All-star teams are selected by the All-star team coaches in conjunction with the league commissioners and are based in part on recommendations from all of the regular season coaches in that division. All-star coaches are volunteers from the regular season coaches at each division and are appointed by the commissioner and approved by the RLL Board.
To be selected for an all-star team, a player must have played in 60% of his team’s games and meet all Little League eligibility requirements, including residency. The player should be available for the entire tournament and a pre-tournament practice period.
All-star teams generally practice for two-three weeks prior to their tournament. Participants are required to pay a participation fee to cover the tournament entry fee and the cost of uniforms.
