All Star/Championship Season
The All Star season will run from May 1st to approximately July 15th and will consist of five scheduled tournaments. A single tournament normally consists of 2-3 games played on a Saturday (pool play) with a minimum of one elimination game (bracket play) played on Sundays. It is possible that a pool play game may occur on Friday, but the league tries to avoid this if possible.
We expect to field one 8U, 10Um 12U and 14U teams. A player must attend the evaluation to be considered for her respective All Star team. Each of the 10U, 12U and 14U teams have a maximum roster size of 12 players, the 8U team has a maximum roster size of 14 players. The maximum roster size is a guideline and the All Star Committee may decide to maintain smaller rosters. Note that if demand is high, we may consider adding an additional team in a given division if it can be appropriately supported.
Typically, All-Star teams will hold two practices a week. We ask that any family that has an interest, commit to scheduled practices. While attendance of each scheduled tournament is not a prerequisite for All Star participation, we expect that committed players will be available for the majority if not predominance of tournaments.
Tournament costs are estimated to be roughly $300 per player. This includes All Star uniforms (pants, jersey, socks and jacket) and all applicable tournament fees. We expect to reduce the cost with ongoing All-Star fundraising.
Any player that is currently playing up in an older division will be required to play in the division that they would normally play in as determined by her birth year.
