With these new additions, USSSA will be promoting their tournaments and upcoming events with a goal to gain followers and keep them up-to-date on the latest news. It’s a great opportunity to encourage social interaction among our members as well as continue to support the growth of USSSA Soccer.

Shimoda adds, “We really want to engage our members by allowing them up-to-date access to tournament schedules, action and results. It will also encourage them to spread the word and promote the benefits of USSSA.”

This new media will help enrich our members and show them the development of our State and National tournaments at a reliable and timely manner.
