The USSSA All American Program was created in 2015 to increase individual opportunities for fastpitch players to showcase their skills and represent their local area in a National event.
The All American Program creates a pathway for individual athletes to earn a way to a pinnacle, National event — the All American Games. Athletes ages 9 to 14 can earn their way to the All American Games via our All American Tryouts hosted throughout the country. Athletes will be evaluated at each tryout by professional athletes and/or coaches and then will be selected based on those evaluations to represent their Regional Team in the All American Games hosted annually at USSSA Space Coast Complex in Viera, FL.
The six regions across the country are the West, South, Midwest, Great Lakes, Southeast, and Northeast.
The USSSA All American Fastpitch Program will host various tryouts throughout six regions across the country. All tryouts will allow each athlete an equal opportunity to showcase their skills in the following categories.
- Athletic testing
Participants will be evaluated on their primary and secondary position only. Evaluations will be conducted by professional fastpitch players and trained coaches.
Registration can be done online for $150 prior to the event or as a walk up at the field for $200. Online registrations will close two full days prior to the event start time or once the event has sold out.
REGIONAL TEAM SELECTIONS
After the tryouts are completed, the top athletes will be selected to represent their respective region in the All American Games. Here is how the Regions will be divided: 9U & 14U Divisions
The top 26 athletes will be selected to represent their respective region. These 26 athletes will be split into two teams of 13 for that respective region, creating two teams per region for 9U and 14U.
The top 39 athletes will be selected to represent their respective region. These 39 athletes will be split into three teams of 13 for that respective region, creating three teams per region for 10U/11U/12U/13U divisions.
At the conclusion of each tryout we will be identifying the top performers in each age group to be named as a “Direct Invite”. Direct Invites will be released once results are posted for that specific tryout event. All “Direct Invite” players will earn an automatic berth into the All American Games.
All Direct Invites (grad year 2021-2026) will also receive an automatic invitation to the Select 30 National Training Camp.
REGIONAL TEAM ANNOUNCEMENTS/SELECTION SHOWS
Each Regional roster will be publicly announced on our USSSA All American Selection Show which will be aired on www.USSSALive.com. Athletes and parents will not be notified prior to the airing of the Selection Show. Following the announcement, participants will be given 72 hours to accept a position on one of the regional USSSA All American Teams.
