and then go to the Fastpitch Section. You can also click on the
active link above.
Step 1 -
Creating a manager's ISTS ID:
The first thing a manager must do is
create an ISTS ID. After you've done this once, you'll never have to
do it again, regardless of how many teams you register over the
years or even if you register teams in different sports.
you've created an ISTS ID in the past and remember what it is, then
skip this section. If you've created one, but can't remember the ID
and password, click on "Recover ID and password" under Teams &
Participants which is the 4th link on the top menu bar.
To create an ID, go to "Teams & Participants" (4th
link on the top menu bar) and click on “Register Team/Log In”. There
is no fee to create a manager's ID. Please do not have a single
person listed as the contact for all of the teams in your
organization. Each team manager/coach needs to have an ID in the
Go to "If you need to create an ID click
Here”. This will put you into the screen titled “Create Managers
User Account”. Fill in the form completely. Also if you would like
to put your team on a text messaging list, then fill in the bottom
of the form as well.
Registering a team:
A couple of
reminders for "Team Name":
standard case, neither all upper nor all lower (e.g. type as
Please check to make sure that you've
spelled your team name correctly before you
submit it. The system does not allow a manager to change the
spelling of a team.
b. There can only be one name per team. So if
you're part of an organization that has
teams with the same
name in several age brackets, distinguish your team as Hometown
and not just Hometown Heroes.
c. If your
organization has more than one team in an age bracket, then enter
the name as
Heroes 16u xxxxx, where xxxxx is some distinguishing word like a
color or the
d. Remember - softball says 14u, soccer says u14.
e. Do not
list your age bracket first. In other words, submit Hometown Heroes
14u Hometown Heroes.
f. Team city
and state is where the team is principally domiciled, which in most
cases is the
address of the
manager. However, if the manager lives in a different state than
team should be registered, a
city and state should be used where the team is based.
A couple of items regarding team
classification that you think correctly represents your team's status. Keep
in mind that as the season progresses USSSA reserves the right to
change any team's classification.
1. If your
team is very competitive on a regional/national level and
considering Showcase/Exposure calibur events. You should consider
yourself a USA Elite Select (USAES)
team. USAES offers events with top level competition along with
marquee showcase events culminating in the
World Fastpitch Championships in July.
USAES events are a
great way to test your team and also get them exposure. Note: You
can always classify as an "A" level team to start. There is always
the option to upgrade your team registration to USAES and pay the
difference in registration fees at a later date. Any team classified
as USAES will compete at the A level within there state of origin.
USAES teams can still play in their respective state tournaments and
local events at the Class A level.
2. If your
team is considered a Select team and can compete with and beat some of the better
teams in your state, then
you should consider yourself an "A" team.
Many events are combo A/B or Open events.
3. If you're
a newly formed team that is primarily a community based team that plans on playing in a number of
competitive tournaments or an
existing team that consistently finishes in the middle or
occasionally at the top of the pack in most
tournaments, then you're more of a "B" team.
Many events are combo A/B or Open events.
4. A "C"
team is a team that typically only plays in a local league, an
all-star team from a local league
or a team that might only play in
one or two lower level tournaments a month or season. In USSSA teams
can only submit as a Class "B" team. Teams would have to contact the
state office to request to be reclassified as class "C".
Click on the form to request to be classified as a "C"
team: C Classification Request Form.
5. There is a also a
classification for USSSA. These are teams that are formed out of Rec
leagues and are All-Star or Rec League teams. Playing experience is
at a minimum with these teams. USSSA does offer events for these
teams to compete with. Initially these events may be offered as
combo events with class C teams also permitted. There is usually one
or two rec/all star only events in the later summer months in Ohio
USSSA. Find out if your league is affiliated with USSSA. The
benefits of affiliating your league Contact the state office if more
information is needed on affiliating your league with USSSA.
Step 3 -
Paying for your team
The easiest and quickest way to pay
for your registration and receive your registration number is to do
it online with a credit card. Note that there is an extra $5 charge
for this option, bringing the total fee to $40. To do so, go to
