 Registration opens each April for those parents and players interested in participating in Little League All-Star post-season tournaments. Players must be Little League age 8+ and have played in at least 8 regular season games on a Minors/Majors team to be eligible for All-Stars. 

The 12U All-Stars are selected by a vote from the players' peers and coaches in early May, with some additional roster spots chosen by the All-Star coaches. The 11U and 10U teams' rosters are selected by MRLL's All-Star coaches each year.  All team rosters are announced on this website by May 15.  Practice for the 11U and 10U teams typically begins June 1.  The 12U team begins practicing a week after that.

The District 6 10U and 11U tournaments will be hosted by Arcadia Little League at Ingleside Middle School. The tournaments are expected to begin on or around June 15, 2022 and last no longer than one week.  The 12U tournament will be hosted by Mountain View Little League at Scottsdale Ranch Park and will begin at the conclusion of the 10U and 11U tournaments.

Participation on these teams requires a significant time commitment by the players and families involved in June practices, games, and other team events.  If the All-Star team is successful at the District 6 tournament in June, players will be expected to be available for practices and the state tournament for their respective age division held in July.  Arizona State Little League has yet to announce the locations and start dates for the 2022 Little League State Tournaments, but we do know which districts will be hosting:

10U | Hosted by District 7 | Mesa, AZ | Estimated Start Date: Mid-July
11U | Hosted by District 3 | Scottsdale/Paradise Valley, AZ | Estimated Start Date: Mid-July
12U | Hosted by District 10 | Prescott/Wickenburg, AZ | Estimated Start Date: Mid-July

Typically, all state tournaments are of the double elimination format, but sometimes may involve "pool play" depending upon the number of teams entered.

Only the 12U level state winners can advance further, as the 10U and 11U teams culminate at the state tournament level.


The winners of the state 12U division advance to represent Arizona in the West Regional held each year in San Bernadino, CA (dates TBD).  The culmination of the International Tournament is the Little League Baseball World Series, featuring teams from around the world held in Williamsport, PA (and televised on ESPN).  This year's tournament will be held August 17-28, 2022.

Any Minors or Majors manager (head coach) or assistant that coached in the 2022 spring season is eligible to coach an All-Star team this summer. If you're interested, please email Jackie Witzke at [email protected] as soon as possible.

Originally, the Scottsdale area little leagues were in Arizona's District 7 and won 12 district championships between 1961 and 1987 in the Little League Baseball Division (also known as the Major Division). In 1987, District 6 was spun-off from District 7. McCormick Ranch Little League has won 8 District 6 championships in the Major Division, second only to North Scottsdale Little League's 11 championships since 1987. McCormick Ranch won the right to represent the state of Arizona at Little League's Western Regional after winning the Major Division's state championship in 1998.  North Scottsdale is the only other Scottsdale area league to have won a state title in Majors (having done so in 1994, 1999, and 2010).
