Reminder: Upcoming SSUSA & SPA Joint Tournaments

April 1, 2023

Softball News Report

     The Softball Players Association (SPA) and Senior Softball USA (SSUSA) are co-hosting three more tournaments that teams can use to qualify for both the SPA and SSUSA World Championships.

     The first joint tournament was the SSUSA-run 2023 Music City back in March.

     Here are the remaining 2023 joint tournaments:

- Glen Burnie Classic - Glen Burnie, MD, May 3-7 (SPA Runs)
Deadline is Wednesday, April 19.

- Twitty Men's Classic – Nashville. TN, May 11-14 (SPA Runs)
Deadline is April 27.

- Battle of the Roses - York, PA, June 17-18 (SSUSA Runs)
Deadline is June 1.

     These tournaments will use the rules of the association running the tournament. Teams must inform the association running the tournament whether they want to use the tournament to qualify for the organization not running the tournament.

     For example, here's how it would work:

     Teams playing in the Glen Burnie Classic, run by SPA, would tell SPA that they want to also qualify for the SSUSA World Championships. After the tournament, SPA will forward the rosters of those teams to SSUSA.

     No matter if the team is currently registered with one of the organizations, both the team and the players must register with the organization running that respective tournament.

     Teams (and their players) wishing to use their roster for both the SPA and SSUSA World Championships must register with both associations and meet their respective requirements.
