All Stars

Little League All-Stars: General Information

The Little League All-Star tournament is a competitive post-season competition where All-Star teams from each league compete for a District Championship. It is an opportunity for a higher level of play and competition within the regional Little League system. Players selected have a significant commitment to the All-Star team & will receive a more intense level of tournaments for some age groups. Most teams practice every day. 

If a team wins the District 8 Tournament then the journey continues to the State Tournament. For Majors and Juniors there is the potential to go all the way to the Little League World Series.

Who is eligible?

Players who are league age 8-16 have opportunities for play. In all divisions, players must meet the minimum game requirement established by Little League to be eligible for an All-Star team. Player eligibility has ranged in 60% of participation in regular season games to attendance of 8 regular season games in years prior.

Player eligibility changes from year to year and can be found here: What Parents Need to Know About All-Stars – Little League.  Additionally, players must meet the criteria for WLL district residency and school attendance player eligibility.

How are teams formed? 

For most divisions, Tournament teams will include 12 players, one manager, and two coaches.  

Teams are selected by a selection committee (All-Star Manager, President, division Vice President, Player Agents, and all regular season managers) that review the player evaluation forms provided by the regular season managers and the results from tryouts if attended.  Managers from each division will provide input on players’ performance throughout the regular season including statistics and positions played.

It is the intent of the Woodinville Little League Board to field teams that will best represent our League in competition and character. All selection decisions regarding All-Star teams are made with Board and District approved requirements for All Stars and in compliance with Little League International rules and regulations.  Several characteristics permeate our selection process for Players and Managers for the All-Stars team: Skill-level and ability to compete; attitude, hustle, team spirit, team leadership; overall character, integrity, and sportsmanship. 

Please reference the official WLL All-Star Process  document to learn more.

 

All-Star Expectations

  • 100% attendance to all activities (practice, team events, tournaments) is expected.
    • There will be practices/events/tournaments 6-7 days per week. 
    • Practices happen after school and can last up to 3-4 hours. 
  • Commitments to other sports/teams are secondary to All-Stars (All-Stars team always holds priority over other teams)
  • Teams may participate in tournaments leading up to the District Tournament – there may be an out of town tournament that will require a hotel stay
  • The All-Stars season length is variable, depending on the age of the team and depending on how far the team advances. Families should ensure they are available through July and in some cases August.

When is it?

  • Practice and evaluations are determined by the Little League international start date and occur between mid-May and beginning of June. Practices will work around the baseball and softball TOC. 
  • District and state tournaments vary in location and times each year and can be found on the district and state websites around April. Tournaments can be expected to be played in July and August.
