Spring Season Update from the desk of Ray Riker

To All FCAA Families 

 

I wanted to provide an update regarding the 2020 Spring Season as we all work through the Covid-19 Pandemic.

 

We continue to monitor current events and regulations for our community as we have had our Spring Baseball / Softball Season paused. We have maintained open communication with The City of Jacksonville Parks and Recreation Department and Babe Ruth National and State Headquarters. Through all ongoing conversations, we continue to hear that we should maintain the current pause on our Spring Recreational Season. I believe it is safe to say at this point that no new decision regarding the resumption of our Spring Season will happen until near the end of April. We all are hopeful that we will be able to resume our Spring Season very soon and we plan to make every reasonable attempt to get the entire regular season games completed. 

 

At this point, we would ask that you remain patient as we wait for some positive news.

 

We will continue to provide updates when new information becomes available.

 

Thank you for your understanding as we all try to navigate this very unprecedented time.

 

Thank You and Please Stay Safe.

Alec and Brett were attendees of Sandalwood High School and both attended Gulf Coast State College for two years.

The City of Jacksonville and FCAA requires all Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Team Parent(s) to have a COJ Volunteer Badge each year. If you plan on coaching, being assistant coach and/or anticipate helping on the field during practice, in the dugout or on the field during the season you must be listed on a team's roster to receive a 2019 COJ Badge. Contact the COJ Parks and Recreation Department to schedule an appointment to apply for a badge. Badges will be picked up by the a FCAA representative and handed out. Once you receive your badge it must be worn at all times when interacting with players. 

If you have a badge from 2018 you will need to fill out a Continuation Form and return to the Athletic Director at least 3 weeks before the season begins. Click the link below to download the Continuation Form.

If you don't have a badge you need to send your name and team name to the Head Coach, as soon as possible. The info will be turned into the League Director. Your request for a badge will only be considered if it comes from a League Director. Your name will be placed on a list with the COJ which will allow you to make an appointment to receive a badge. If your name is not on the list you will not be allowed, by the COJ, to receive a badge.
