TOURNAMENT TEAM SELECTION PROCESS

 

Overview:

 

The “Must’s” for All Players:

 

  • Registered and assigned a team prior to any tournament effort
  • Appear on a valid regular season roster to be covered by insurance for the tournament
  • Appear in a minimum of 60% of scheduled games

Note: Any player that does not meet this requirement is not eligible to participate on the tournament team.

  • Commit to the practice and game schedule as outlined by the team manager for the entire length of the tournament.

Note: If the player and/or parent can not commit, than that player should immediately notify the Team Manager. That player MAY be passed over and another player replace her, chosen by the manager from the final ballot list, before the official team announcements are made and/or rosters submitted to LL.

 

The “Must’s” for the League:

 

  • Complete the registration process
  • Determine tournament team Managers based on a vote of the rostered coaches by May 23, 2021.
  • Decide when tournament teams will be created and how many players will be on each team.
  • Explain to all what the expected commitment will be for the players and parents selected.
  • The VP/Team Managers will contact players on the final ballot ahead of time to determine availability.

Note: If a parent determines that a nominated player cannot fulfill the commitment, a written communication will need to be sent to the Player Agent and Division VP.

  • Tournament Rosters and Managers will be presented to the BOD for approval no later than May 24, 2021.
  • Each team must have scheduled and played at least 12 games by the completion of the District 2021 May Madness Tournament for the players on that team to be eligible to be rostered on the Tournament Team.

    • Each Manager & Coach must cast 9 votes for 9 different players.
    • The designated vote counter may not have a child who is on the nomination list.
    • The Players who do not receive sufficient votes to make the team via this voting process will be listed in order of the votes received and retained for possible inclusion on the Tournament Team, if one of the original players does not accept her position.

            Note: The Manager is not required to pick up a player in the specific order when      adding players.
