How does Delta Little League select the "all-star" team?

The Manager

The Coaches

District tournaments for majors, 9-10-11, and 8-9-10 teams allow 2 coaches in addition to the manager for a maximum of 3 adult coaches in the dugout (1 manager, 2 coaches). The 2 coaches are selected by the manager, but must meet Little League eligibility criteria (must have head- or assistant coached during the regular season, passed a background check, and must complete all necessary paperwork).

The Players

The all-star selection process is simultaneously one of the most rewarding and most painful experiences for coaches and players alike. There will always be players left out. There will always be parents that feel their child should be an all-star.

As of the 2023 season, the following was the all-star selection process:

Head coaches of the appropriate division were given a list of all players eligible based on league age. Coaches were asked to selected 20 choices for nomination. The nomination list was compiled and coaches were asked to rank the players on the list. Ranks were averaged and the 12 highest-ranked players were invited to participate on the all-star team.
