Covid Roster Rule
I apologize if this has already been addressed - is the contiguous state rule waived for two roster slots for 2021 tournament season? Thanks!

199geek - here's the rule as per SSUSA website (actually started in 2020 due to Covid):
The vast majority of Senior Softball USA teams will be able to add two out-of-area players to their rosters starting with the 2021 season under a new rule approved this month by the SSUSA National Rules Committee.

AA, AAA and Major teams that are NOT based in five (5) player-rich states will be allowed to add two players from any state located on the same side of the Mississippi River as the teamís home state, as long as those players meet all other roster eligibility rules.

The new rule does not apply to Major Plus teams, which already have unique roster composition rules - four (4) out-of-region players, same side of the river.

Also excluded are teams based in California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon or Hawaii. Under "neighboring state" eligibility rules, those five states already have the nationís largest pools of available players. The new rule is designed to help teams in areas where fewer players live.

That pretty much sums it up! Don't know why Hawaii would be in that group?

Jawood ... Because Hawaii is a defined "bordering state" with California ...

I knew that was coming! Probably should have said is there a team from Hawaii willing to travel enough times to California to make it worth while for someone to join their team!

Jack ... There are a LOT of teams based in Hawaii that play in our Winter Worlds and World Championships ... Not so much so for the Western's because of the quick turn-around back to our World Championships ... BTW: Your old buddy whas a brand new titanium hip that's less than a week old! ... FINALLY! ...
