PROCESS AND PROCEDURES
The philosophy of SLGSA’s All Star program is to primarily field the most competitive teams in each age group (6u, 8u, 10u, 12u & 14u). Secondarily, to provide an opportunity to play competitive ball for as many girls as the talent level and coaching personnel allows.
MANDATORY TRYOUT DATE
Exception - Written doctor’s excuse or death in family presented within 24 hours of tryout date.
MANDATORY TRYOUT DATE - 6u thru 14u, All Pitchers/Catchers & Defensive Players
Multiple scorers will be chosen by each age group. A list of the prospective judges per age group must be submitted to the VP Sports Commission prior to the tryout date for approval.
The judges will rank the girls based on their opinion of the girl’s skill level. Scores will range from 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest score and 1 being the lowest score. In conjunction with the tryouts, league head coaches will be required to rank their entire team.
Any all-star candidate must attend tryouts. The age group commissioner can only grant excused absences with the approval from the V.P. Sports Commissioner. Excused absences must be a doctor’s written excuse or a note from the parent due to a death in the family and submitted to the age group commissioner 24 hours prior to the tryout date. Player will be slotted into available players to choose from completing rosters.
Pitcher and catcher tryouts will be scheduled prior to general tryouts and will be scored independently. Initially, the pitchers will throw to a parent. They will be evaluated as a group at this time. Next the catchers will catch 5 pitches and the pitchers will rotate so that each catcher has the chance to catch each pitcher trying out. The catcher will then take their position behind the plate and catch a ball tossed by a parent and throw down to second base 3 times to a tryout volunteer.
SELECTION AND FINALIZING TEAMS:
Selection of teams shall be by age group commissioner and elected Head Coach, the process will be as follows:
The approved All Star coach for the 8 and under age group would be given the top ranked ten (#1-10) players and the approved All Star coach would then choose 2 or 3 more girls from the remaining pool of players including players with a Sports Commission approved excused absence. A team must have a minimum of 12 players and no more than 13. Any successive teams would be selected via the same process in order to field as many teams as talent and coaching allows.
10U, 12U, 14U, 16U
The approved All Star coach for each specific age group will be given the #1 and #2 ranked pitcher and the #1 ranked catcher. From the overall rankings the coach will be given the top 7 players and then allowed to choose up to 2 players from the remaining pool of players including players with a Sports Commission approved excused absence. A team will have no more than 12 players maximum. Any successive teams would be selected via the same process in order to field as many teams as talent, pitching and coaching allows with the direction and final approval being made by the Sports Commission. (ie. Pitchers/catchers)
If a player is the next highest ranked pitcher that player may not be selected by the coach to round off his team.
All-star teams shall compete in a breakout tournament. At this tournament, Mike Rychlik shall determine and approve each all-star team’s classification as an A, B, or C sanctioned team. The breakout tournament location and date will be announced when determined by ASA Division #43 representatives. Division C teams shall be required to stop play after the Class C state tournament / Gulf Coast Championship. Division A & B all-star teams shall stop play on or before July 26, unless team qualifies for the ASA National Tournament. The District 43 ASA breakout tournament will establish the classification of A, B, or C to determine which state tournament that team is eligible to play within.
8u – If you are short players meaning you have only 9 players, you may pick up player(s) from the other currently approved SLGSA All Star team(s) within the same age group as long as it is mutually agreed upon between both the coach of the pick up team and the coach of the releasing team.
10u and above – If you are short players meaning you have only 8 players, you may pick up a player(s) from the other currently approved SLGSA All Star team(s) within the same age group as long as it is mutually agreed upon between both the coach of the pick up team and the coach of the releasing team.
