RCBA Board and RCBA Fees:
RCBA offers Recreation Baseball ages 3 thru 14 and is ran by volunteer board members. We rely on support from the parents and coaches for help during the seasons.
100% of all funds collected at sign-ups and tournament gate fee go directly to the maintenance of fields, insurance, umpire fees, and other incurred costs which allow our children to play baseball.
RCBA is always looking for support if you are available and willing to put the time in to help the league and kids. Thanks
