New Snowbird Rule
New Snowbird Rule

Beginning in the 2006 season, Senior Softball-USA ėSnowbirdî players will have to register every year to be eligible to play in two states that do not border. The cost to register as a Snowbird is $15 per year, which covers the expense of issuing a new card each year.

We have had to institute these new Snowbird rules because of the abuses of the program over the past two seasons. Under the new rules players must live for three consecutive months in each state and they may only play on one of the teams in the World Championships.

Players will be issued a new card in a different color each year to signify they are ėSnowbirds.î In addition, a list of Snowbird players will be listed on the Senior Softball-USA website ( and on the National Senior Softball Summit website (

Falsifying information carries a penalty of suspension for one year in addition to the year of the offense.

The new form is available at

Players with the old Snowbird cards who want to play in only one region may send their cards into Senior Softball-USA to be changed to a single region at no cost.

Both SSUSA and SPA have a common snowbird form, however players must submit the form to each of those organizations if they will be participating in both SSUSA and SPA events.

I would like to say THANK YOU Terry & Ridge for changing this rule. Myself & others pushed for a change & I tried to do it in a business fashion not a degrading one. So thanks to you, Ridge & ALL THE SENIOR SOFTBALLERS THAT E-MAILED TO CAUSE THIS CHANGE.
