Each rec coach will give the All Star Player Invitation to Tryout Letter and tryout schedule to their nominated players
(in a discreet manner). This letter outlines the required commitment for All Stars. In addition, the All Star Coach
will have the option to invite additional players from their division that did not receive a nomination letter subjected to the approval of the Region 56 Board. The All Star Player Invitation to Tryout Lette
r and tryout schedule will be e-mailed to each coach after the player nomination deadline.
Tryouts will be held for all nominated players. Players who have not been nominated may not attend All Star Tryouts. The Region 56 Board and All Star Coaches will set tryout dates and times. There will be a minimum of 2 tryouts. Players are encouraged to attend all tryouts but are only required to attend one tryout to be considered for an All Star Team.
All Star Team Formation:
After tryouts for all divisions
, independent evaluators will turn in all player tryout data. The All Star Selection Committee will review all data and send proposed All Star Roster for Region 56 Regional Commissioner approval for each team. Then, All Star Coaches will contact nominated players.
All Star teams/players will be announced on our website at www.ayso56.org as soon as possible. All
of the teams must be selected and all nominated players must be contacted before announcement will occur.
Declining a Nomination:
Declining a team position does not prevent a player from being considered for future All Star seasons.
