Frequently Asked Questions.

WHAT IS THE USSSA ALL AMERICAN PROGRAM?

The USSSA All American Program was established in 2011 with the aim of providing increased opportunities for baseball players to demonstrate their abilities and represent their local areas at a national event. The program creates an environment where young athletes aged 8U to 16U are evaluated by some of the top athletes and coaches in baseball through our All American tryouts. Athletes are evaluated based on their individual skill level and athleticism.

After the All American tryouts, the top athletes from each region will be selected to represent their region at the All American Games, which are held annually at the USSSA Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida. At the Games, the regional teams will compete against each other in a fun and competitive environment. The ultimate goal of this program is to provide a pathway for individual athletes to be evaluated and earn the opportunity to participate in a national event at the All American Games.

WHAT IS A USSSA ALL AMERICAN TRYOUT?
The tryout component of the USSSA All American Program is designed to identify the elite baseball players in the 8U-16U age divisions. All tryouts will provide each athlete with an equal opportunity to showcase their abilities in hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching/catching, and athletic testing. Players will be evaluated at two positions, primary and secondary. The All American Baseball Program will hold tryouts in six regions across the country: West, Midwest, South, Southeast, Southwest, and Northeast. Athletes will be placed in a region based on their hometown. Age groups will be determined strictly by the USSSA age calculator.
