Communication and Timing of All-Star and Select Team Formation

Team Formation Process and Criteria

There will be open evaluations held in early June.   Players will be selected to these teams based on the following factors:

  • Evaluation of play during the regular season and feedback from all coaches in each division for the regular season 
  • Assessment during open evaluations from independent third party assessors (see below for dates)
  • The All-Star/Select team Coach will have input in selections taking into account specific positional requirements for the respective team

Decisions will be based upon several factors including eligibility, skills, performance during both the regular season and open evaluations, sportsmanship, and availability through to the end of the All Stars/Selects schedule.  If for some reason, a player is unable to attend the evaluation sessions, they can still be placed on a team as there are other components to the overall selection process. 


Open Evaluations

TBD

 

Information Meeting for Parents

For parents of players who are interested in the All-Stars/Selects programs, there will be an information meeting in May.  Details will be announced closer to the date.


Coaches

Head Coaches for the All-Star/Select teams will be selected by the KLL Board based on applications made by May 31.

 

All-Star and Select Team Fees

Players that are placed on a team will be required to pay an additional fee.  These fees will be based on any additional costs for the team such as customized caps, jerseys, etc.  The range for these fees have traditionally been $50-$250 depending on the specific team. No player will be denied the opportunity to play on any of these teams if the fee might prevent them from doing so - please be in touch with the League President.
