The conference series is designed to provide teams a seasonal goal of building points towards the USSSA World Championship.
USSSA Senior Softball and Senior Conference USSSA are designed to provide teams a seasonal goal of building USSSA Points. Points are awarded to member teams, based on their order of finish in USSSA events. No teams walks away empty handed by playing USSSA. Every team will earn points just by participating. The more USSSA Points teams have, the greater the opportunities they’ll have.
A team’s USSSA Points may be used for various purposes. A director may set up pool play matchups and/or a bracket by Points. A director may award prizes to Points Champions in a given state or region. The USSSA World Series WILL be set up by USSSA Points. In other words, you have a lot of incentives to play USSSA events and earn as many points as possible.
