USSSA hosts "C" and Rec/All-Stars divisions to provide competition where teams can enjoy a more balanced level of play.
The goal of the "C" & Rec/All-Stars Divisions is to provide an environment where teams can be introduced to travel softball, have an enjoyable experience, and develop as players. It is USSSA's hope that the team will, at a point in its future, move up in level of play. However, USSSA does not forbid a team from playing at these classifications if the team continues to fit the model for any length of time as a youth fastpitch team.
USSSA works to ensure parity and proper placement in the “C” Classification and the Rec/All-Star Division. To do so, USSSA East utilizes a classification committee to review each prospective team. Our committee is led by Chairman, Glen Warholic (firstname.lastname@example.org).
By definition, Rec/All-Star teams are comprised of players who play in house recreational leagues and are focused on the fun, introductory side of softball. USSSA offers a few of these events later in the summer to allow these teams to compete against other similarly comprised teams and experience a taste of “travel ball”.
Teams MUST apply for placement in the “C” or Rec/All-Star Divisions.
