Select is a program that provides the option for more advanced players to play softball at a more challenging level DURING the recreational season (either Spring or Fall Seasons). Each year, USA SOFTBALL recreational leagues lose players and volunteers (coaches, coordinators, Board members, etc.) to travel ball due to a desire to play softball at a more competitive level. USA SOFTBALL Select is intended to allow advanced players to play against all star caliber teams from local leagues within the Los Angeles/South Bay District (and potentially other Western Region Districts as well) to get a higher level of competition while keeping costs low, and without compromising the integrity of the primary recreational league.
Select is not All-Stars and is entirely a separate program.
Select is usually only available for the 10U, 12U, and 14U divisions (8U starting in 2020 on a limited basis). Generally, only one Select team per division is permitted. Multiple teams per division are only permissible with USA Softball and TGSL Board approval.
