National Classification Conversion Chart
(If you have both NPPL and PSP classifications, your USPL classification will be whichever is higher)
2008 Pro NPPL = USPL SP (unless listed on a 2009 NXL or USPL Pro Roster)
2008 SP NPPL = USPL SP
2008 D1 NPPL = USPL D1
2008 D2 NPPL = USPL D2
2008 D3 NPPL = USPL D2
Pro NXL = USPL Pro
SP PSP = USPL SP
D1 PSP = USPL D1
D2 PSP = USPL D2
D3 PSP = USPL D3
A professional player is someone who is listed on a 2009 USPL Pro roster or 2009 NXL roster. Anyone who played pro in 2008 but is not on a 2009 pro roster (USPL or NXL) is classified as SP. Any player who takes one year off can be reclassified down 1 division. Note: No player can ever be reclassified down to D3. After five events playing Division 3, players will be reclassified as Division 2.
To have your case reviewed, you can request a reclassification for a $50 fee (no matter the outcome of the league's decision) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
