Progress means always putting the USASA athletes first and providing the most ethical, fair, and fun competition environment. The "Rascals" age group will experience an enhanced regional event structure that will have more of a focus on fun and inclusion.

Events for ages 6 & under will take place within the existing USASA regional competition structure and will only be available for regional results. Rascals competitors will not be eligible to travel to and compete at USASA National Championships. This adjustment is to bring our competition offering more in line with the U.S. Training Systems model and allow our youngest members more time to have fun regionally. Once athletes become Ruggies they will then be eligible to gain regional / national rankings points and attempt to qualify for entry into the USASA National Championships.
