Manager and Team Selection

Please see Section V of GVGSA rules at Rules and Bylaws | Goleta Valley Girls Softball

 

Team Selection and Player Position/Playtime

An Allstar player is selected through an application process and tryouts. The teams are selected based on creating the best team GVGSA has to offer for each level of team (first gold, then sliver, then bronze), per age division (6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U). Note that silver and bronze teams are formed if there are enough girls available and a manager available to coach the team. Each team selects a minimum of 11 players and a max of 15 players.

Once teams are selected, it becomes the managers responsibility to place players into positions that best benefit the team. For example, a player played second base throughout regular season, now becomes the center fielder for the Allstar team. Outfielders are extremely important during all-star play and so managers often utilize some of their most talented players in those positions.

Managers will be encouraged to give all girls a chance to play, either as a starter or sub. However, it is at the manager’s sole discretion to determine each player's actual amount of playing time. Open communication between a manager and his/her players is encouraged. There is no guaranteed playtime.
