Teams Rating
Just wondering, if a team wins a big tournament such as "The Worlds" does the team automatically get moved up in rating for the next year?

Here are the "guidelines" but take it with a dose of salt at the same

Here are the guidelines for teams winning the LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters Championships, the ISA Senior Worlds, the SPA National Championships:
Teams winning in a division of 6 or more teams and may not appeal their rating increase in 2012.
Teams winning in a division of 3-5 teams and may appeal their rating increase in 2012 after playing in three (3) tournaments.
Teams winning in a division of 2 teams will not be moved up.
SSUSA reserves the right NOT to move a team up if there is a preponderance of information showing the team should remain in the original skill level.
The rating of a new team is determined by the rating / ratings of the teams from which the players came. A team with all new players begins as AAA if no other information is available. If there is a question, the team is assigned the higher rating.
A team retains its rating unless it falls below 6 players from the original team. The new team ranking is then determined by the playing history of the current team members.
Major-Plus players may only play on Major or Major-Plus teams in the same age division, unless it is determined that the player is not a "key" or "impact" player. This is decided on proven medical circumstances or if the player is determined to be a pickup player for only one tournament for the team. These exceptions are decided on an individual basis and approved in writing by the association.
