The Little League All-Star tournament is a competitive postseason competition providing All-Star teams with an opportunity for a higher level of play and competition within the regional Little League system. 

Being selected as an All-Star means that you have been nominated for a chance to represent West Seattle Little League in tournament play. This honor means that you have shown skill, sportsmanship, and dedication this season and will best represent the league in competition and character. Before a player can be nominated, the interested family has to "opt-in".

  • Players must opt-in before 8:00PM (PST) on May 15, 2023. Opt-in form will be emailed to Minors, Majors and Juniors families on May 5, 2023. OPT-IN IS NOW CLOSED.
  • Players must meet current Little League International rules for All-Star eligibility (for example, a player must have played in a minimum of 8 of regular season games).
  • Players must commit to being available for all practices and tournament games, unless due to injury, illness, or other special circumstances, with prior approval by the All-Star Manager. Other sports commitments (including travel ball or other league play) and family vacations are not considered a valid reason to miss All-Star practice or activities.
  • To be eligible for the 8-9-10 All-Star Team, a player must be the appropriate age and be able to play current Minors rules (but can be in either Minors or Majors Division).
  •  To be eligible for the Juniors All-Star Team, a player must be the appropriate age and be able to play current Juniors rules (but can be in either Majors or Juniors Division)


All WSLL Minors, Majors and Juniors regular season team players and Managers/Coaches along with the selected All-Star Manager will have an opportunity to vote on the players who opted-in. Please see our bylaws for a detailed outline of the All-Star process and how players at various ages are selected.

Player selections will be based on:
- Character 
– consistently demonstrating a spirit of fair play, integrity, adaptiveness, humility, confidence and perseverance whether winning or losing.
- Leadership – consistently demonstrating a positive attitude, hustle, cooperation, care for teammates on the field and in the dugout, and an overall commitment to the team.
- Skills and knowledge – consistently demonstrating strong regular season on-field performance, ability to compete, experience at various positions, and skill with batting, fielding, baserunning and situational awareness.
For players who did not opt-in, their name will NOT appear on any ballots. There are always questions from parents on this asking why their player was not on the ballot.


  • Considering the required level of commitment, All-Star play is not for every player or family.
  • 100% attendance to all activities (practice, team events, tournaments) is expected, which may affect work and vacation schedules.
  • There will be practices/events/tournaments up to 6-7 days per week. 
  • Practices happen after school and can last up to 2-4 hours.
  • The season length is variable, depending on the age of the team and depending on how far the team advances. Families should ensure they are available through July and in some cases August.
  • Commitments to other sports/teams are secondary to All-Stars (All-Stars team always holds priority over other teams)
  • Significant travel and expenses may be required. We never want the cost to prohibit this opportunity for a chosen player. Contact [email protected] for scholarships information.
  • Tournament Play rules and expectations are different from regular season play. Not all players will receive equal playing time.
  • All-Star Managers are voted in by their peers; the selected manager and coaches have a due diligence to field the best competitive team from our league.


Immediately upon a player being selected for an All-Star team, the player agents will begin the player verification process and the following forms will need to be provided. Please note that many of these forms were already submitted at the start of the regular season but need to be submitted a second time according to LLI rules. Be prepared to provide the following or the player will have to forfeit eligibility.

(1) Player's Original Birth Certificate
(2) LLI Tournament Player Verification Form
(3) Medical Release Form
(4) School Enrollment Form, D II Waiver Form or 3 Proofs of Residency


What does it mean to “play up” for All-Stars?
If you elect during the opt-in process for your child to be considered to “play up” that means that you would be comfortable with your player being considered to play up for an All-Stars team above their league age. For example, if you elect for your league age 11 year old to “play up” that means we will include your child’s name on the ballot for managers/coaches to vote for the 12s team. 

If my child is selected for the All-Stars team, what can we expect (practices and games)?
All-Star teams practice at least 5 nights a week with practice length times varying. There may also be some pre-tournament scrimmages in and outside of West Seattle.

What are the eligibility requirements for a player to be considered for an All-Star team?
Players must meet current Little League International rules for All-Star eligibility:
- Must have played in a minimum of 8 regular season games. If a player missed games due to injury or illness, they will need a doctor's note. 
- Meets the criteria established by Little League’s “Residency and School Attendance Player Eligibility Requirement".
- Meets the age requirements for the All-Star team: 8-10 year-olds for 10s team, 9-11 year-olds for 11s team, 10-12 year-olds for 12s team, 12-14 year-olds for Juniors team.

How much play time will my child get on the All-Stars team? 
Families and players should recognize that All-Stars Tournament play time is very different from the regular season in WSLL. The only requirement is that every player on the roster bats in order. This may mean that some players do not get any field time in a particular game, as there are no minimum requirements for this as of 2023. With that, everyone who makes the All-Stars roster is there for a reason, and will be expected to fill a role and contribute in meaningful ways. 

How many players are selected for each team?
This will vary depending on the manager based on tournament playing rules. Typically, most managers field a team of 13 players.

Do the Jamboree games count towards the 8-game minimum for player eligibility?
No, the Jamboree games do not count towards the 8-game minimum. Only regular season regulation games count.

How are players selected for a team?
Players are selected through several different mechanisms:
(1) Player vote - the All-Star committee will conduct player voting after Minors, Majors and Juniors games; the 3 players at each age level with the most votes will be selected for the team
(2) Managers/coaches vote - The Managers and one primary coach for each team will vote on remaining eligible players; 6 players will be selected for the team through this voting process
(3) All-Star Manager remaining players selection - The All-Star Manager will then select from the remaining eligible players to complete the team roster

If my family already has a vacation planned during June thru July, how would that affect All-Stars eligibility?
If you already have vacation planned during this time, please do NOT submit your child’s name for consideration. The All-Star team is a huge time commitment and players are expected to be at all practices and games. Families should ensure they are available through July and in some cases August. 100% attendance to all activities (practice, team events, tournaments) is expected.

What will happen if there aren't sufficient player opt-ins?
If we don’t have enough players to field a team at various levels, then we won't field a team.
