Little League Baseball All-Star Assessments

By Chris James 05/16/2024, 12:00pm EDT

Little League baseball players that are "league age 9-12" (born between 9/1/2011 - 8/31/2015) are eligible to try out for a roster spot on a District All-Star team. In addition to assessing the players throughout the season, there will be All-Star specific assessments for players that are interested in participating. Please keep in mind that there may be 11 or 12 roster spots per team. Assessment criteria includes, but is not limited to: Baseball skills, summer availability, input from spring season coaches, player attitude, player sportsmanship, assessment attendance, spring season performance, and assessment performance. 

The assessments will take place at a series of All-Star clinics this week at Volunteer Field. Interested players should attend AT LEAST one clinic. Little League games and practices should take priority, therefore players that have games or practices on Monday or Tuesday afternoon can arrive late to the clinics. All others should arrive early in order to get started right away. Time slots are listed below:

  • Sunday, May 19th from 6:00-8:00pm.
  • Monday, May 20th from 7:30-9:00pm. (We will start in batting cages until games conclude).
  • Tuesday, May 21st from 7:30-9:00pm. (We will start in batting cages until games conclude).


Parents, please explain to your players that these assessments will help to determine a limited number of roster spots, and all that we ask of the players is to do their very best and have fun. There will be additional summer league opportunities for players that are not selected to an All-Star roster.

Finally, please fill out the form that was sent via email, including any summer dates in June or July that your player will be unavailable. We will need the majority of our All-Star players to be fully available for a condensed, action packed season with a full practice and game schedule. Practices will start in early June, and the game schedule will start late in June. Based on how far the team(s) advance, the All-Star season could last until mid-late July.

Please reach out to me directly with any questions.

Thank you,

Chris James - Vice President of Baseball - Newington Little League
