Just an observation that I see over and over, from guys saying "they will be in a particular part of the country for a time frame and are looking to play or pickup on a team".

The rule is: ESPECIALLY, in the SSUSA WORLDS,SPA WORLDS, ISF WORLDS, ISA WORLDS.....SSUSA in Phoenix, AZ, you have to have "qualified with a team in a SSUSA qualifer, somewhere with YOUR TEAM, in order play in the "WORLDS". You need to live in a bordering state of the team u play on or in the state. You can't just show up get on a team. As a matter of fact, (example) if you live in Michigan and plan on being on vacation, business or just visiting in St.Louis, and there is a Senior tourney in St.Louis...u just can't show up at the tourney and play with anyone u want. (Oh sure, u could) if you get caught, the mgr. is suspended, you are suspended and possibly the entire team is forced to disband or disqualified from the tourney.

All of the Senior Organizations are pretty direct on the state bordering rules in order to play Senior Softball.

If someone needs to add or take away from my 2 cents worth...maybe they can clear up any other gray areas that NEW SENIORS may not realize.

Best of Luck on finding a team.

The only exceptions as I understand it - If a team from say Oregon is going to say Western and of the 13 players that have qualified with the team, only 10 are available to go. A guy in the same age and class from SoCal posts on the message board that he wants to come up and play. A qualified team that drops under 12 may add emergency players to get back to 12. Players must be legal (bordering states) and available (or released) for the age and class to be added. Player tagged individually M or M+ could not be added emergency to a AAA team. Beyond 12 adding can only be in the next up age group (60+ for a 55+ team) up to 15.

Same scenario for a CA team, OR player would not be legal because of the bordering state restriction on CA.

We were 11 going to Western. I tried to add one player not on a 55 roster, whose 50AAA team was not going to Western, to get to 12. He was tagged 55M individually and so could not be added. He could be added to our roster for the next qualifier and then go to worlds with us. This works because then SSUSA has an opportunity to see the impact in the qualifier results and could bump the team if appropriate.

Shane...I believe u are CORRECT on the "very small margin" for EXCEPTIONS..I had a SENIOR MOMENT on remembering those items!! haha...

Any team "ADDING SOMEONE",,,best, check the player out before u add him...save u a TON OF HEADACHES!!

Terry,Dave,Fran(SSUSA) and company..along with the other Softball orgs,Ridge Hooks (SPA) do a pretty darn good job of trying to make OUR GAME, "fair and safe" so we can all compete at a level of play...sometimes it doesn't seem fair but for the most part......ONE HECK OF A JOB by these people.....

Best to "everyone" getting ready for the WORLDS u choose to play in for 2011 coming up!!!
