Welcome Letter

  1. Dear RCJOUSA Softball Coaches & Families:

    Somewhere behind the athlete, behind the hours of practice, behind the coaches who have pushed  you as a child to fall in love with the game and never looked back. Coach, thank you for going above and beyond to coach your team and for bringing out the best in your players. We truly appreciate your support and guidance. Last but certainly not least, we want to extend a big thank you to all parents of our league.  We appreciate the fact that you support your young athlete in the sport they love.  Your hours spent watching practices and games,  your traveling to and from tournaments and dedication to your are what makes RCJOUSA a great league.

    I applaud our 2020-2021 Board members for the time they have given so freely and the sacrifices each of them has made to help make RCJOUSA softball complex one of the best. With that said, I’d like to introduce our Board Members: Chad Mehrer, Danielle Colicheski, Michael Deming, William Cannon, Tim Markovetz, Brad Burns, Nate Larson, Sonja Love, Stacie Collins and Scott Sebbo. A special thank you to our Registrar, Sarah Brooks.  As such, one of our goals is to always improve on communication (board meetings and minutes are posted on the league’s webpage), and with that in mind, hopefully this welcome letter will address some of the questions we have received.
  1.  We will have a Concession Stand Manager again who will coordinate with teams to staff the concession stand        Teams will be assigned duties 1 night during the summer. Multiple teams will be assigned each week. Each team will need a concession stand coordinator and 6 to 8 people minimum are needed to work the concession stand. Teams will be required to have 3 to 4 people show up 15- 20 minutes before the first game of the night to help with set-up.
  2.  Properly maintaining our fields is essential. To help with this, we will need one parent from each team to attend a field prep tutorial on field clean-up day.Field prep after every game (even the last game of the night) will be the rule and not the exception.
  3.  A new warm-up area is in the works and we are planning to have it ready at the beginning of the season (weather pending). This will be located between  the outfield of field 2 and field 5.
  4.  We are also working on getting shade covers for several of the bleachers. More information to come on that.
  5.  Players from the RCJOUSA family that have lost their lives, will be honored with a memorial. This will be displayed at the entrance of our park. Please stop and check it out.

See you at the Diamond,
Stephen Vernon
RCJOUSA Softball President
