District Team Selection

PPLLL believes that it is important to have a selection process that is transparent and fair to all players. All of the players shall have an opportunity to make the team regardless of popularity, school affiliation or parental influence.

The All-Star selection process will involve several steps (detailed below) and once approved by the PPLLL Board, the rosters will be announced based on the dates set forth in the current Little League (LL) Rules and Regulations. Once finalized, the rosters will be submitted to the District Administrator. 

Nomination: Little League Managers and Coaches will nominate the All-Star Player Candidates from their team and the other teams in the specific age bracket. Player Candidates are evaluated and nominated on multiple criteria with these ideals in mind: - Performance, skill-level and ability to compete- Attitude, hustle, team spirit, team leadership- Sportsmanship, overall character and integrity 

The All-Star team’s selections are completed on the basis of these criteria and on the needs of the All-Star teams (i.e. are there adequate catchers and pitchers, and other key positions represented). 

Confidentiality and Oversight: The nomination process is facilitated by the League President and assisted by the Player Agent. All nominations from Managers are submitted anonymously. The results (selection order, etc.), and Manager Deliberations about the prospective Player nominees, are strictly confidential. The President, Player Agent, Nominating Managers & Coaches, and All-Star managers shall refrain from discussing any Player Candidate nominations or rankings outside of the nomination process and the selection meetings. 

Final Team Configurations: After Initial Player Candidate Selections have been completed and the final recommended slate of nominated Player Candidates for each All-Star team is submitted to the President, the Player Agent, President and All-Star team Managers shall have the authority to select the All-Star teams for their respective age groups Final All-Star team’s player selection shall be approved by a majority of the board of directors at the time of the meeting. Board members shall refrain from discussing any Player Candidate nominations or rankings outside of the nomination process and selection meetings. 

When deemed necessary, the President,  the Player Agent, the All-Star Managers and the Board of Directors can call for Try Outs to manage any issues surrounding fielding the team
