Summer All Star Teams

2020 HCYP All-Star Program

Note: While the COVID-19 pandemic has now led to the cancellation of the 2020 Spring season, we are still striving to form one or more summer all star teams, and are still planning on holding our summer Invitational Tournament if we are able to do so. It is still too early to formalize any details on tryouts, etc.

Each spring, HCYP holds tryouts for 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U All-Star teams. HCYP All-Star teams consist of the best HCYP recreational baseball players in each age group.

These teams compete in tournaments throughout the summer and each coach is responsible for signing up for which tournaments they would like to join. ALL teams must compete in the HCYP Invitational Tournament held July 24-26, 2020. Most age groups will compete in at least one or more other tournaments during the summer. Availability to be at each tournament WILL be a consideration for making the team. We cannot sign up for a tournament only to realize that teams will be missing players due to other commitments. Coaches will be able to provide more information on which other tournaments they are considering at the time you are offered a spot on the team.

To be considered for a team, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U MUST attend a tryout session. You will be expected to be there for the entire tryout time. Unlike evaluations for the regular season, All-Star tryouts are held as a group moving from station to station, not as individuals moving from station to station.

During the tryout, we are looking for the BEST players in each age group across pitching, hitting, fielding, and other specific baseball skills. We will first take the top 12 kids who have tried out and form the BLUE team. Should each age group commissioner determine the next best 12 kids who tried out would be competitive in area tournaments, they may choose to create a WHITE team.


Tournament player age eligibility differs slightly from our in-house spring season eligibility. Some players will come from a "league up" due to the May vs. August cut off. All-Star teams use an age cutoff date of 4/30/2019 (compared to HCYP’s cutoff date of 8/31). The following is a breakdown of eligible ages for each group:

  • 8U – born on or after 5/1/2011
  • 10U – born on or after 5/1/2009
  • 12U – born on or after 5/1/2007
  • 14U – born on or after 5/1/2005
