What is BGCRE All-Stars?
In the Summer, BGCRE Softball aims to field All-Star teams in several age divisions: 8U, 9/10, and 10/11/12.
All-Star Teams compete in Connecticut Little League District 1 and other area tournaments.
Two of our 8U teams have played for the Championship of the Trumbull 8U All-Star Tournament, and our 9/10 All-Stars have won four consecutive CT Little League District 1 Championships (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014), as well as the organization's first Fairfield County Fastpitch Softball League A Division Championship in 2013. In 2014, our 11/12 All-Stars won the organization's first Majors Division CT Little League District 1 Championship, as well as the 12U Fairfield County Fastpitch Softball League A Division title.
How can my daughter qualify and try out for a BGCRE Softball All-Star Team?
Qualifying for a BGCRE All-Star Team is relatively simple:
-- All girls who participate in the BGCRE Softball Spring Recreation League and play in 60% of regular season games are eligible to play for a BGCRE Softball All-Star Team.
-- There are no formal tryouts for a BGCRE All-Star Team, in accordance with Little League rules. Each player’s performance and effort during every game and practice of the Spring Recreational Season represent her tryout.
-- Players will be selected based on four criteria.
1) Commitment to TEAM;
2) Positive attitude, effort and sportsmanship;
3) Softball skills: hitting, running, throwing, fielding, pitching, catching;
4) Knowledge of the game.
-- Head coaches in each division nominate players for All-Star selection. The All-Star Team head coach, selected by the division coaches and subject to approval by the BGCRE Softball Committee, will determine the final roster.
