2024 Softball Tournament Teams

We are preparing to form WPLL All-Star teams for the 2024 season. AAA and Majors players who played regular season ball are eligible to be selected.

Possible teams include:

·       8-10 Year Softball
·       9-11 Year Softball
·       11-12 Year Softball

These tournament teams will have the opportunity to compete in their appropriate District 13 All Star tournament. If they win at their division, they will represent WPLL in the Washington State All Star Tournament. There may also be additional prep tournaments that teams will choose to participate in. The purpose of this letter is to familiarize you with the details of the All-Star season and the commitment it requires from players and their families. Our goal is to clearly communicate the All Star expectations in order to optimize the All-Star experience.

Selection as an All-Star player is an honor and it gives kids the chance to compete at a higher level. The memories made during summer All Stars are priceless! While it is an honor to be selected for a tournament team, there is a commitment and responsibility for both both players and families. Regular attendance at All-Star practices and games is mandatory.

Time Commitment
Practice begins the first part of June after the WPLL season ends. The District 13 tournament will be June 24 - June 26th. This will be in Cheney or Medical Lake. Teams that win at the district tournament will move on to represent WPLL at the state level. The state tournament dates are not official yet, but I do expect the majors softball state tournament to be July 1 - 8 in the Redmond, WA area. All Little League tournaments are double elimination, meaning each team will play at least two games. There may also be additional games/tournaments that will provide additional opportunities for growth. Teams will practice anywhere from 3 to 5 days per week (days and times set by the manager) We have not regularly had softball tournament teams, so much of the exact process and what to expect is unknown. In addition, there are not a lot of local leagues that offer a softball program. So finding games requires a little more creativity.

Financial Commitment
There is a financial expense for participation on the summer All-Star teams. The player participation fee to WPLL is $60. This is to cover the cost of the jersey, which each player will keep. Hats, socks, and pants are also provided. Pants will need to be returned. We have financial assistance available if this fee poses a burden. Please call Stacy Ashcroft at 509-294-5341 for more information. Please note that each family will be responsible for covering the costs of out of-town travel expenses, in the event that the team attends a tournament out of town. 
Playing Time
In All-Stars, minimum play rules are modified. Tournament play uses continuous batting order, which means all kids will bat. However, at the tournament level, there is not a requirement that kids play defense. Teams will be filled with very talented players, several whom may be used to playing the same position. Players/parents need to understand that players may have a very different role on a tournament team than the role the player is accustomed to during the regular season. The coaching staff will determine the role/position that the player will fulfill to best suit the needs of the team. It is also important to note that the actual game time is a very small part of the overall tournament experience. Practices, travel, team dinners, etc. all work together to create an amazing experience for each and every player.

In order to help with the team formation process, we ask that players register to indicate that they are interested in being considered for a tournament team. Registering doesn't not mean that your player will be selected. It just helps us know that you are interested and understand the commitment required. It also helps us get a head start on the required paperwork!9
Please register your player by Wednesday May 29th if they wish to be considered for a summer tournament team. We will form teams by June 8th, 2024.
