If any of the Board members cannot or choose not to serve on the All-Star Selection Committee the President may appoint an alternate Board member to serve.

All-Star Managers are subject to approval by a two-thirds (⅔) vote of the Board. To be considered for selection as an All-Star Manager the individual must have managed or coached a Spring season team. Additional criteria include but are not limited to: team performance; conduct with players and parents during practices and games; managers/coaches who best represent the league, children and city; experience and knowledge of the game and Little League All-Star play. Managers are not solely determined by the outcome of each division's playoff tournament.

All-Star Managers can be selected prior to the selection of the All-Star rosters or after the fact so that SMLL is set up for success during tournament play.

This process of Manager and Player selection shall always be made available on the SMLL website for all to see.
