Communication and Timing of All-Star and Select Team Formation
Teams will be announced on or about June 12th and practices and exhibition games will begin immediately thereafter.
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.
11's - June 3 - 4:30-6:30 pm at Elm Park (for all players baseball age 11)
12's - June 3 - 6:30-8:30 pm at Elm Park (for all players baseball age 12)
To keep the numbers for each assessment session to a manageable size, all players will be assessed in the group which represents their "baseball age". All players will be considered for every team that they are eligible for by age. For instance, 11's will be considered for the 11/12 All-star team as well as the Selects 11's team.
