Commitment – We know that players have a number of different commitments during the summer. For All Stars, our preference when selecting players is to select those who will be with us for at least the first two rounds of tournaments, the district tournament and the state tournament. This does not mean that a player who can only be there for the district tournament, or only for the state tournament, will not be considered, but it could be a deciding point. Players can be dropped (due to their schedules or injuries) or added after each round of the tournaments, however, once a player is dropped, they cannot return to the roster. In the next couple of weeks we will send out a letter of commitment which will ask about your son’s availability for All Star tournaments and activities.

If you are interested in having your son(s) considered for an All Star team, please let Chris Lillios know. Chris’ email address is clillios@compuserve.com. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Ron Fried, Managers Rep, at ron.fried@sri.com.
Thanks!
