2019 NTX USSSA Rules - By Law Changes

2019 NTX USSSA State Tournaments

2019 Player Rating Value


NEW USSSA Player Rating Value (PRV)

With the inception of the National Classification Committee (NCC), there are some national classification rules which will supercede our North Texas USSSA rules.

The reason for this letter is how the NCC classifies players and teams.

In the past, in North Texas, we would allow players to be a “bump” player on a lower-classed team at the State tournament.

Beginning in 2019, the NCC has developed the PRV (Player Rating Value) system that determines a player’s level of play. A player’s PRV includes the current season and the player’s PRIOR three-year history.

The NCC, when it bumps a team at the end of the season, will include each player who has ever been listed on that team’s roster history. If a player was listed on a team’s online roster for ANY period of time, that player, if the team is bumped, will be included and will have an NCC tag ‘attached’ to his name in the system. In addition, the NCC is ‘tagging’ players who have played in multiple levels of classifications at their highest level of play.

We will still allow players to reclass by playing in their respective State tournaments as a “bump” on a lower-classed team. Due to the PRV system now in place, there is one additional step that must be completed by you, the player, to maintain your ‘new’ classification.

Between December 1st of the current season (2019) and April 1st of the upcoming season (2020), a player who has been ‘tagged’ with an NCC bump needs to email me at northtexasusssa@verizon.net or mike.delatte@usssa.com, with your name, date of birth, team name and team classification you played State with to reclassify. And here’s a reminder … since this process will be taking place all over the country, the quicker your request is sent in, hopefully the faster your request will be reviewed and acted upon. Don’t wait until April 1st to send in your request. If you wait until AFTER April 1st, your reclassification request will NOT be honored by the NCC.

Now here’s the bad news … there was an email sent out by the National Slowpitch Committee with this information back in March 2019. If you didn’t get your classification corrected at that time, your PRV remains at the level determined by the USSSA system. If that is the case, then you must follow the NTX USSSA reclassification procedure by playing in the State tournament as a “bump” player on a lower-classed team to reclass for the 2020 season. You must be added to a team’s online roster PRIOR to the July 1st deadline. We will NOT be allowing any ‘write-ins’ at the State tournament and all players should approve their roster addition and sign the waiver to complete the process.

Effective immediately, we have removed the 2019 Players Classification List from the North Texas USSSA (ntxusssa.org) website since we will now be using the USSSA PRV’s system exclusively.

If you have any questions, please email me or Mike at the email addresses listed earlier in this notification.

Thanks!

How To Add Players To Your Roster

February 13, 2019

    

 Managers,

We are seeing that teams are having trouble

Getting their rosters approved 

These steps will help get your players approved:

For players who have GSL & or USSSA HISTORY once the manager adds you to the roster

 **You will NOT need a validation code , you do not need an email.

 Follow these steps:

 Go to: https://www.usssa.com/login

 Click on adult player

 Then put in the login and password you had LAST YEAR. That got you approved.

 Once you are logged in:

 1. SIGN WAIVER

 2. Then after waiver you will get a ACCEPT OR DECLINE Button for GSL & USSSA.

 3. Click ACCEPT FOR BOTH as long as you sign waiver and accept roster invite for both you will be good to go.

 If you do this from your phone and sign waiver

Then do not see the ACCEPT / DECLINE BUTTON scroll to the Right , it will be there.

 ** IF YOU HAVE A NEW CELL NUMBER OR EMAIL LOG IN WITH YOUR OLD LOG IN TO GET APPROVED THEN EDIT YOUR ACCOUNT.

 

NOW FOR NEW PLAYERS
1st Manager needs to try and add player to the roster.

 If it says player is not in data base, then the manager needs to send in an EMAIL to their State Director with the following information:

 Team Name:

Players Name: (As on Drivers License)

Date of Birth:
Cell Number:
Email Address:

 You MUST send this to YOUR STATE DIRECTOR.

 ALL INFO MUST BE THERE

*We do not need home address.
* Also info you have multiple players to add,
please send just ONE email if at all possible.

 Once the State Director adds the new player:

1. An invite will be emailed to the player

2. The player must follow steps in the email:

 *SET UP A PLAYER ACCOUNT

*Then LOGIN TO ACCOUNT
*SIGN WAIVER
*Then CLICK ACCEPT BUTTON FOR GSL & USSSA

 * MANAGERS VERY IMPORTANT YOU CHECK

AND MAKE SURE PLAYER INFO IS CORRECT
the system is Case Sensitive.

 Trouble Shooting when a manager logs into their account on their Dashboard:

 1. Clicks manage players

The goal is ALL PLAYERS APPROVED

 If you have pending players click on the pending tab If it shows the player has SIGNED WAIVER but is still Pending:

 1. Then that player needs to LOG INTO THEIR ACCOUNT and ACCEPT ROSTER INVITE

REMEMBER THERE IS A GSL AND USSSA ROSTER TO ACCEPT .

 * IN THE CASE A PLAYER ONLY PLAYS GSL OR USSSA FOR A SPECIFIC TEAM, they must be approved for the one they are playing .

 When a manage prints up a Roster for the tournament if he looks at the event online in the STATURE Section that will show you the RULES AND ROSTERS USED FOR THAT EVENT .

 NOW ITS UP TO THE PLAYERS TO GET APPROVED AND THE MANAGERS TO MANAGE .
