TCLL All Star Overview 

At the end of each Spring season, Tri City Little League will create five All Star teams based on the ages listed below.  Each team will have a total of 13-14 players per team.  Players selected to the All Star teams will be announced June 1st.  These teams will begin playing during the summer period starting with the District 11 tournament around late June.

All Star Team 1 (9-10's) = league-age 9 -10

All Star Team 2 (11's) = league-age 11

All Star Team 3 (Majors) = league-age 12

All Star Team 4 (50-70) = league-age 13

All Star Team 5 (Juniors ) = league-age 13 -14

 

The level of play at the All Star level is competitive.  There is a significant time commitment during the All Star season, and the expectation is that players will be available for all practices and games.  Some managers ask that players limit certain activities (such as swimming) on practice and game days.  

 

Depending on the success of the team, there may be travel involved.  Any expenses related to this are the responsibility of the family.  There is an additional $25 Snack Bar fee for all All Star players, which is used to run the snack bar during any tournaments that Tri City is hosting that particular year.  (It may not be the tournament in which your child is participating.)  The purchase of the player's All Star uniform is also the responsibility of the family.  All Star families will be required to volunteer during the post season (scorekeeping, field prep, snack bar prep); again, this may not be the tournament in which your child is participating.
