At the end of the traditional Little League season each Little League will setup their All-Star or Tournament Teams. These teams will begin play usually within the local district and working through the sectional, state, and regional levels, to hopefully earn a trip to the Little League World Series.
If there is enough interest in the All-Star program, then the league will hold a tryout to determine and select the members for each team. If your child is selected there is additional documentation that is required so that your child is eligible to participate within the tournament.
Elgin National usually sends a team in each of these divisions
Note that these divisions’ age composition may be slightly different than our regular season teams. To compete, a player must be the appropriate league age for that division, regardless of what division they played in during a season. This is why players who play “up” or “down” during the regular season may not be eligible for the All Star team even if they had a waiver to compete at the higher or lower level.
Teams must have a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 14 players. Players may be selected for the tournament team by one of two methods. Each division VP will choose the method for that division.
1. Manager recommendation. The managers of each regular season team will meet with the VP and nominate (an approximately equal number of) players from their teams for consideration. The manager of the tournament team, in consultation with the league VP and Player Agent, will have the final say on team composition.
2. Try-out. Players interested in being on the team will attend a try out. The manager of the tournament team, in consultation with the league VP and Player Agent, will have the final say on team composition.
Consult the district 13 website (District 13) and Little League Online for information on dates/locations of tournaments. Players who will not be available in July and August should inform the manager as soon as possible.
All documentation for All Star teams must be supplied to the Player Agent before the verification meeting.
Because this is a Little League International Competition there is a rigorous verification process to ensure that players are eligible to compete. To qualify for the league All Star team players MUST
Note: If your child participated in All-Stars in 2013-2018 and you have the signed Tournament Player Verification form from last year with the copied documentation attached, that is all you will need to present UNLESS YOU HAVE MOVED OUT OF OUR BOUNDARY.
Proof of Residency: Please read this carefully. Verifications are most often rejected because the parent does not provide appropriate proof of address.
1. The easiest way to prove residency is to take the School Enrollment Form to your school and have it signed by a school official.
To use this method the school must be in our boundaries. St. Mary's is in our boundary. St. Edward is not. It is best to do this BEFORE school ends for the year.
2. Players must provide three (3) documents that prove that the address of the player is within the boundaries of ENLL (or the combined area for combined teams).

1. Driver’s License (photo ID of parent(s) or guardian(s) with qualifying residence address)
