All-Star Selection and Eligibility:
The selection process will be done by the managers of the league. They will use the season as the basis for selection.
To be eligible to play in any All-Star tournament, players must play in 60% of the CYB regular season schedule or a minimum of 9 games. If a player plays does not play in 60% of their regular season games they ARE NOT eligible for All-Stars. This a rule set by Little League International.
Teams will not be announced until June 15th per Little League Rules.
Most families plan vacations around the end of the school year and the July 4th holiday. No tournament games will be played on July 4th. It is important to understand the commitment for each player if he makes the team. If you son is interested in playing on one of these teams, please consider the schedule and commitment prior to planning your family vacation. For the 12 year old boys, this will be their last opportunity to qualify for the Little League World Series team.
The only cost involved is the cost of the All-Star uniforms. Entry fees are paid by CYB for each team. In the past, the uniform cost was $65 per player. We will let you all know the cost as soon as we choose All-Star uniforms.
