ALL STAR PLAYER SELECTION PROCESS

Voting for All-Star teams shall take place immediately following the conclusion of the regular season, and if available, the publication of the league leaders through statistics.  There will be three stages of the All-Star selection, in order:
1.       League Vote
2.      All-Star Committee vote
3.       Manager’s Option


1. League Vote:

a For the 9/10/11, 10/11/12, Junior and Senior Divisions, each player, coach, manager, volunteer umpire and BoD Member of the League shall be allowed one vote per division.  Player members may only vote in the division in which they played. 

b. For the 7u, 8u, and 9u All-Star Teams, each manager, coach, volunteer umpire and Regular Member of the League shall be allowed one vote per division. 

c.      “One vote” for the purposes of All-Star selection means the voter can select or write-in up to 12 players to be on the applicable All-Star team.   The vote can be either on paper or internet voting software.

d.      The top 9 vote getters in each division shall automatically be on the All-Star team. 

e.      All Player Members are eligible to vote, but only one Regular Member vote is allowed per household.

2.      All-Star Committee vote:

a.    The next 3 players selected in each age group will be decided upon by the managers, with the assistance of the All-Star Committee, taking into consideration the overall team make-up, the needs of the team(s) and the strengths/weakness of the player(s). 

b. Each manager in that regular season division and member of the All-Star Committee will pick 6 players not previously selected by League Vote. Managers may not vote for any player on his/her own regular season team. 

c The top 3 players will be on the All-Star team, with the bottom 3 vote getters comprising the alternates should one or more of the selected players not be able to commit to the international tournament. 

3.       Manager’s Option

a. The team manager shall then receive one (1) “manager’s option” to select one player at their discretion to fill the roster to 13 players. 
 
4. The President, Player Agent, and All-Star Committee shall be the only persons able to tally and view the votes.  Under no circumstances shall the player composition of the All-Star teams be shared or discussed with any player, parent, or non-voting person prior to the announcement of the teams at the Closing Ceremonies

5. Immediately following the announcement of selections at Closing Ceremonies, the Player Agent and manager of each team shall request commitment from every player to participate with no more than two absences from any game for the duration of the international tournament.

6. Should a player selected to be on an All-Star team not be able to commit to the entire international tournament, and with the approval of the All-Star Committee, that player shall be removed from the roster, and the highest vote getting alternate from the All-Star Committee Vote shall be selected, and so on, until the final team of 13 committed players is identified.  The 4, 5, 6 alternates and so on shall be the highest vote getters in the League Vote not already on the team.
