|USSSA and USA Elite Select are pleased to announce our 2nd Annual USA Elite Select Futures All American Tryouts and Games. These tryout events are used to identify the top level softball players in each age group but also to enhance the state and regional USSSA programs.
We have divided the country in to eight regions (see regions below) and will be selecting the top 24 players (2 teams per age group) in each age group (10U to 14U) to represent their respective region. Players who are selected to their regional teams will then compete against the other regions in the 2nd Annual Futures All American Games held in Kissimmee, FL August 1-6, 2016.
USA Elite Select has partnered with the USSSA Pride and National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) to bring the ultimate on and off-field experience for youth fastpitch players and parents at our Futures All American Tryouts. As part of the tryout, players and parents will be educated on the core values of USA Elite Select. The entire USA Elite Select program is founded upon three pillars – Competition, Education, and Community. To offer a comprehensive and competitive program that continues to grow our sport and the people involved, it is vital that we look beyond the field of play. Sports offer our young athletes a platform to succeed in life and USA Elite Select wants to make sure we create the right platform for those opportunities to exist. Further, it is essential to overall growth of the athlete and sport that we recognize all the parties who are involved—athletes, coaches, and parents.
There is a standard entry fee for the USA Elite Select Futures All American Tryout events. Events for all participants 10U-14U have an online entry fee of $140. Participants who are chosen for the All American team will be charged a fee of $100 to play in the Futures All American Games. This will secure their spot on the team as well as help with costs associated with the running of the event.
