District Softball Teams: 2018 Process for Team Selections
NOTE: a girl may only play on one District Level team
10U District Teams: girls who are softball ages 9 and 10 are eligible (birth years 2007 and 2008)
12U District Team: girls who are softball ages 11 and 12 are eligible (birth years 2005 and 2006)
II. Team Selections
The District all-star teams will be comprised of the top ranked girls at each age level and will be chosen based on the process outlined below.
All girls who play the required number of games during the Spring season are permitted to register for consideration for inclusion on an age-appropriate District team; registration must be complete by the posted deadline; a District team manager will be chosen by the President, Vice President of Softball and Player Agent following the registration period.
In order to be eligible for the selection process the player must have no conflicts from June 1st through August 10th that would preclude the team from fielding its full roster for a Tournament game at any level of the competition. District Tournament Teams are a tremendous time commitment and fulfilling the entirety of that commitment is a prerequisite for being considered as an eligible player. Players with conflicts that in the judgement of the VP of Softball, Player Agent and Team Manager preclude their team from fielding a full roster will not be considered for selection.
In early May a mandatory meeting will be held for all parents of players who wish to be considered for selection. We will discuss expectations, time commitment and conflicts.
Following the registration period, the managers from the Spring Season will be asked to rank the girls who have registered and meet the above criteria for eligibility (sufficient games played and no conflicts), based on their play during the regular season (a ranking of 1 will be given to the top player). The ranking will be tabulated and averaged by the VP Softball and Player Agent.
A meeting will then be held amongst the VP Softball, District Team Manager, Spring Majors managers, and the league Player Agent to discuss the merits of each player seeking placement on a District team. The first nine (9) players chosen for the District team will be made by consensus among this group based largely upon the rankings. The balance of the players chosen for the District team will be made by the District Team Manager.
*Note that an 11U District Team may be chosen (if there are enough girls to field a team) following the team selections for the 10U and 12U District Teams.
