What is USA Baseball
Since 1978, USA Baseball has been the national governing body for the sport of baseball. It represents the sport in the United States as a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) and internationally as a member federation of the International Baseball Federation (IBAF).
Nearly every major national amateur baseball organization in America is united as a USA Baseball National Member Organization. As a result, USA Baseball governs more than 12 million amateur players in ballparks and playgrounds across the country. As the commissioner's office for amateur baseball, USA Baseball is a resource center for its various membership group, fans, and players. USA Baseball is also responsible for promoting and developing the game of baseball on the grassroots level, both nationally and internationally
What is the current international age determination date
The current international age determination date states your birthday must fall on January 1 or later of a specified year to be eligible for particular age groups. The age a player reaches during the calendar year of the international competition will serve as his competition age.
(For example, if your son/daughter wants to play on the 16U National team in 2016, he/she must be 16 years old or younger during the entire calendar year. If your son/daughter would turn 17 on December 1 of 2016, he/she would not be eligible to participate with the 16U National Team because his/her competition age would be 17, regardless of his/her age during the time of the tournament.)

If my son attends a local tryout when do we find out if he made the next round or finals in the region
Check with the event coordinator who hosted the tryout, as they should issue you a code to register for the Final tryouts if you advanced. If you don't hear something within 14 days after the event call your Regional NTIS director at 610-842-8333, but please wait until AFTER the 14 day period to contact this number. It is possible that you will receive the information via e-mail. To be informed ask at your tryout the method in which they will let you know if you advanced.
