**Player Classification is handled at the State Level with Input from the National Level.  Several sources are used (Example: USSSA Player Search, PlayNSA & USSSA Conference List).  Other sources may be considered or used including independent sources within other organizations as they are available.  Per 2013 Rules concerning players playing out of class (Playing Up a Division Higher than their current classification) If a player plays 3 or more tournaments at a level higher, he/she will be locked into that higher classification for the remainder of the year with NO APPEAL to drop back down.  This rule is also taken into consideration when classifying a player that is new to Freedom.  As always, please contact your local Freedom Director if you have questions concerning player classification pertaining to your roster.
