Frequently Asked Questions.
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.
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 staff for the USSSA All American Games tryout will be headed by professionals from the Premier D-BAT Baseball Training Academies and a Strength and Conditioning Coordinator from Major League Baseball, Kevin Barr.

The All American Games Assessment Data is meant to serve as a starting point of player development for each athlete. If something can be measured, it can be improved. This information will help provide each athlete, parent, & coach objective data for identifying areas of improvement to target for improvement.
The reports show the current age-average for each metric. Each athlete is in a very different place physically and this information needs to be treated strictly as an individual roadmap to improvement and should NOT be viewed as good or bad.
1 to 5 scores are % based on 5 reps for fielding, throwing, and hitting. The velocities and times are straight-forward. The current average for each metric for each age group is based on data captured at the events listed on the report. As more events are completed, you will continue to get updated reports.
