All-Stars

All Stars

General Information:

All-Star teams exist to represent BLL in district level and beyond tournaments leading to the Little League World Series for Major division teams. These teams must meet and follow all rules and guidelines provided by Little League International. The intent is to select the best team and manager  to represent Bossier Little League and our community in tournament play.

The All-Star experiences give players more opportunity to improve skills by continuing to play in tournaments against players with higher skill level. Participation in the Little League International sanctioned tournaments provides BLL with the opportunity to showcase the quality of our baseball and softball programs. BLL pays the entry fees for these tournaments, however there can be significant cost to participants families for travel, uniforms, etc. It often requires diligent fundraising to subsidize. Participating on a BLL All-Star team requires a commitment of up to an additional calendar month. This commitment typically begins around June 1st (or at the conclusion of the regular season or post season tournament) and may continue through the month of July depending on the performance and interest of the team to continue playing.

All-Star candidates must:

  • Be willing and available to attend practice prior to and to play on tournament dates (this can sometimes destroy summer vacations)
  • Meet age, charter and minimum play requirements
  • Fundraise or self-fund the additional cost to travel and participate as required

All-Star candidates will be nominated by their managers/coaches (reported to the VP of baseball/VP of Softball respectively) by the halfway point of the spring regular season. This will give each coach, with intentions to manage an all-star team, the remainder of the season to scout players he/she is not familiar with. ** Important ** A nomination does NOT mean a player is assured an all-star invitation.

All-Star Manager/Coach Selection

The all-star manager/coach must be a registered volunteer in our league and he/she must win a division's regular spring season or their divisions spring post season tournament. Both of these divisional winning managers/coaches will receive nominations to be a division's All-Star manager. The Board of Directors at this point will review and approve the nominations for each division's all-star managers and finalize the appointments. 

Assistant All-Star Coach Selection

The all-star manager, once confirmed by the BOD, will have discretion to designate two assistant coaches provided the coaches meet the LLI eligibility requirements.

All-Star Player Selection

Once confirmed by the board of directors an all-star manager may conduct an all-star tryout comprised of the division's nominated players. The selection of players at this point is solely up to the elected all-star manager. Again, being nominated does not constitute an all-star invitation, it only let's the manager know which players to scout or consider. The Manager will have broad discretion to select players he/she feels will best contribute and create a competitive team that represents BLL in post-season tournament play.
