Each season, the Board of Directors shall determine the age levels at which tournament teams, sometimes called all-star teams, will be formed, and the number of tournaments each team shall enter under official WMLL sponsorship.
Generally, there shall be two tournament teams, one from each chartered league formed at each level for which there is an official Little League tournament (WMLL is comprised of two separate charters, or divisions…WMLL American and WMLL National…due to the size of our program). These teams are designated as “District” teams (only one team is formed for Senior Lg). Subject to sufficient numbers of interested players and coaches, WMLL shall form third tournament teams, designated “Open” teams, at the following age levels: 9, 10, 11, and 12 year olds.
Subject to sufficient numbers of interested players and coaches, WMLL shall also form one or two “Open” teams for 13 year olds, and one “Open” team for 14 year olds. District teams shall be selected first, followed by Open teams.
WMLL forms a number of softball tournament teams, sometimes called all-star teams, at different age levels (U10/Minor, U12/Major and/or U14/Junior) as an extra opportunity for spring/summer season players & coaches. Each tournament team plays in a number of area tournaments (determined by the WMLL Board of Directors). The earliest tournaments typically are in mid-June & the latest tournaments are typically in the end of July. Dates for the tournaments will be posted to the WMLL website as soon as they are determined.
