Governor Murphy just announced that non-contact youth sports can return beginning June 22, 2020, with proper safeguards in place. This appears to be good news. We are going to need a few days to review the order, so please stayed tuned. We will have another update early next week.
Sadly, Little League Baseball and Softball has cancelled the 2020 World Series and Regional Tournaments.
It is however, still the RBSA's intention to hold some type of Rec season, even if play is pushed into the summer months. We also intend to participate in summer travel leagues/tournaments, if they are available. Of course this will fully depend upon when/if the "all clear" is given by State and Local officials. The safety of your children, and your family, is what matters most to us. We will continue to keep you closely posted, and expect more information as we get closer to May 15th.
Since we cannot at this time provide details as to start and completion dates of the 2020 season, we will not at this time draft teams for any leagues. Refunds will be issued to all, if it is determined that our season will be cancelled, or should you now decide/wish to no longer participate.
Please contact us if we can answer any questions. Thank you for your continuing patience and support-stay safe & well!
Please be advised that as of April 19, 2020, all refunds for Spring Travel baseball have been processed. Please allow a few days for the refunds to hit your credit card account. If you do not see the credit by April 23, please contact Matt Miller at MGMiller17@verizon.net.
At this point, the RBSA has not yet made a final decision regarding the Spring Recreation season and we will keep you closely apprised.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, current national state of emergency and out of an abundance of caution, the RBSA is temporarily suspending all league operations. This includes all related gatherings such as drafts/practices/clinics and is effective immediately (3/13/20).
The Ramsey BOE is closing all their facilities (indoor and outdoor), and all Borough fields are closed and will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Please stay off the fields until further notice.
In the interim, we will directly follow the lead(s) of both the Ramsey Borough and the BOE. Our hope is to return to normal operations as soon as possible, and start immediately planning for the 2020 spring season once we are given the green light to do so.
The safety and well-being of our players and selfless volunteers is and will always remain our top priority. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation during these trying times and we will keep the entire RBSA family/community closely updated.
Registration is still open for the 2020 Spring season. Register now before roster slots are filled.

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.
