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.
All-star Selection Process (Excludes 5-6 Year Instructional Division)
Players are evaluated throughout the season to be considered for post season All-star play. All coaches in the league along with the sports coordinator will meet and select All-star team participants. Once the teams are formed, the All-star team coaches will be selected by the sports coordinator. An All-star team is formed from the participants within the league they played during regular season. Players who play up in age-group during league play can only qualify for All-stars in that same age group. All players that are selected for the All-star team will be contacted by the All-star head coach. Teams will compete in District and State competition under the by-laws of GRPA.
