About Postseason

Postseason Play

SBGLL's goal is to make the opportunity to play postseason available to as many players as possible. However, it can be a select process, and it is most appropriate for the players that are most interested and accomplished.

Information regarding postseason opportunities is generally circulated to families in early May. SBGLL's goal is to make the opportunity to play postseason available to as many players as possible. However, it can be a select process, and it is most appropriate for the players that are most interested and accomplished.

Players that want to participate in postseason at the all-star level need to be available for all practices and games. The main requirements for participation are player interest and commitment.

There is a postseason fee that is determined annually based upon expected costs. We will leave it to the coaches to set ground rules for attendance, but in general, players need to be available for the duration of the tournaments, and they should not have significant vacations scheduled that lead to missed practice time.

We hope to field teams for Juniors All-Stars, 11-12 All Stars, 10-11 All Stars, 8-10 All Stars, 10-12 Honors and 8-10 Honors with all teams comprised of players that are playing at the AAA, Majors, Juniors levels that year. Tournament dates and locations are posted at the beginning of each postseason, but can generally run through June and July depending on the age group.

Post Season General Information

At the end of the season, teams will disband. At this point, All Star and Honor Teams will be selected from the pool of players who have an interest to continue in post-season play and have registered by the deadline. South Beaverton Girls Little League (SBGLL) is eligible to field teams if applicable for the following tournaments: Majors All Star (11/12 year olds), 9/11 year old All Star, 8/10 All Star, 11/12 Honors and 8-10 Honors.

League Expectations:
To be selected for a post-season team is a privilege and an honor. It signifies that the player is recognized by the managers, coaches and SBGLL officials as having the skills and character to represent our league. Post-season tournaments are played against teams from other leagues. SGBLL wants to start a reputation for fielding strong, competitive teams - ones that conduct themselves in a manner that reflects positively on our league. This standard of conduct is expected of all PLAYERS, PARENTS, COACHES, MANAGERS AND LEAGUE OFFICIALS.

Selection Process:
Managers will meet once the season is over. Team selections will be forwarded to the Board for approval. The SBGLL Board strives to place all players who desire to play post season on a team, but can't guarantee space for everyone will be available. If the Board has concerns a player will not represent the league in a positive manner, the Board does have the option to remove the player from the roster and ask the Managers to select an alternate.

Teams Announced: Team announcements will be made on June 9th.

Cost to Families:
The post season registration fee covers the cost of visor, batting jersey (or other uniform needs) and field usage.

Parents are expected to get the players to ALL games that are within driving distances. If teams advance to tournaments that require overnight lodging and meals, parents need to plan for additional expenses. Families must make their own travel arrangements, at their own expense. The league provides uniforms and normal equipment required for the teams, anything beyond that is up to the team and the parents to provide.

The Majors All-Star team is the only team that can advance out of state. Once a team advances to this level, Little League will cover the transportation cost, lodging, and food while on the Little League campus for the players and coaching staff. Little League does not cover meals for players during travel days, incidentals or spending money, nor does it provide any reimbursement for other family member's expenses. These are expenses that the player's family must cover.

Practices and Time Commitment:
The degree of commitment required of all players and their parents during post-season play is higher than expected during the regular season. Practices will begin immediately after the team announcements, usually the second Sunday in June. Players are required to attend ALL practices. If a player misses or is disruptive at practice, she can be removed from the team and another player may be selected to fill the spot. Typically practices are in the evenings...Although not typical, practices may be in the morning, afternoon or evening. Sometimes there may be practices twice a day. Players can expect to have batting practice the morning of a game.

Playing Time for Post Season:
For All-Stars: For teams with 12 players, minimum playtime is one at-bat and six consecutive defensive outs. For teams of 13 players, the minimum playtime is one at bat. Teams may use this approach if there is strong hitters to advance a team to State.

Some players will only play the minimum even though they may have been a top player on their regular season team. Each player needs to be willing to accept her role on the team. Parents need to understand that this up to each manager to decide playing time, and is not open to discussion with the manager.

For Honors: Teams will bat the roster and each player will play a minimum of three defensive innings.

Important Documents:
Players making an All-Star team must provide the following documents by TBD:

PROOF OF AGE: We are required to prove each player's date of birth. The only acceptable form of proof is a government issued birth document certifying the participant's date of birth. It must be an original. A copy is not acceptable. Managers will present the original to the District Administrators at our Tournament Certification meeting and return the original as soon as possible after that meeting.

PROOF OF RESIDENCY: We are required to prove that each player lives within the South Beaverton Girls Little League boundaries. You will be asked to provide at least three documents that establish you live at a specific address. The documents of proof may include: parent(s) or guardian driver's license, voting registration card, school records, welfare record, federal, state and local records, homeowner or tenant property insurance or utility bills. Players must be prepared to supply three pieces of documentation and only one of each of those listed above (ie. Two utilities are not allowed). The date of these documents must be between the dates of February 1, of the previous year & January 31, of the current year. REREAD THIS SENTENCE. The other option is to have a letter signed by your school PRINCIPAL that notes your player attends that school (and it's a school within our boundary area). Your address will be reverified that you reside within our Little League boundaries.
