2023 All-Star Player Selection Process

Due to USA Softball rules and regulations, All-Star teams may not practice until May 8, 2023.

4S Ranch Girls Softball League shall choose Players for the All-Star season based upon the following criteria:

Eligibility

  • All players wishing to try out for an All-Star team must register below.
  • Eligible players must have participated in at least 75% of the team's recreational season games and practices.
  • Per USA Softball rules and regulations, a player participating in more than one USA Softball recreation league must declare by March 31, 2023 which league they wish to be eligible for All-Star selection. Please communicate directly to [email protected] the name of the player and the league they wish to be eligible.
  • Per USA Softball rules & regulations, any player participating on a non-USA softball team other than their recreation team (i.e. All-Star or Travel) after March 31, 2023 is NOT eligible to play All-Stars. Players must cease playing outside of their recreation team by March 31, 2023 in order to be eligible for All-Stars. Please communicate directly to [email protected] the name of the player and the division they wish to be eligible.
  • All players must submit the All-Star Application form.
Tryout

  • The All-Star Tryout will occur during the week of May 1st. There are no make-up dates. Please check the 4s Ranch Softball website for time and location for each division. Concessions may be afforded for players that miss the Tryout, at the sole discretion of the Board.
  • The Tryout is open to all players in Divisions 8U and above. A minimum 10 players are needed to field an All-Star team.
  • All-Star Manager(s) and/or Coaches are required to evaluate players during the Tryout.
  • Players will not be selected for any All-Star team prior to the official All-Star Tryout.

Selection Process

  • See the 4S Ranch Girls Softball Rules and Regulations.
  • Players will be selected by, but not limited to: athletic ability, commitment, leadership, citizenship and sportsmanship as viewed both at the Tryout and demonstrated throughout the Recreation Season. Selection will be determined based on all available information in forming teams, including but not limited to: player age, experience, skills, positions played, strength and balance of All-Star teams (if more than one team will be fielded in a division), behavior of the player and player’s family. 

We look forward to another exciting All-Star season. Please contact me with any questions.

2023 All-Star Commitment Letter

Dear All-Star Player Candidates and Parents,

Thank you for your interest in the 4S Ranch Girls Softball League All-Star program. The All-Star Tryout will be conducted during the week of May 1st. All-Star evaluation details will be posted on the website (www.4ssoftball.com). The Recreational Season is about individual instruction, learning the rules of the game, opportunities for every girl to play multiple positions, and having fun. The All-Star season is about team competition, developing advanced skills, instilling a winning attitude, and having fun. Since there is a significant difference between the Recreation and All-Star experience, it is important to establish expectations for the All-Star season.

Players shall abide by the following rules:

  • Attend all practices and games on time.
  • Accept whatever role/position/contribution the Manager designates for you.
  • Be willing to play positions that are unfamiliar to you.
  • Demonstrate a positive attitude and support your teammates.
  • The team is more important than the player.
Parents shall abide by the following rules:

  • Support the coaches and players.
  • Consider the team’s success as a success for your daughter and a rewarding experience.
  • Do not approach coaches during warm-ups, games, or practices to discuss playing time, positions, batting order, etc. Concerns must be addressed off the field at a mutually agreed time. Failure to adhere may result in suspension.
  • Parents and players may be asked to participate in fundraising efforts.
  • The All-Star season is a demanding schedule. You should expect to practice multiple times per week and play in 7-9 weekend tournaments (Friday - Sunday). The likelihood for most tournaments is multiple games on Saturdays and Sundays.

If your daughter is selected to a team, she will be notified after the assessments. Should your daughter not be selected, please let her know how tough the competition was and that she did a great job.

Our All-Star selection process is outlined in our Rules and Regulations.

If your daughter is selected to a team, here are a few things to remember:

Financial Commitment

  • The base financial commitment is typically $575 - $650 per player.
  • This cost covers a high-quality uniforms, all tournament fees, and USA Softball participant player card. 100% of this money is spent on All-Star purchases (there is no residual profit to the league).
  • There may be additional travel cost in the event you chose to stay in a hotel.
  • Teams that advance to the state and/or national tournaments will incur additional fees and travel expenses.
Time Commitment

  • Tournament dates are listed in the All-Star Application form. Teams that advance to state and/or national tournaments are expected to play until mid-July.
  • Tournaments generally start on Fridays and end on Sundays; however you should be available to play on Thursdays and Mondays (including holidays).
  • Team managers will determine the practice days. Most teams will conduct 3-4 two-hour practices per week, plus additional time for pitchers. All-Star practices will commence on approximately May 8, 2023.
Team Commitment

  • Playing time, positioning, and batting order are NOT guaranteed and may not be equal. There is a possibility that some players may not play in an entire game, as this is a competitive All-Star environment.

Finally, 4S Ranch Softball would like to remind our parents and players that participation in the All-Star program is a privilege that requires a new level of commitment. All players are exposed to a high level of competition, and this is a great opportunity for your daughter.
