2022 All Stars

Welcome to the 2022 All Star Player Commitment Page.

In order to be eligible and considered for an All Star Team, you must read all the below information and complete the linked registration form below at the bottom of this page by Saturday, May 21st. If you have any questions, please contact the VLL Board of Directors here.

Valley Little League is proud to compete in the District 9 All Star Tournament. The VLL All Star rosters are comprised of eligible players who competed in a minimum of 8 games during league play at the AAA, Coast, Majors, Intermediate, Juniors or Senior levels. The All Star experience is an honor for the players.

Please keep in mind that interest does not equal placement. We will carry a roster of 11-12 players, chosen by the team coaches and approved by the Valley LL Board. There will not be tryouts. If we do not have enough players and coaches who meet the criteria we will not form a team at that level.

The main criteria for selection is the ability to commit (see below for expectations) and competitive performance during the season. It is a fantastic experience for the players, and for many, a chance to play tournament style softball or baseball. It is very competitive so while our goal is never to 'win-it-all', we do want to be able to compete and have the girls and boys feel great about representing their home league.

All Star Commitment

Time Commitment

I have no scheduled sporting events, vacations, camps, or any other commitments that will interfere with my attendance at All Star practices and/or games. I agree to minimize activities that could drain my energy before practices and games and will be physically and mentally prepared to work with my coaches and teammates. Most VLL All Star teams will hold daily practices; perhaps twice a day, including Sunday. Only excused absences are allowed during the All Star period. Valley Little League teams may also participate in one or two preparatory tournaments prior to the District 9 Tournament, which may require additional tournament fees and/or travel expenses for families. Typically, preparatory tournaments occur in Eastern Washington and require overnight stays. Historically, these trips provided for a fantastic bonding experience for VLL All Star players and their families.

We understand that while the chances of VLL All Star teams advancing beyond the District 9 Tournament are limited, we agree to not schedule vacation or other activities that may interfere with our child’s ability to attend practices and/or games during the entire All Star period as noted below (dates/locations subject to change). All Star Tournaments are designed as double elimination format and I understand that our commitment ends when my team loses two games.
