This basketball season, we're looking for players and coaches who show great sportsmanship. We are recognizing those who show proper consideration for fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship with one's competitors.
When we see your good sportsmanship, we'll reward you on the spot with a free Coke & Popcorn certificate to enjoy at the game!
Help us Encourage Great Sportsmanship!

Game Participation Rule
It is mandatory for all participants to play in all games. Each child must play 1 full uninterrupted quarter of each game.
Uniforms are not included in the registration fee. Parents are responsible for purchasing the child's uniform to include shirt, shorts, and court shoes. The Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation Authority has developed a uniform standard to ease the burden of selection and provide greater continuity to the program. The RFPRA name/logo, player name and/or team sponsor name is allowed on the back of the jersey. Each coach will receive this information to share with parents. Coaches and parents will determine uniform color and team name at the first team meeting.
Each player in the 5-6 year-old age division will receive an award. All other age divisions will receive first and second place individual player awards following post season tournament.
