Application Process

Due to the popularity of these events, USA Baseball will receive many more applications than spaces available for the USA Baseball 14U and 16U Cups. It is not first come, first serve. However, the sooner your team applies, the better its chances of ultimate acceptance. All completed applications (online registration accompanied by a $300 deposit in the form of either a check received at our offices in Durham, N.C., or a credit card* charged online) submitted by the deadline of May 5 will be reviewed, and teams will either be accepted or wait-listed in the following days. Deposit checks will not be cashed, and credit cards will not be charged until the team is accepted into the final tournament field. Deposits for accepted teams are refundable until May 15.

Credit card charges will include a 5 percent convenience fee.

Once accepted, teams must submit the remaining fee as well as a roster with a maximum of 20 players (minimum of 15) and a maximum of five coaches or adult personnel to USA Baseball no later than May 5. After May 5, each team will have the right to make a maximum of two roster changes by June 2.
