    Summer All Star Applications Due May 10

     

    We hope you are enjoying the Spring Little League baseball season.  We still have a lot of baseball to play at SRVLL, but it is time to turn our attention to the summer competitive programs we offer.  There are several teams that will be formed and this article describes the teams, the process, and the application you need to complete for these teams which are distinct from our recreational summer program.
     
    First and foremost, what you see on television in August at Williamsport is what is traditionally know as International All-Star play.  SRVLL will have three age-based teams that will begin participation in what is called District play (competing against the other leagues in our District 57) in late June:
     
    10s
    11s
    12s
     
    Each of these teams technically is allowed to have players that are a year younger participate although historically the majority of the players are the older eligible age (e.g. these teams are technically called 9/10, 10/11, and 11/12).  These teams will participate in International All-Star play until they are eliminated, at which time they will compete in tournaments hosted by various leagues in District 57 outlined here - http://www.eteamz.com/CA57/news/index.cfm?cat=257989.  These tournaments run through the end of July.

    How are the managers selected?  Managers or coaches of regular season teams have applied and will be interviewed by our All-Star Director (Damon Bowers) and our President (Scott Tinetti).  Coaches are selected by the Manager from the pool of chosen players.


    The Selection process for each all star team is comprised  of 3 criteria:

    A player vote, a Spring season manager vote, and an All-Star manager selection.  AT NO POINT IN TIME ARE PARENTS ALLOWED TO CAMPAIGN ON BEHALF OF THEIR CHILDREN WITH MANAGERS OR OTHER PLAYERS.  THIS WILL RESULT IN A DISQUALIFICATION OF SAID CHILD IF THE BOARD DETERMINES THIS IS TAKING PLACE.

    1) Player Vote: All applicants for each division will be placed on a player ballot. Spring players from each division will vote for the players in their age group that they feel should be placed on the all star team. The ballots will be counted and the top 4 players to receive votes for each division will be placed on the team.

    2) Spring Managers will vote on the next 6 players.

    3) The All Star Manager will have 3-4 subsequent selections.

    The All-Star teams require a large commitment by the players and parents.  It is expected that players are available for 100% of practices and games.  Last summer many teams practiced twice a day every day leading up to the start of District play, with professionally supervised practice in the morning and practice with the volunteer Manager and coaches in the afternoon.  Please take this into consideration when choosing whether or not to apply.
     
    B-Teams - It is our intention to have B-teams at each of the above age levels which will participate in tournaments throughout our District 57 (basically the 680 corridor).  This is very competitive baseball and we strongly encourage anyone who applies for the All-Star teams to participate on the B teams if they are not selected.
     
    Lastly, each summer there are several tournaments for league-age 9 year-olds only.  This is competitive baseball but with slightly more scheduling flexibility.  For instance, if these teams elect to participate in 4 summer tournaments (typically three games over Saturday and Sunday and 1-3 more games in bracket play the following week during the evening), each player may participate in 3 of the 4 tournaments leaving one free weekend.  This is at the discretion of the 9s Manager and based in part on how many players apply.  This is not recreational summer baseball, but competitive baseball for 9s only.
     
    The cost to participate per player is roughly $300.  This covers tournament entry fees, training, insurance, additional equipment and uniforms, etc.
     
    Please see the All Star Application link below and let Terry Abbey (tabbey1954@gmail.com) know if you have any questions.  The voting will take place during the first week of playoffs.  The deadline to submit an application is May 10th.
     
    Thanks and good luck!

    2016 SlugFest Winners

     

    Dear SRVLL Families:

     

    Thanks for a very successful Photo Day and Slugfest! Special thanks to all the parent volunteers who graciously donated their time to help the event run smoothly. I hope you enjoyed your time spent hanging out with other baseball families, grabbing food at the Snack Shack, and watching your sluggers slug it out on the field.

     

    Below are the first and second place winners in each division. The division directors will present the trophies within the next 7-10 days at a game to be determined in conjunction with the winners’ coaches.

     

    We raised more than $1,000 for the Challenger Program, and the league will make a matching donation for this very worthy cause, so we will donate over $2,000 to the program. Thanks for all your support!

     

    Congratulations to our 2016 Slugfest winners!
