My question relates to a circumstance where a new (not young) player who has never played senior ball just retired and moved into our area. He wants to play on the weekends and has found a AAA team that will let him join. However, there is a major team that wants to use him as a fill in player for one tournament. If he fills in or plays for the Major team in one or two tournaments, will that affect his eligibility to play on his committed AAA team? I've been reading everything SSUSA has posted about ratings and there is very little about how individuals are rated that I can find; rating information seems to focus on team ratings, not individuals. I'm willing to admit my ignorance and be directed to any information that may exist.

Scott, ill take a stab at it. Your friend should be able to play on the major team for 1 tournament and still keep the AAA rating. Heres where im not sure. If he plays a 2nd tournament with the major team, he might be re rated as a major player. If he does get rated as a major player he still should be allowed to play on the AAA team as 1 of the 3 out of ratings players provided that the AAA team does not already have 3 "major " players on their roster. I would call the SSUSA office to confirm tho on eligibility.
