2021 All-Stars Frequently Asked Questions

What is All-Stars?
All-Stars is the highly competitive post-season tournament play sanctioned by Little League International.

Who is eligible for All-Stars?
Any player league age 8 or older who is currently registered for Seniors, Juniors, Majors, AAA Minors, or AA Minors is eligible. To be eligible, players must be league age 8 or older, and have participated in a minimum of 8 of his/her team's regular season games for majors division and below or 6 of his/her team’s regular season games for seniors.

How many teams does HDLL field for All-Stars?

Available divisions to nominate for are shown below. Formation of teams depends on the number of nominations received (HDLL may not field a team at every level). If unsure of which team to nominate your player for, please refer to the suggestions noted in parenthesis next to each level. Actual team placement is determined by the All-Star Committee.


     Seniors: League ages 13-16 (Seniors division players)
     50/70: League ages 11-13 (Seniors and Majors division players)
     Little League: League ages 10-12 (Majors division players)
     Minors: League ages 9-11 (Majors and Minors AAA division players)
     Minors: League ages 8-10 (Majors, Minors AAA and AA division players)
     TOPS: League ages 8-9 (Minors AAA, AA and Machine Pitch division players)


     Little League: League ages 10-12 (Majors division players)
     Minors: League ages 9-11 (Majors and Minors division players)
     Minors: League ages 8-10 (Majors and Minors division players)

What is the time commitment?
The time commitment for All-Stars is significant.  Teams typically practice 5-7 days per week for about two hours at a time.  Players should be available for all practices and games.   When nominating your player, please list ALL dates  that your family will be out of town or otherwise unavailable to participate in All-Stars practices. If conflicts exist with games, then your player will be ineligible for the All-Stars team.

How does the All-Stars selection process work?
Any eligible player wanting to be considered for All-Star selection completes, with his/her family, the on-line All-Star nomination.  For 2021, nominations must be completed on-line no later than 11:59 PM on April 30 (subject to be extended). Nominations are then reviewed by the player agent and members of the HDLL board of directors to ensure completeness. 

When will we find out if our player has been selected?
There are strict requirements governing when All-Star rosters can be released. No person participating in the selection process is permitted to disclose whether a player was or was not selected for All-Stars before the date prescribed by Little League International. For 2021, that date is May 15. Tryouts are tentatively scheduled to be held as early as May 15. Teams will be announced the evening of tryouts. Most teams will begin practicing right away.

When do practices begin?
Practice schedule is still TBD

Who coaches/manages the All-Stars teams?

The HDLL Board of Directors has currently selected the following Managers:


     Seniors: No Team
     50/70: BJ Harlan
     Little League: Ray Montes
     Minors 9-11: Aaron Wheeler
     Minors 8-10: Rustin Eikleberry
     TOPS: Matt Mills


     Little League: No Team
     Minors 9-11: No Team
     Minors 8-10: Geoff Lewelling

What is the cost to participate in an All-Star team?
There is a $150 fee per All-Star player to assist with costs. In addition, families can expect to purchase new baseball/softball pants for their All-Star player. Uniform jerseys/hats and practice uniforms/hats will be provided. Games are held throughout Maricopa County and across the state of Arizona. For long distance travel, families can expect a small amount of travel costs to get to and from games.

How long does the All-Stars season last?
That really depends on how well the team does in the tournament. Our Juniors teams could play through the middle of August and our Majors teams could play through the end of August. Our 9/10/11 and 8/9/10 teams could play until mid July. Our TOPS team will play a one week tournament in early June.
