Team Registration

Bordering State Rules
>>  With a few noted exceptions, SSUSA uses a bordering state rule for the purpose of roster building.   
>>  A team's "home state" is determined by the residence of the majority of players on the team's roster for each tournament being entered.
>>  Once a home state has been determined, the roster can include only players from that state, or states that touch it.
>>>>  Exception 1:  Residents of the New England states (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI and VT) are considered New York (NY) residents for the purpose of roster building.
>>>>  Exception 2:  Residents of Delaware (DE) are considered residents for New Jersey (NJ) for the purpose of roster building.
>>  A detailed listing of  state / bordering state rules can be found on page 74  of the SSUSA rulebook.
