RANKINGS

Team Rankings: Do not allow any SUSPENDED Players to join your team.

SANDBAGGERS BEWARE! - We will kick you out of our tournament if you're not playing in the proper division. Come Legal!

Please practice good sportsmanship... We take it very seriously!

THIS IS HOW WE LOOK AT INDIVIDUAL PLAYER'S CLASSIFICATIONS. PLEASE RANK YOURSELVES BASED ON THE FOLLOWING:

Rec = Newer players, not too much skill level (Mostly league-only players)

E = A little bit of skill and tournament experience

D = Competitive (some level of high school and/or college baseball)

B and C = Higher Levels

Open - The best of the best

(If you are a new good team to the sport and not sure what your team should be ranked, start at the D and contact us any time if you need help)


ADULT PLAYER RANKINGS

When ranking players, we will use the most recent NCS PLAYER PROFILE / TEAM RANKING. If a player doesn't already have a player profile on the NCS website or doesn't have a history of playing on an NCS roster, we will use the highest USSSA roster ranking from the past 3 years to determine what a player is ranked with us. If a player is not on a USSSA roster in the past 3 years, we will revert to the previous 3 years. 

TEAM MANAGERS - When adding a new team and adding players in the NCS system, please do your due diligence and check each one of your players in the USSSA website to make sure your players are ranked correctly. Just because they are new to NCS, does not make them an "E" player. If you feel the ranking is incorrect, please see our RECLASS PETITION directions below.

*** WARNING *** PLAYERS AND TEAMS WHO PLAY OTHER ASSOCIATIONS AND NOT NCS or USSSA, THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN SANDBAG WITH US.

For example... If you played USA/NSA/WSL "C", please enter in our "C" division.

IF YOU'RE NOT SURE ON YOUR RANKING, CONSIDER YOURSELF AS ONE CLASS HIGHER THAN YOU THINK YOU MAY BE

(Military, Black American, Native American and Senior rosters do not count against or for you our standard Adult Slowpitch program)

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO RECLASS A TEAM OR PLAYER AT ANY TIME TO KEEP THE INTEGRITY OF OUR TOURNAMENTS INTACT!!!

SENIOR/MASTERS PLAYER RANKINGS

When ranking players, we will use the most recent NCS PLAYER PROFILE / TEAM RANKING. If a player doesn't already have a player profile on the NCS website or doesn't have a history of playing on an NCS roster, we will use the highest SSUSA roster ranking from the past 3 years to determine what a player is ranked with us. If a player is not on a USSSA roster in the past 3 years, we will revert to the previous 3 years. If a team was legally reclassed, 


If a player is not listed on our NCS ranking’s list, we use the current year’s HIGHEST SSUSA or NCS team roster a player has played on.

If not on a current SSUSA roster we will revert to previous years highest SSUSA team player has played on.

AAA: 3 Major players max allowed on team roster (No MAJOR PLUS players, USSSA conference, B or higher players from the past or C or higher ranked players allowed)

MAJOR: 3 MAJOR PLUS players max allowed on team roster

MAJOR PLUS: No roster restrictions (Bring Your Best)


Determining your team level of play:

Any Conference Players in USSSA program may not play below the Major Plus division without counting as a Major Plus player.

Pro/Major,AAA,AA,A,B  adult players from the past - count as MP ranked unless otherwise noted on our rankings pages.

Any players ranked C or higher currently per our NCS adult rules/ranking system will be considered Major Plus.

55 & Over MAJOR PLUS players can play as a 40 & Over MAJOR Player but can’t play AAA – 50 & Over MAJOR PLUS players still count as MAJOR PLUS for 40 & Over teams.
