Dumfries District Little League: Welcome
As the season is progressing along, it is necessary to prepare for the upcoming All Star and Fun tournaments. All of our Minor and Major Baseball players age 8-12 yrs. old are eligible to participate in either the Little League All Star (if selected) or District 9 Fun Tournament. Players that are league age 13-16 may only be considered for All Stars.
Eligible players must have participated in at least 60% of their regular season team’s games. DTQ has 5 All-Star Teams for the following age groups:
8-10 yr. All-Stars – Any Major or Minor player league age 8, 9 or 10 is a possible candidate.
11 yr. All-Stars – Any Major or Minor player league age 11 is a possible candidate.
12 yr. All-Stars – Any Major player league age 12 is a possible candidate.
Junior League All-Stars – Any Junior or Senior League player league age 13 or 14 is a possible candidate.
Senior League All-Stars – Any Senior League player league age 15 or 16 is a possible candidate.
While it is a great honor to be a member of an All-Star team, there is also a substantial commitment of time, effort, & travel required in order to participate. The All-Star season ends whenever tournament competition ends. The goal is for teams to progress as far into tournament play as possible. For the 8-10 and 11 year old teams, tournament play could continue through the completion of the Virginia State Tournament in late-July. For the 12 year old, Junior and Senior League teams, tournament play could continue through mid-August when the World Series takes place (12 in Williamsport PA, Junior in Taylor MI, Senior in SC). The All-Star time commitment consists of several practices a week beginning around June 15th and then participation in the District 9 All-Star tournaments beginning about June 24th and running for about 10-12 days. Players are expected to attend ALL team practices. Per Little League rules the minimum play time for a team with 13 players is 1 at-bat, and no defensive outs. No minimum play rule for SR League.
There are two levels of play in the Fun Tournament. Leagues may have multiple teams at each age group.
Age 10 and under Fun Tournament
Age 12 and under Fun Tournament
The typical commitment for a Fun tournament player will be practices starting around June 15 and continuing with tournament games starting June 17 and running for about 7 days. These games will be played against teams from leagues outside of DTQ. Some travel will be involved.
PLEASE let your team manager know YES or NO by May 27, 2017 if your child will be participating. They will be compiling a list to summit to the league. You may also email your choice to the league. DTQLittleLeague@comcast.net
DTQ Little League will be hosting the 2017 Virginia State Little League tournament starting July 20. Sixteen teams from all over the state of Virginia will be coming to Fuller Heights Park in Triangle to participate. It will take a lot of work to put on a first class tournament for these teams. If you are interested in helping out, please email the league at DTQLittleLeague@comcast.net
