All-Stars is a chance for Little League players to compete in a state or national tournament that starts at the district level. Monarch Little League is part of Colorado District 2. Try outs will be done for All-Star teams near the end of the regular season. Teams are selected by the MLL Board of Directors and assigned 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 be formally selected prior to June 1st. Typically teams will be announced in the 1st week of June and start practices immediately after the regular season ends. The start of the district 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 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. For Majors, Intermediate 50/70, and Juniors if you win state you advance to the Southwest Regionals which are held 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 Monarch Little League regular season in at least 60% of their respective team's games. There is no cost to players to participate in All-Stars except for a uniform fee of $50. Each player will receive a jersey, pant, belt, socks, and a ball cap.
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 Monarch 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 listed are in terms of league age as of August 31, 2018.
- Juniors All-Star Team
- Players must be 12 to 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 to 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 to 12 years old and have played in Majors in 60% of their team's games
- Only a single team is allowed
- AAA All-Star Team
- Players must be 9 to 11 years old and have played in Minors or Majors in 60% of their team's games
- Minors All-Star Team
- Players must be 8 to 10 years old and have played in Minors or Majors in 60% of their team's games
Only one Juniors, Intermediate, and Major's team can be formed by MLL and entered into the District 2 tournament. One or more AAA (9 to 11) and Minors (8 to 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 just 1 at-bat in a game. With 12 or less players, the minimum playing time is 1 at-bat and 6 consecutive outs in a game.
The 9 to 11 year old All-Star team and the 8 to 10 year old All Star team are unique in that both 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 to 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 choose to register for only the Minors team or only the 9 to 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 for the 8 to 10 Minors, 9 to 11 Minors, and Majors District 2 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.
All-Star team tryout registration information will be sent out in early may and evaluations will occur in mid-May. Registration will determine the pool of available players for each team. Teams will be announced through the registration program. Players are typically not informed until the 1st 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.

The number of teams in each division tournament will vary from year to year. Typically the most teams are in the Minors (8 to 10) and Minors (9 to 11) tournament as each of the 9 leagues in District 2 can have two team entries. The next most popular tournament is the Majors (10 to 12) tournament where typically 6 or more teams from the district enter.
Games can be any day of the week, though typically occur Monday - Saturday, starting at 5 PM or later on weeknights. Each division tournament will be hosted by a league and all games will be played on fields within that league. It's also possible to play every day of the week. It's typical to play only a single game on a given day though.
