All Stars takes place immediately after the Spring Season. All registered softball players are able to self-nominate, but they must try out to be considered for the team. In order to try out for the team, the child must have parental consent. Trying out does not guarantee a slot on the team.
Commitment Requirements: If your child is selected to a 2022 All-Star Team, the following requirements must be met.
1. All-Star registration fee ($150) to be paid in full before the All-Star draft takes place, and it will only be refunded if your daughter is not selected. This fee covers uniform (one jersey and a pair of socks), tournament emblem, field usage, insurance, and PONY tournament fees. 2. Players must be available for all All-Star activities; including but not limited to practices, practice games, team meetings, and regular scheduled games/tournaments.
3. Parent/Guardian to be available as volunteers for concession and field maintenance duties when needed.
4. Travel expenses (if any) are the responsibility of each player’s family.
5. Understanding that if your child is selected for one of the 2022 All-Star teams that participation in games is the manager’s decision. Your child may not participate in every game at every tournament. There is no 2-inning rule during the All-Star season.
All-Star teams will practice at least 2 times a week. This effort begins immediately at the end of the regular season and will continue to the middle of July. Tournament weekends are usually Friday-Sunday, except the World Series is a whole week. Warm up tournaments, Sectionals, and Regionals are usually played in Round Rock or Georgetown. The World Series switches between Laredo, TX and Louisiana each year.
Tournaments: The dates for the current year come out in April.
Coaches Meeting: TBD
Warm Up: TBD (usually the last weekend of May)
Warm Up: TBD (usually the first weekend in June)
Sectionals: TBD (usually the second weekend in June)
Regionals: TBD (usually the third weekend in June)
World Series: TBD (usually the second week in July)
All-Star teams will consist of at least 12 players but no more than 22 players on a team. All players must provide a copy of a birth certificate and a signed medical wavier. Rules for all the tournaments follow PONY rules. There is no required play time per player, so if there are more players on a team, this potentially results in less play time, or none. We strongly encourage having frank conversations with the coach before agreeing to play.
CPYL tries to have at least one team in each age division and the coach that wins the Spring season is the coach that is nominated to coach the all-star team. If there are enough players to be able to form more than one team in an age division, CPYL allows and encourages this. CPYL encourages the head coach to combine their coaching staff with other coaches from each team in the age division, but this is not guaranteed.
