All softball players, grades 3-8 are invited to attend a special batting practice session with Coach Caserta and the Ramsey High School Softball Team!
Wednesday, January 24 from 7:45-9:00pm
Ramsey High School
Please bring your own bat and helmet.
Please RSVP via the following link so we can get a firm head count and we really hope to see you there!
We hope everyone is staying warm on these cold January days. It's hard to imagine playing baseball in just a few short months. Please note that only 2 weeks remain before registration prices go up again, so get your registrations in before (2/1) to avoid an additional $30.
We also wanted to make sure all baseball parents were aware of the new bat standards this year. Most of the major Youth baseball leagues in the US including Little League and Babe Ruth have adopted a unified Bat standard called the USA Bat Standard. The RBSA is following that standard for our leagues from Tiny Tim 8 through Babe Ruth. All bats that do not have the USA BAT Logo will not be allowed this year. The only bats that contain this new logo are 2018 model year bats, so if you have a bat from last year, it is no longer eligible. We have posted information about the new bat standard on our website.
Again, only new 2018 bats with the USA Bat logo are legal this year in TT8 through Babe Ruth. Teeball and Clinic can use bats from previous years. Rules on Softball bats have not changed from past years. Please contact me (Shawn Kirk @ firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions regarding this new bat standard and how it applies to your child.

Great news for softball!
Ramsey High School is offering a spring break softball camp for girls in grades 3-8! Coach Chris Caserta and his staff led the RHS Girls Softball team to the state finals last year.

If you are not planning to be away for break, this is a great opportunity for the girls to get to know the high school players/coaches and kick off their 2018 season!
Camp runs Monday, April 2nd through Thursday, April 5th (from 9:00am-12:00pm) over spring break and cost is $120 (max $200 for siblings). They will play on the Tisdale fields, but they have turf and indoor space available as a contingency for the weather!

Interscholastic and youth sports programs play an important role in promoting the physical, social and emotional development of children. It is therefore essential for parents, coaches and officials to encourage youth athletes to embrace the values of good sportsmanship. Moreover, adults involved in youth sports events should be models of good sportsmanship and should always lead by example by demonstrating fairness, respect and self-control.
