Discussion: Renewal of ID cards.

Simply question, since a lot of teams may not play this season because of the virus and the stay at home orders in some of the states, do we have to pay for a new card in 20201 since we didn't use it in 2020. Just asking a question. How do other feel about this?

Discussion: California Tournaments

Is SSUSA going to wait & see before we send our money to SSUSA for the tournaments in California? Or do we sent it in now, not knowing if there is going to be a tournament as California which has a stay at home order in place. Need to know now so that my team can make hotel reservations.

Discussion: Reno 60's tournament

Beware, as all California city parks are closed, this tournament was a tentative tournament awaiting the states and city's decision if they open any parks in June. All California rec parks are still close until the governor and mayor open their respective parks. We were going to get into this tournament until I was told just wait and see what the governor was going to do.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

Well guy the governor of Nevada didn't state that the parks are closed", but he did say "There must be less than 10 people in a group". So I don't know what SSUSA is going to do, I wish that they would let us know ASAP to make arrangements for Reno. We are ready to play. 2 teams make up 20 people.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

Real deal, could be right because of 60 yr olds are still working and even some 65 yr olds are working I might be late in agreeing with you but yes, I think this tournament should be moved back a month or two. I know it's all about field availability but If something can be worked out. I know this is last minute and all of the people at SSUSA have been working hard on this tournament, but instead of a pressure to get this tournament done, SSUSA should be right to take it's time to see the whole picture to better make this a great tournament. Just my thoughts.

Discussion: Reno Tournament

I know a lot of us are ready to go out and play ball. I think instead of starting rumor of this or that happening in a city that a tournament is schedule to be held that we relax a little and wait until SSUSA tell us if a tournament has been cancelled or continued. We a managers as I am a manager of a 65 team am waiting to play just like the rest of you. We have signed up to play in Reno, but I have as well as SSUSA don't have full control of what tournament will continue and which ones is cancelled. SSUSA as well as all must wait. We have no control over this virus and the government. All I say is please be patient with this and don't start rumors as it is hard enjoy for SSUSA to decide as to what to do. It's a lot of work to set up a tournament, yet alone to make adjustments to one if you are limited in a short time frame.

I want to thank Dave and all the people at the Auburndale Sport Complex for the great job that they did. Fields were always ready to go, games on time, umpiring was great, you guys couldn't have put on a better tournament. The teams were great. Weather was great. We hope to be back next year. Again thank you for putting on a great tournament, all winning teams should come to this tournament. By the way, all team member should see the Wounded Warriors team. they are super players. It was a honor and great to play against them.

Discussion: 65AAA National Championship Game

I read the rule that you showed and it states that the National champions would get all the award of a National champion, not a secondary award but a first place award. Per the rule book. I hope that SSUSA does not award a lesser award to a National champion just because the other team didn't show up. I hope that you are in agreement with this.

Discussion: WHY IS IT HARD TO GET A RESPONSE

I have e-mailed SSUSA a number of time with questions that I've had and their response has been very quick and understandable. They have explained thing to were I understand and if I didn't they would instruct me to call the office an ask for the person who would have the answer.
These people don't just sit on their butt, they work like all the rest of us. If you only knew how much they have to do with the staff that they have you would better understand. They are a few staff member, but their are thousands of softball players with question. Please give them time to response.

Want to say great job by the SSUSA director and staff at Golden Eagle complex. You ran a great tournament, games on time, weather was good for the most part, until the rains came. Officials were great also. The competition was very even, games were close. You couldn't have asked for a better tournament. Great job to all.

Discussion: AA bracket

So what you are saying is that the AA teams not a strong as AAA when so of the AA teams beat AAA teams in seeding games. So in a seeding game, is not used for strength of a team?

Discussion: AA bracket

Why is SSUSA still having AA brackets? I thought that SSUSA was going to do away with the AA Division and move them up to AAA. The Reno tournament has only have 2 teams which really doesn't make a difference as to who wins or loses. But to mix them up with the AAA bracket kinds of messes thing up for the AAA teams. I think that SSUSA should really look at removing the AA teams and move them up to AAA. A new team that comes into the tournaments must start at AAA and not AA. In the major tournaments I think if there are more than 4 teams in AA that they should have a bracket of there own. If not they should play AAA. Just my thoughts, AA is only a fun bracket with really no serious thought of winning because teams that play know the will place lst or 2nd because AA don't play in the big tournaments.

Discussion: 50 AAA

For teams and players that play SSUSA softball tournament I want to say this. Our teams goes to these tournaments to win, regardless of who we play. We know that some of these teams should be in a higher division, but still we pay a lot of money to enter, hotels, meals and plane ticket to come and play. I always thought you do your best to win no matter who you play against. If the team you play in your opinion should be high rated and you beat them, than how would you and your team feel. You won, what next. If you win a tournament or 2 or 3, you should be proud of your team. I have played softball since I was 16 yrs old. My manager has taught me "You go out there, play to win", do your best. I started in a single A division want to win to get to the Major division. The same applies her in SSUSA, we started a AA, moved up to AAA, now wanting to win to get to Majors. This is what every teams should thrive for. Be a winner not a loser, shoot for the moon.

Discussion: SouthWest Tournament finals in 65AAA

I am the manager of Cut Loose 65. I just want to thank SSUSA for putting on a great tournament in Mesquite. The field were great, the teams were all very even by looking at the scores that you already put up. I just want to say "Thank You for a great tournament". Everything ran very smoothly. To the Director, UIC, and all that were associated with this group, which includes the umpires that were just great. Job well done

Discussion: Team ratings

How can a team with major players get rated AAA rating? Doesn't Sacramento look at the roster to see if players have played in the major division before rating them AAA? It seems that some teams are favored over others because of being a bubby. I think SSUSA need to look at rosters to see how many players are major players on a team before rating them AAA. Need to look at the new teams because that is where they are, that's not fair to the true AAA teams!!!
