Game Participation Rule
It is mandatory for all participants to play in all games. Each player must play six consecutive defensive outs and have at least one at bat.
Uniforms are not included in the registration fee. Parents are responsible for purchasing the child's uniform to include shirt, pants, cleats and hat. The Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation Authority has developed a uniform standard to ease the burden of selection and provide greater continuity to the program. The RFPRA name/logo, player name and/or team sponsor name is allowed on the back of the jersey. Each coach will receive this information to share with parents. Coaches and parents will determine uniform color and team name at the first team meeting.
All coaches are certified through NAYS and a participation rule is in place for all girls.
Spring League players sign up individually and play for the school district they attend.
Fall League players sign up individually or as teams and do not have to play for the school district they attend.
