USSSA Membership Update
To our USSSA Members, Parents, and Athletes:
The 2022 season is upon us, and with it comes a tremendous amount of interest. As we begin to plan for one of our biggest seasons yet, we have decided to reevaluate recent updates to our membership platform.
After much consideration, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our athletes, teams, coaches, and members to postpone the deployment of GotSport for baseball, basketball, and fastpitch.
All team sports will continue to use USSSA’s current system, accessed via USSSA.com. While we work to strengthen our partnership with GotSport, members will be able to maintain use of our association’s current software.
Those who have already registered and paid dues via GotSport can rest assured that all payment and registration information will be transferred over to the USSSA system in a timely manner. This includes all membership dues, as well as team fees.
At USSSA, we are striving to make our games the safest, fairest, and most-equitable they can possibly be. As we continue to push ourselves to the forefront of security and data integrity, we are confident that our relationship with GotSport will one day soon take us to this next level and help launch us further into the modern era.
Our priority remains with preparing our athletes for one of the most anticipated seasons to date. In the meantime, we pledge to do whatever we can as an organization to make the upcoming 2022 season one of our best yet.
We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to get our USSSA community registered. As always, our goal is to develop new strategies with you in mind. We plan to release more information regarding new membership platform updates as the situation evolves.
Thank you for your patience and for choosing to play USSSA.
