District 64 All-Stars

Updated Friday May 26, 2017 by Davis Little League.

What is the District 64 All-Star Tournament?

Davis Little League is a member of California District 64. There are 12 local leagues that comprise District 64, including Davis American, Davis National, Dixon, Esparto, Travis, Rio Vista, Vacaville American, Vacaville Central, Vacaville National, Woodland American, Woodland National and Winters.

All-Star teams start by playing a D64 intra-district tournament.  Davis American and National Little Leagues each support a 9/10 All-Star team (comprised of 9 & 10 year-olds), a 10/11 All-Star team (comprised of 10 & 11 year olds), an 11/12 All-Star team (comprised of 11 & 12-year-olds), a 50/70 Intermediate All-Star team and a Juniors All-Star team (comprised of Juniors players).  District 64 hosts an annual "All-Star" tournament at the end of the regular Little League season. 

All levels can progress to Sectional and then Divisional Championships.  11/12 year olds have the opportunity, should they continue to win, to advance to the Regional Championships and, ultimately, to the Little League World Series in Williamsport.

Every Davis Little League player age 9 or older that has met eligibility requirements may participate in tournament play provided they are selected to the team. 

It is expected that every player selected to a District 64 Tournament Team will commit to any postseason play necessary, including practices and games, throughout the District 64 tournament period. Players selected to the District 64 Tournament Team are expected to prioritize their D64 Team above any other non-DLL "Travel Ball Teams".  Every year there are deserving kids that are not selected to the D64 Team.   Nothing is worse than a selected player not committing fully to the development of their D64 Team and Teammates. Postseason play will begin immediately following the regular spring season.

Selection Processes

All-Star Player Selection Process

Each all-star team will consist of 12- 14 players. Every registered player/parent will be sent an email (to address in registration system) from the league asking if they would like to be considered for all-stars. Players/parents are asked to respond no later than the specified deadline by applying, at no cost, through the league's online registration system.

Once the deadline has passed for submission of the players, the all star teams will be selected using the following process:

  • All-Star managers choose from the list of available and eligible players collected through the registration system.
  • Items considered for player selection include:
    • The player's regular season performance,
    • The player's regular season participation,
    • The tournament team's "critical needs" (catcher, pitcher, shortstop etc.),
    • Committee members’ personal knowledge of players and their abilities,
    • Input from the Division Managers
    • Input from the President, Director of Baseball, Player Rep and the Tournament Team coaches.

 

All-Star Coach Selection Process

Every coach is asked if he/she wishes to be considered for the position of all-star coach (Manager, assistant coach or, either) at any level/age group.  He/she needs to submit a request to the Board of Directors via the league registrar by May 1st clearly stating which team he/she wishes to coach (i.e. 9-10 year-old team) together with his/her relevant experience.

The Board of Directors then meet to discuss the list of potential Managers. Together the Board selects the Manager for each team based on the coach's experience, feedback from parents and from other coaches etc.  The Head Coach then selects the assistant coach(es).  The Board of Directors will review and approve each coach selected.  All coaches must have been a manager or an assistant coach during the regular season.
