    • 20th Annual World Series and College Exposure
      20th Anniversary of the USFA World Series
       
      USFA World Series was reformatted in 2017 to include the College Exposure for the 14u, 16u, and 18u. The first week format includes four pool games that are 80 minutes long to incorporate the College Exposure portion of the Event.  We have a bigger roster of Division I coaches and several other College Coaches signed up to manage and run the skills camps that precedes the tournament and to evaluate players during the pool game portion of the event.  This new format is generating great feedback due to the success of the 2017 event.
       
      We have also added Machine Pitch to the Second Week to be a full service fastpitch organization.  This event has been a great reward to the hard working teams throughout the country.  It is an honor for our staff to host this event, and we strive to make it better every year.

      ** Happy to announce **
       
      USFA is excited to have one of the best coaches in the ACC to help educate our Select/Travel Ball Coaches! This is included with Week One. 
       
      Boston College Head Coach, Ashley Obrest will be giving a coaches clinic at the conclusion of Team Check-In, at the Coaches Meeting.
       
      Among Her Topics are:
       
      Recruiting 101 and "State of the Sport" 
       
       
    • The College Showcase Format will be used for 14u A-Class Division, 16u A-Class Division and 18u A Division.
       
      We will still offer 14u B, 14u C, 16u B and 18u B that will play the regular format.
