J.O. COMMISSIONER UPDATE – MID-MARCH 2020

Post by USASoftballGeorgia » Tue Mar 17, 2020 12:14 pm

This mid-month update is to answer many of the questions we have been receiving in reference to the current health scare in our country.

2020 Spring/Summer Tournament Schedule – Understand, all our USASB of GA events are subject to the availability of the local parks and recreation departments where the fields/complexes are located. As such, when the local establishments close their complexes we have to cancel our events. Our tournaments directors work closely with the local recreation departments and will notify me when they are able to reschedule events. Continue to monitor our USASB of GA web site for updates.

USASB NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP BERTHS – It appears that some have been led to believe that it no longer requires a berth to be eligible for play in a USA Softball National Tournament. That is a falsehood. We are not the other alphabet organizations that merely require an entry fee to participate. Teams from Georgia must have earned one of our association berths, a region berth from another USASB state association, or a berth from the National Office. As such, teams playing in a USASB sanctioned National Championship must be “individually” registered and have “approved” status.

TEAM USA COMING TO GEORGIA – The two exhibition stops in Columbus on Friday, April 3 and in Woodstock on Sunday, April 5 are being postponed at this time. The National Office has suspended all the tour stops until further notice. They will attempt to restart the tour once it is deemed safe for the team and spectators. Again, we will keep everyone posted on the revised dates of the tour.

For presale tickets in Columbus go to; www.ColumbusGaSports.com and Woodstock www.crpa.net

12U ALL AMERICAN EVENT – The 2020 USASB 12U All American event will be held August 13 – 16 at the Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. The tryouts for the Georgia team schedule on March 29 and April 19 have been cancelled. The May 17 date is still set at this time at Twin Creeks Field #5 – 5:00 – 8:00 PM. We are currently looking into one additional tryout during May and will make that announcement as soon as it is secured. To register go the USASB of GA web site.

REGISTRATION ISSUES – As I have instructed repeatedly “when you have issues/questions concerning your team/individual registration you must provide a Team or Individual ID#” with your request. It is very difficult to resolve your issues without that number. Like many organizations, the National Office is observing the local government direction and operating with a limited staff. As such, it is taking a little more time to issue cards and resolve issues they are presented with.

Good Fortune, and let me know if I can assist you in any way!
