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 or logo is required on the jersey. 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.
Each player in T-ball will receive an award. All other age divisions will receive first and second place individual player awards following the post season tournament.
All-star Selection Process
Players are evaluated throughout the season to be considered for post season All-star play. All coaches in the league along with the sports coordinator will meet and select All-star team participants. Once the teams are formed, the All-star team coaches will contact selected all-star players. T-ball & the 5-6 age divisions do not participate in all-stars.
