Teams earn points while placing in USSSA Tournaments. Teams accumulate points throughout the season. These points are used to seed teams in the State Tournament and also in USSSA World Series. The more tournaments a team participates in and the higher they place, the better seed for the State Tournament and World Series. Teams may also receive points for participating in USSSA Sanctioned Leagues.
DOUBLE POINTS WEEKENDS
Iowa USSSA will offer two weekends of tournaments where teams can double their points for placing.
STATE QUALIFYING TOURNAMENTS
Teams that participate in State Qualifiers automatically qualify to participate in the Iowa USSSA State Tournament.
USSSA NIT TOURNAMENTS
These tournaments are the top of the line in USSSA Tournaments. These tournaments usually draw more teams from surrounding states. Teams placing 1st or 2nd receive berths to the USSSA World Series. These teams must also participate in the Iowa USSSA State Tournament for the Berth to be valid. All teams that participate in a NIT automatically qualify to participate in the Iowa USSSA State Tournament. NIT Tournament awards much higher points then a State Qualifying Tournament or a World Series Qualifier.
GLOBAL SPORTS QUALIFIERS
Every team participating in a Global Sports Qualifier automatically qualify for a Global Sports World Series. Global Sports Qualifiers awards teams the same point structure as a USSSA NIT Tournament.
