New Teams
Do all newly formed teams still have to register AAA?

'Supposed' to be that way.

Shouldn't you be allowed to register higher if you want? Why would ambitious times be discouraged?

"beantown", we're a new team for 2013' and registered as a Major Plus. You can register higher than AAA, but not lower.
I'm sure Sacramento will look at new team rosters to make sure they are classified at a level proportional with player ratings from previous season.

"New Teams" fall into one of two categories for initial rating purposes:

A team comprised of players 'new' to the SSUSA membership, i.e., initial player registrations, are classified as AAA for their first tournament. These teams may be re-rated after that event based both upon their performance in the event and Tournament Director recommendation after observing them play. (Exception: New Men's 40-Masters teams are initially rated as Major, since there is no AA rating in that age group)

A 'new' team comprised primarily of players who have been registered and played in SSUSA events on other team(s) will be initially rated based upon our analysis of the player history of those players. For example, a "new" team comprised of 15 players, 12 of whom played on Major teams in the previous one or two years, will NOT start as AAA. The same would be true if, say, 12 of those players only played AA in the previous one or two years.

This is a team of 15 with only 4 players that have played SSUSA tourneys. Many of the new guys have been playing in r senior league for a year and playing USSSA league and tourneys. We have 3 players new to senior ball. We acutally want to start AAA and move up. We have only played 4 games together in league. We have had 7 different players hit HR's at some time during the first 4 league games. We r trying to develop that all mighty chemistry. We have only won 1 game loosing to veteran senior teams. So their must be something to that chemistry thing.

Your original question was constructed generically, and, accordingly, so was our answer ... If you have a proposed Roster for this 'new' team, please forward it on the George at the SSUSA office for a review ... He should be able to accurately advise you pretty quickly as to your initial rating group ...
