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.
Concurrent with the registration period, Spring team managers will be asked to provide a list of the top five (5) girls from their team, with a ranking of 1 being assigned to their top player.
Results of the rankings by managers will remain blinded until after a live tryout, at which girls will be assessed by the District team manager and other evaluators; girls will be ranked based on their performance at the live tryout.
The rankings from the managers (see “C” above) and the rankings from the tryouts (see “D” above) will be provided to the District Team Manager, Spring team managers and the league Player Agent.
A meeting will then be held amongst the District Team Manager, Spring team 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. The balance of the players chosen for the District team will be made by the District Team Manager.
*Note that the 11U District Team will be chosen following the team selections for the 10U and 12U District Teams
