Spring Update - May 29, 2020

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.
 

Spring Rec Updates (as of 4/30/20)

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!

Spring TRAVEL Refunds Have Been Processed

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.

RBSA suspending ALL operations until further notice per COVID-19 concerns

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.

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update notice from Little League Baseball & Softball

Little League Baseball and Softball

Dear Little League Volunteers,

With the news of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to contact you all directly to inform you that we are taking this situation very seriously. We are monitoring the situation closely, and we are advising all our leagues to follow the guidelines set by the World Health OrganizationCenters for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), your state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including area school districts and government agencies.

We encourage all those that are actively participating in their Little League seasons – including players, volunteers, families, and fans – to follow the best practices as outlined by the CDC, which include washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (if soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer); avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; and avoid close contact with people who are sick. We would also encourage you all to limit close, physical contact with others (including shaking hands). Click here to learn more about the CDC recommendations.

Leagues should consult the appropriate county and/or local authorities regarding recommendations on how to proceed with large gatherings of people.

Also, if you or your child are ill; have a fever, cough, or respiratory condition; have a compromised immune system; are in any other group that may be at an increased risk of contracting a virus like the coronavirus; or have recently traveled to a country listed on the CDC’s Risk Assessment by Country, we encourage you or your child to refrain from Little League-related activities until cleared by your healthcare provider.

Local Little League programs are encouraged to exercise utmost precaution following the guidance of local, state and federal health agencies. In addition, cleaning and sanitizing hard surfaces and shared equipment that your league utilizes; tipping caps instead of shaking hands at the end of a game; making sure all players have their own water/drink bottles and are not sharing; and, if any volunteers are uncomfortable or cannot attend a league or district meeting, utilizing free phone/web conferencing service, are some alternative ways that leagues can help follow best practices while this health concern remains.

If your league or district is taking proactive, preventative measures in regards to the coronavirus in your area, and delaying or altering its schedule or season, we ask that you please notify Little League International by emailing SeasonUpdate@LittleLeague.org.

As the situation continues to develop, Little League International will do our best to continue to keep our leagues, volunteers, and families informed.

Sincerely,

Stephen D. Keener

Stephen D. Keener
Little League President and CEO

RBSA FAQ's

Find out the answers to the most frequently asked questions. Updated 1/22/20.

The RBSA requires that all players, parents and spectators must adhere to the NJ Athletic Code of Conduct.

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.
