Little League All Stars


Understanding Little League’s Regular Season vs Tournament Teams
Little League offers two distinct experiences for participants.  The regular season, plus the Snoqualmie Valley Playoff Championships (Upper Division), which provides an opportunity for every league participant to learn and experience the games of baseball or softball, receive ample playing opportunity and compete against local friends. 

Following the regular season, Little League offers a secondary season with Tournament teams, primarily known as All Stars teams.  The Little League All Stars tournament is a competitive post-season competition where All Stars teams from each league compete for a District Championship, with winners advancing to the State Tournament. Majors baseball and softball All Stars teams, if they advance from State and continue to win participate in Regionals and finally the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA (for baseball – softball World Series are in a different city each year).

The All Stars experience is Little League’s most competitive program and quite different from the normal Spring program because the goal is to win and advance to the next level.

Little League All Star Governing Rules
The Little League All Star program is governed by the official Little League Baseball Tournament Rules and Guidelines and Little League Softball Tournament Rules and Guidelines Falls Little League uses “All Stars” and “All Stars team” to refer to the tournament team defined by these rules and guidelines.

All Stars Committee and Selection Process
Falls Little League established the “All Stars Committee” in 2019 for the purpose of managing the selection of players, managers, and coaches participating in All Stars teams at each division level. This committee shall consist of the League President, League Vice President, Vice-President of Baseball/Softball, Player Agent Baseball/Softball, and Board Approved Independent 3rd Party Contributor (when available).

Defining the Goal of All Stars for Falls Little League
The formation of a Falls Little League All Stars team, both in the selection of players along with the coaching staff (Manager and Assistant Coaches), is targeted at forming the most competitive roster from eligible and available Falls Little League players.  The primary purpose of the All Stars team is to compete in an ultra-competitive environment to their best of their ability, while collectively striving to win and advance in post-season tournaments.

  • Manager selection should be based on finding a leader who has the baseball/softball knowledge base to build, prepare and lead a team in tournament play.  He/she must have the ability to develop team chemistry in a short-amount of time, position players to take advantage of skills and capabilities to help the overall team, and clearly define strategies to maximize on-field performance.  He/she must possess the ability to make tough decisions and the will-power to be objective even when presented with inherit challenges of leading a team with his/her son on the team and the dynamics of parents (many of whom may be close friends).  He/she must be able to effectively communicate with both players and parents to manage scheduling and playing time expectations.
  • Player selection is targeted at not only determining top league baseball/softball performers (skills, abilities and player attributes), but also identifying players who have begun to build the mental ability to control themselves in stressful and challenging situations.
  • League families participation in the All Star Team experience is not limited to on-field preparations and execution, but off the field support with player/family discussions reviewing playing requirements and support of a positive team environment.
