Norris Beavers LL All-Stars Invitational Tournament

LL BB age 9-11 year old Tournament

Final: July 15th – July 29th, 2017


For the first time, the ULLL would like to formally announce the Norris Beavers All-Stars Invitational Tournament. 

The Norris Beavers Little League All-Stars Invitational Tournament is designed to provide an opportunity for players on invited teams to play additional All-Star baseball games beyond those that are a part of the Little League International tournament. Specifically, this tournament will enable players who invested weeks of practice and effort in preparation for the District tournament to have opportunity to play additional games, regardless of their performance in the District tournament.

Since this was the first time the ULLL has established the tournament, the ULLL invited all of the teams participating in this year’s VA District 16 9-11 yr old All-Stars tournament (hosted by the ULLL) to participate. In subsequent years, it is the ULLL's hope to expand the tournament to include other age groups and additional teams. That said, if your team would be provisionally interested in participating in this tournament in future years, please email the Kerry (ULLL President, ) and Mario (ULLL Vice President,  ).  The rules for this year can be found at the following link.


This year's tournament features three teams from the 9-11 yr old division: Central Loudoun, Loudoun South, and Upper Loudoun:

Tournament Format

The tournament will include two parts — pool play and a championship game. The pool play portion of this year's tournament consists of one pool. Teams will play four games within their respective pools. After completion of pool play, the teams final seeding will be based on a point system and seeding criteria (see below). Then, there will be a championship game for the top two seeded teams (following pool play) to end the tournament.


Point System

During pool play, points shall be awarded after each game based on the following: Win = 2 pts, Tie = 1 pt, Loss = 0 pts


Seeding Criteria

To determine seeding after pool play, the following criteria will be used:

  1.  Highest point total in Pool Play
  2.  Most wins in Pool Play
  3.  Head to Head Record (only when tie is between two teams)
  4.  Fewest Total Runs Allowed in Pool Play
  5.  Highest Total Run Differential (Total Runs Scored less Total Runs Allowed) in Pool Play
  6.  Random Draw (flip of a coin by Tournament Director)

Note: If more than two teams are tied for determining a seed, once a single team has been determined with the criteria above, the procedure will start over with Criteria 1 for the remaining tied teams.


Tournament Schedule

Games are planned for two of three nights each week (Monday, Thursday and Saturday, Rain Dates on Tuesday and Friday).  Pool play games will be completed on 15 July and during the weeks of July 17 and July 24.  Championship game scheduled for July 29.
