Super 8s

Overview

The Super 8s is not an official Little League All Star team. Instead this team is intended to provide competitive post season tournament experience for players aged 8. This team competes in our MSLL Super 8s tournament which includes other District 5 teams as well as teams from other BC Little League districts. The team may also enter further tournaments during the summer.

Player Eligibility

Players on this team must be baseball age 8 or younger and have played Rookie Senior during the regular season.

Team Selection

Head and assistant coaches are invited to apply for the 8s head coach or assistant coach position in mid May. Once applications are received the MSLL executive committee votes to appoint the head coach. The head coach is responsible for selecting the assistant coaches subject to executive committee approval.

All interested players will be invited to sign up for the chance to be on this team. If the number of players exceeds 12-13, a player assessment will be held to determine who is on the team. This assessment will be facilitated by the Supers 8s head coach in conjunction with MSLL President.

The child of a head or assistant coach is not guaranteed placement on the team.

Post Season Fee

Players who are selected for the team are required to pay a $50 post season fee to participate (please contact the MSLL executive committee in case of hardship).

This fee covers the additional costs associated with the post season such as: caps, uniforms, tournament entry fees, baseballs and equipment.

There is no cost to attend the team assessment.

Playing Time

The Super 8s team does not guarantee equal playing time to players. The playing rules will be as specified by the individual tournament rules, but typically some players will play more than others. Post season teams are intended to be a competitive experience, and coaches may use their players in order to provide the best chance to win.

Line up decisions are fully at the discretion of the team head coach. All parents must sign the post season protocol and are expected to be supportive of the coaches.
