Baseball County Champions

Welcome to the 2024 Rockaway Valley School baseball program. Below is a list of program rules that will be followed by coach, student athlete, and parent. These rules are not to make this a negative experience, but rather a positive learning environment for all.

1. FORMS - All forms (the athletic team contract, emergency card, concussion forms) must be turned in to your coach before you can play. In addition, a current sports physical must be on file in the nurse's office.

2. COMMITMENT - Since practice is the only way one can improve skills and play, you need to make the commitment to practice and play baseball every weekday. Be present at the practice; no cell phones are permitted at any time during practices or games.

3. BASEBALL SEASON - The season will begin at the end of March and end around the end of May. We either practice or play games almost every weekday.

4. PRACTICE TIME - Practices take place at RVA Fields. Practice will be immediately after school 2:30-4:30. If there is a sudden change to the schedule, parents will be notified via the Instant Alert System (just like the messages you receive when school is cancelled for snow). All boys are expected to wear appropriate practice attire.

5. ABSENCES - A player who is ill or injured must notify the coach by email, phone, or parental note stating reason for excuse.

6. PRACTICE/GAME POLICY - If you miss a practice/game for an unexcused reason, you WILL NOT start the next game. It is the coach's discretion when/if you will get in the game. Upon the second unexcused absence, a warning will be issued along with not starting the next game. A third offense may result in suspension from a game(s). A fourth offense may result in suspension or removal from the team.

7. PLAYING TIME - Playing time is not given by the coach - it is earned by the player. Playing time is based on ATTITUDE, PERFORMANCE, and TEAMWORK!!! Players are always encouraged to speak to the coach if there are questions/concerns with playing time. Parents are welcome to have a conversation but please note this conversation itself will not change playing time in any way.

8. PICK UP FROM AN AWAY GAME - All students are able to ride the bus to and from an away game. If for some reason you must take your child from an away game, go to the school website, and under RVS Activities, click on RVS Sports Home and download the transportation form to hand to the coach.

9. PAY TO PARTICIPATE - Students who make the baseball team will be required to pay a fee to participate of $75. Checks should be made out to the Boonton Township Board of Education.
