ONE TEAM ONE DREAM

ALL STARS

At the end of each Spring season, Brea participates in All-Stars.  All-Stars is optional and a very competitive environment.  To be considered for the Brea Girls Softball All-Star Teams, a player must have participated in 75% of their Spring teams games and not participated with any softball team outside of Brea Girls Softball after a designated cut-off date.  Not all who are considered for All-Stars will be selected and selections are made by the manager and board. The league will decide at the end of April whether to form a a team or teams in each division.

The season starts in early-May and runs through late June with a possible continuation of play through July and/or August, depending on possible qualifications for States, Regionals and/or Nationals.

Dear All-Star Player Candidates and Parents,

Thank you for your interest in the Brea Girls Softball League All-Star program. The Recreational Season is about individual instruction, learning the rules of the game, opportunities for every girl to play multiple positions, and having fun. The All-Star season is about team competition, developing advanced skills, instilling a winning attitude, and having fun. Since there is a significant difference between the Recreation and All-Star experience, it is important to establish expectations for the All-Star season.

Players shall abide by the following rules:
 

  • Attend all practices and games on time.
  • Accept whatever role/position/contribution the Manager designates for you.
  • Be willing to play positions that are unfamiliar to you.
  • Demonstrate a positive attitude and support your teammates.
  • The team is more important than the player.

Parents shall abide by the following rules:
 

  • Support the coaches and players.
  • Consider the team’s success as a success for your daughter and a rewarding experience.
  • Do not approach coaches during warm-ups, games, or practices to discuss playing time, positions, batting order, etc. Concerns must be addressed off the field at a mutually agreed time. Failure to adhere may result in suspension.
  • Parents and players may be asked to participate in fundraising efforts.
  • The All-Star season is a demanding schedule. You should expect to practice multiple times per week and play in 7-9 weekend tournaments (Friday - Sunday). The likelihood for most tournaments is multiple games on Saturdays and Sundays.



Our All-Star selection process is outlined in our Rules and Regulations.

If your daughter is selected to a team, here are a few things to remember:

Financial Commitment

  • The base financial commitment is typically $400 - $500 per player.
  • This cost covers a high-quality uniforms, all tournament fees, bat bag, helmet  and USA Softball participant player card. 100% of this money is spent on All-Star purchases (there is no residual profit to the league).
  • There may be additional travel cost in the event you chose to stay in a hotel.
  • Teams that advance to the state and/or national tournaments will incur additional fees and travel expenses.

Time Commitment
 

  • Tournament dates are listed in the All-Star Application form. Teams that advance to state and/or national tournaments are expected to play until mid-July.
  • Tournaments generally start on Fridays and end on Sundays; however you should be available to play on Thursdays and Mondays (including holidays).
  • Team managers will determine the practice days. Most teams will conduct 5 two-hour practices per week, plus additional time for pitchers. All-Star practices will commence on approximately May 8, 2023.

Team Commitment
 

  • Playing time, positioning, and batting order are NOT guaranteed and may not be equal. There is a possibility that some players may not play in an entire game, as this is a competitive All-Star environment.

Finally, Brea Girls Softball would like to remind our parents and players that participation in the All-Star program is a privilege that requires a new level of commitment. All players are exposed to a high level of competition, and this is a great opportunity for your daughter.
