The mission of the GRBSA is to implant firmly in the children of the community the ideals of good sportsmanship, loyalty, honesty, courage and respect so that they may be finer, stronger and happier children and will grow up to be good, honorable, healthy adults.
The GRBSA intends to achieve its mission by providing supervised competitive athletic games. The development of the children is primary and the attainment of exceptional athletic skill or the winning of games is of secondary importance.
The baseball & softball recreation program is open to the children of Glen Rock and the Academy of Our Lady in kindergarten through eighth grade. A Pre-K kickball program is available to children age 4 and 5 years old. The program is divided into leagues based on a child’s school grade during the season. All divisions are governed by the VP’s of rec baseball & softball.
The responsibilities of the vice presidents vary depending on division but basically entails assigning coaches and distributing practice and game schedules and rules to coaches. VP’s of rec baseball & softball, also distribute uniforms and equipment to the coaches and communicate important dates throughout the season. In divisions for older children, the VP’s, coordinate a draft process to select teams, compile season standings and coordinate post-season tournaments. In divisions for younger players, they assemble the teams from the registered players. VP’s also work with coaches to reschedule make-up games when necessary.
