All-Stars is a chance for Little League players to compete in a national tournament that starts at the district level. Coal Creek Little League is part of Colorado District 2. Try outs will be done for All-Star teams at the end of or just after the regular season ends. Teams are selected by coaches after tryouts are complete. Teams will be formed to be as competitive as possible based on the eligible and available pool of players. Teams may not selected prior to June 1st. Typically teams will be announced in the 2nd week of June and start practice around or just before mid-June. The start of the tournament is typically just after July 4th. Refer to the bottom of the page for more specific calendar dates for the current year.
If your player makes an All Star team they will be practicing most week days and Saturdays starting after teams are formed until the games start in early July. The District All Star tournament is a double elimination tournament. If you win District then you advance to the State tournament (location to be determined). For Majors, Intermediate and Juniors if you win state you advance to regionals in Texas. If you win regionals you advance to the Little League World Series in August which is broadcast on ESPN!
To be eligible for All-Stars, a player must have played in the Coal Creek Little League regular season in at least 60% of their teams games. There is no cost to players to participate in All-Stars except for a uniform/practice cost fee of $50. Each player will receive a hat and a commemorative t-shirt to wear under their uniform that they can keep. A deposit is required for jerseys, belts, and pants that need to be returned. There are scholarships available, so if you are interested and fincially constrained please contact us to discuss options.
Little League has a wealth of information available on the All-Star tournament on their Tournament Resources page.

Teams and Eligibility
The following teams may be formed by Coal Creek Little League, depending on player and coach eligibility, availability, and talent. Eligibility requirements vary slightly for each team, though all players will need to provide proof of residency and birth certificates to the district for verification. All ages before are in terms of league age.
** Due to a rule change in 2016, additional age groups are now eligible for all stars (e.g. League age 8 kids in Minors division). The latest rules are reflected below.
*** Due to a rule change in 2018, players in Intermediates that are 11 and 12 years old will be eligible for Majors All-Star Team
- Juniors All-Star Team
- Players must be 12 - 14 years old and have played in Juniors in 60% of their team's games
- Only a single team is allowed
- Intermediate All-Star Team
- Players must be 11 - 13 years old have played in Intermediate in 60% of their team's games
- Only a single team is allowed
- Majors All-Star Team
- Players must be 10-12 years old and have played in Majors or Intermediates in 60% of their team's games
- Only a single team is allowed
- 9-11 All-Star Team
- Players must be 9 - 11 years old have played in Minors or Majors in 60% of their team's games
- Minors (8-10) All-Star Team
- Players must be 8 - 10 years old and have played in Minors or Majors in 60% of their team's games
- Players that are 8 in Rookies are now eligible
Only one Juniors, Intermediate, and Major's team can be formed by CCLL and entered into the District2 tournament. One or more 9-11 and Minors(8-10) teams can be formed by the league. If a team cannot be formed with sufficient talent to compete in the tournament from the eligible and available pool of players, a team will not be formed.
Team size is typically targeted at 12 players, but teams of 11 to 14 may be formed. A team of 11 requires a district waiver. Little League allows up to 14 players on a team though playing time is difficult to manage at that number. The minimum playing time changes at 13 players to 1 at-bat. With 12 or less players, the minimum playing time is 1 at-bat and 6 consecutive outs.
The 9-11 All-Star team is unique in that it can be formed from players from either Minors or Majors divisions. Parents of eligible players in this age group will be allowed to register for both options if they so chose. Specifically, consider the following options:
- An 11 year old may elect to try out for only the Majors team or only the 9-11 team by registering for the preferred program, or to be considered for both teams by registering for both programs.
- A 10 year old can likewise chose to register for only the Minors team or only the 9-11 team by registering for the preferred program, or to be considered for both teams by registering for both programs.
- Note that the pool of teams are large in both Minors(8-10) and Majors D2 tournaments so typically the priority is try to field these teams first, though the priority varies year to year based on coach, player, and parent interests.
- In the case a player is registered for both teams and the league has enough players and coaches to form both teams, a player selection order will be determined after the draft. One such method would be to alternate selections between players interested and eligible for both teams. CCLL reserves the right to determine this player selection process to maximize competitiveness or participation on a year to year basis.
All-Star team tryout registration will start in mid-May. Registration will determine the pool of available players for each team. To register for an All-Star team go to Registration. Teams will be announced through the registration program. Players are typically not informed until the 2nd week of June.
If selected, parents will be required to provide 3 forms of proof of residency. This paperwork must be provided in triplicate and be within the specified date range. Refer to residency requirements for information on valid forms of proof of residency. This paperwork, in addition to a copy of a birth certificate, must be provided in the first week of all-star practice.
