TOURNAMENT AND ALL-STAR TEAM SELECTION PROCESS (2022)

A player’s performance during the regular season will be a substantial consideration for selection to a tournament team.

The methods to determine a player’s performance during the regular season will consist of:

- the ratings from their coaches which will include a player’s offensive and pitching statistics.
observation of other coaches 

Another basis for selection for a tournament team are evaluations.  Players who meet the Little League tournament eligibility requirements are eligible to attend tournament tryouts.

EXCEPTION - Players must be invited to try-out for an “older” team.  Prior to such an invitation being issued, the President must be advised after the League Coordinators for the “younger” age group AND the “older” age group have discussed the invitation

Tryouts will be conducted under the supervision of the ABSA President and/or Vice President.  There will be a minimum of one tryout evaluation (weather and schedule permitting).  Players that cannot make a tryout must notify the Summer Coordinator in advance, including the reason why they are unable to attend.

In addition to evaluations, consideration will be given to:

- Past Season performance
- Past summer tournament experience and performance.

Any eligible player who desires to sign up for an All-Star team, or a second-tier summer team (registration coming soon)

Only those registering for an All-Star tournament team will need to attend ONE of the two evaluations.  Those evaluations will be:

Players must have unrestricted availability for the tournament dates set forth by the District 5 Administrator for the appropriate team which they are selected and must be available for at least 80 percent of any practices that are conducted prior to the tournament start.  If a player cannot meet these commitments, he will be ineligible for tournament consideration.
