USSSA Baseball is the FASTEST growing Amateur Baseball Association in the World!
USSSA believes the overall development of all players can be enhanced by the experience and fun of national tournament play. Until now the majority of players were denied this opportunity because of their skill level.
North Carolina USSSA Baseball offers programs for three (3) levels of play. (Note: The national USSSA has a fourth classification “A”, that is not played in North Carolina) Major and AAA programs are national programs that culminate in a World Series. The AA program is a regional program ran by the participating states that culminate at a National tournament.
The national participation of USSSA continues year after year to experience rapid growth throughout the program and it’s reflected in our Team Registrations and World Series participation. Last year, participation in USSSA World Series play was 4 TO 1 over any other brand of baseball. This translates to more teams to play, better competition in the teams you play thus making a better World Series experience. In fact, during the 2019 season, USSSA had over 3,150+ teams play in World Series events!

USSSA has Multiple Levels of Competition
With USSSA, teams of all abilities are not lumped into a single category simply because they are “Travel Teams”. Teams can designate themselves among several categories. By doing so they can play in tournaments with competition similar to themselves. This is particularly true for Regional and National tournaments. These are the team designations.
- “Major” is the designation of the most competitive travel teams. These are teams that compete regularly and often in contention to win any tournament they enter.
- “AAA” is the designation of the average travel teams. These are teams that compete regularly and often but are not often in contention to win most of the tournaments they enter.
- “AA” is the designation of entry-level travel teams and town or recreational teams that play a modest travel softball schedule.
- The cost to register your team online is only $65 per year. The USSSA year starts 8/1 and goes to 7/31. (Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 USSSA year has been extended to August 31st)
USSSA has many Post-Season Opportunities.
- State Championships: NC USSSA offers North Carolina State Championship events for 8U-14U.
