|INACTIVE PLAYERS STILL CURRENTLY RESTRICTED|
We finally got our hands on the official changes to State Code from December’s USA Softball of Alaska meeting, here is a look at those changes:
Social Media Policy
An extensive Social Media Policy pertaining to everyone that is involved as coaches, players, parents, guardians or other persons associated with USA Softball of Alaska has been established and can be read here
Age change (2.02)
All Players in Adult Slow pitch teams must be a minimum of eighteen (18) years of age.
Gone are the Comp men’s league and the Comp women’s league
Classification guidelines (8.04)
Home Run Rules (14.01)
Here are the team packets for this weekend’s tourney.
We have 31 teams in four divisions (our largest Classic), all divisions will be two day tourneys starting at 8:15 a.m. Saturday with the if games at 4:25 p.m. Sunday. No Friday games this year but might pursue it next year. We will be using C5/C6 on Saturday and a little on Sunday.
We need to know who teams are picking up by Noon Friday, the earlier the better. Remember Coed C/D you are limited to 5 pickups from your coed level and below, Coed B Open are open rosters but they have to have played Coed B or below. Coed open is just that, just remember players can only play on only one team.
NOTE: We are updating the Coed D bracket, a team had signed up with an association rather than through us so they got missed
A few things to remember:
Start planning your summer with the initial list of the State slow pitch tourneys, full tourney list coming in the next few weeks.
Aug. 3 & 4
Coed A — GHSA in Fairbanks
Coed B — ASA in Anchorage
Coed C — ATSA in Anchorage
Coed D — MSSA in Wasilla
Aug. 17 & 18
Men’s Comp — MSSA in Wasilla
Men’s C — ASA in Anchorage
Men’s D — GHSA in Fairbanks
Women’s — ASA in Anchorage
Moving on Up
Also there are a lot of coed teams moving to make the levels more competitive. Large group of Coec C teams moving up to B as well as Coed D moving up to C. Should make the tourneys a little more balanced. If your team from last season was moved that makes you count as a player from the new level for 2019. Only three players from teams on this new reclass list can play down a level, so if three players from what are now Coed B teams want to play on a Coed C in 2019, everyone else on the team has to be Coed C or below.
Thanks to everyone that played, coached, kept score or umpired this weekend in our 16th AkS Classic! Another one on the books, safe travels to everyone hitting the roads.
A few hiccups on Sunday but everything worked out. The young lady that hurt herself at home is having an mri to determine if it’s a MCL or other soft tissue damage.
