League Update (5/10) Tournament Play

Hi Everyone,

After attending the Presidents meeting tonight, they still do not have exact dates for All Stars. It's somewhere between June 16th and June 30th. Supposedly I will have the dates Sunday, but I'm not holding my breath. A lot of this is due to the town of Gilbert making it extremely difficult to allow a Little League to host a tournament at a Gilbert facility.

I also found out we (little league teams) are not supposed to use the word All Stars and supposed to use the word "Tournament".

Based off all of the responses we got from our survey (we got 43) we will be fielding a team in League Age 8-10 (which is our Minors) and Jr/Sr (League Age 12-14). I will be sending out emails to those divisions for "evaluations" (I can't use the word "tryout" anymore).

Minors will be the only division who will be having an evaluation, given the quantity who are interested. Even though 12 have responded with a "Yes" (which is the perfect number), the rest have not responded with a "No" (we are missing 5 responses). So to be safe, we are still holding an evaluation in case more girls decide to show up.

The time will be 5/14 at 6 PM @ Brimhall for the 8-10 yr olds. Jr/Sr. will not have an evaluation so they do not need to show up that night.

Final rosters will be decided after 5/14, and once everyone has turned in their proof of residency

Honestly, guys, I won't be surprised if I'm missing a detail here or there because this is my first time going through this process, and the meetings aren't as helpful as needed sometimes. So I've been on Little League's site trying to get the info I need for "Tournament" play. I'll contact who I need to as needed, but for the most part, as long as your kiddo is League Age eligible and can provide proof of residency, then you will be eligible for Tournament play.

Stay tuned community, I will dish it out once I know.
