Introduction

 

ALL NOMINATED PLAYERS' ELIGIBILITY WILL BE REVERIFIED PRIOR TO ALL STAR TRYOUTS.  PLEASE BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION FOR BIRTH CERTIFICATES, PROOF OF RESIDENCY, SCHOOL WAIVERS, AND GRANDFATHER WAIVERS. 

All-Stars must commit to 100% participation in all practices and games.  Do NOT make unbreakable vacation plans or other commitments in June-July (9-11 yr olds) or June-August (12-13 yr olds)! 


The intent of Academy Little League is to field the best, most competitive combination of players and staff to represent the League. We participate in the Colorado District 5 All-Star Tournaments (9-10, 11, 11-12 and potentially Intermediates this season) following the end of regular season play. Each age group fields one team, each composed of a maximum of 14 players. Official dates for the 2018 All-Star Tournaments are not yet published/confirmed; however, we expect District play to begin on/about July 6th.

 

The 11-12 year old and Intermediate All-Star Teams have the opportunity to advance beyond the State Tournament to Regional competition; and the World Series.

 

Player selection

 

All-Star participants must first be nominated by regular-season teammates to attend evaluations.  They will then be selected based upon the following criteria:

 

a)         Players who demonstrated attitude, commitment, and sportsmanship.

b)         Players who demonstrated on-field performance.

c)         Regual Season Team manager recommendation.

d)         Availability throughout the entire All-Star tournament schedule, including all tryouts and practices.

e)         Performance at All-Star evaluations (to be held June 8-9, 2018).

 

Final player selections will be made by the All-Star manager and coaches based on the above listed criteria. All- Star practices begin the week after selection and are typically conducted 5-6 days a week until the District Tournaments begin in early July. Players may not miss practices or games without extremely extenuating circumstances, which should be discussed and approved PRIOR to a player’s tryout.

 

Manager / Coach selection: The All-Star manager for each division is selected by the Board of Directors near the conclusion of the regular season. The manager selects one or two assistant coaches who must also be approved by the Board of Directors.

 

NOTE: In the past there have been questions regarding fielding separate (from the All-Stars) tournament teams. The ALL Board wants everyone to understand these teams (if formed) have nothing to do with ALL; they may be formed, organized, coached, and funded by anyone wanting to do so, with players from any (or a mix of) organizations. Our league insurance, equipment, policies, etc. does not cover/support these separate tournament teams. Consistent with the league’s goal of fielding the best, most competitive combination of players and staff to represent the League, ALL does not support players selected as ALL All-Stars to participate on tournament teams ON/AFTER the date that All-Star selections are made (the first week of June). The Board does, however, clearly recognize the potential benefit of improving individual skill levels of ALL players who choose to play on tournament teams throughout the regular season.  However, as stated previously, the Board encourages attendance at all league games/practices for ALL players, and fully supports ALL regular season coaches in their decisions to determine playing time based on games/practices attended.
