding an event in which you are registered to participate, please contact the event director or your state director for information on possible cancellation or rescheduling that could affect your team.
We look forward to facilitating the return of sanctioned competition for all as soon as possible.
Please take care,
Donny DeDonatis III
Chief Executive Officer

FOR STATE DIRECTORS
 
Manual Team Registrations – DC2.usssa.com
 
We will be turning the manual Team Registration component on DC2 today for directors. 
 
Adult Sport Manual Registrations
This process will continue exactly as it was previously.
 
Youth Sport Manual Registrations​
 
For all youth teams created through this portal (manually entered or uploaded via Excel sheet) the current process is that they will be required to verify their background status in the same manner as all other new teams created.
 
Once the upload process is completed, the team and manager information will be stored.  A check will be done to determine if the manager has submitted this information previously.
 
The Manager has NOT verified previously.  What happens now?
In this instance, the Manager will be sent an email with their username and password.  It is critical that the email entered at the time of registration is accurate and will reach the user.  The manager will be asked to log-on to their account and provide the verification check. 
 
Here is what the manager will see at the time of log-in:
Once the manager updates the verification, their teams will appear in the management section, thereby completing their registration.  The teams will be available for insurance, roster management, and event entry.
 
 

The Manager HAS verified previously.  What happens now?
 
In this instance, the team(s) will be created and available immediately for usage.
