NATIONAL RATINGS REVIEW • January, 2013
The following list reflects the semi-annual SSUSA Ratings Review Report, for January, 2013. There are 187 teams affected by this review; by far the largest number of team rating decisions ever.

The team rating changes are based on an an increasingly sophisticated and comprehensive team-performance review. Using the SSUSA computer Ratings/Results program that we developed, we have been able to review in-depth all teams for all games played in SSUSA events in recent years. We have also received recommendations from key National Ratings Advisors accross the country - and several managers. In addition, we have changed some key rules to make the divisions more competitive, which especially affected teams in the AAA division.
