2015 Virginia USSSA Slow Pitch Improvement Plan

In an effort to improve the Virginia USSSA Slow Pitch program and create a level playing field for all teams involved, Virginia USSSA has compiled a list of teams that we recommend and encourage to move up to the next level. These teams showed outstanding play in the 2014 season. We are encouraging these teams to test their skills against greater competition. Throughout the 2015 season, all teams will be classified by their local area directors and teams may be moved up or down at any time during the 2015 season. No team will be re-classified up or down after July 1, 2015.

Men's C teams encouraged to move up to Men's B (Virginia USSSA State rule: 8 homeruns):
None

Men's D teams encouraged to move up to Men's C (Virginia USSSA State rule: 4 homeruns):

None

Men's E teams encouraged to move up to Men's D (Virginia USSSA State rule: 2 homeruns):
None
