GVAA Return to Play Plan

GVAA coaches, players, and spectators should follow the guidelines provided by the NJDOH.  The GVAA Return to Play Plan calls out some aspects of the NJDOH Guidelines but does not supersede or replace the guidelines provided by the NJDOH. GVAA reserves the right to update the Return to Play Plan at any time to continue to provide a safe environment.  A parent/guardian of each player will need to sign an acknowledgement of receipt for the NJDOH guidelines and the GVAA Return to Play Plan.

  • Signs will be posted at each field at the Rabinowitz Complex as a reminder of the social distancing, face covering, and good hygiene protocols.  
  • Coaching staff and parents/guardians should wear cloth face coverings. Athletes are also encouraged to wear cloth or disposable face coverings when not engaging in vigorous activity, such as when sitting on the bench, when interacting with an athletic trainer, etc
  • Each field at the Rabinowitz complex will be supplied with two safety kits including hand sanitizer and disinfecting spray to be used by the players and coaches.  Also included will be copy of the guidelines and reference materials.
  • Shared equipment will be sanitized before switching between players.  
  • Baseballs will be sanitized frequently during games and practices.
  • Dugouts may be used depending on size of dugout. (Ex. 18ft dugout will allow 3 players while they maintain social distancing)
  • Seeds and gum are prohibited within the complex.
  • While players are not on the field of play, they will line up in a safe location, designated by the coach, while practicing social distancing where possible or preferably stay with their parent/guardian. Please bring a chair for your player if possible.
  • Scheduling will be staggered to minimize crowds 
  • Bathrooms will remain closed.  Portable bathrooms are available and will be cleaned twice a week.
  • The concession stand will remain closed.
  • All players and coaches will be required to have a temperature check and verbal questionnaire before each practice and game.
    • Any player or coach with a temp of 100.4F will be asked to leave the complex immediately.
    • Check-in will be conducted at your respective playing field by a coach or parent.
  • NJ mandates to self-quarantine after traveling to a state deemed a COVID-19 “hot zone” and specified in the following link.            
  • Sick coaches, players, and families are encouraged to stay home.  To safely determine when to participate and when to stay home follow the guidelines in section 1.a.vii in the above referenced NJDOH guidelines.  

Our summer program will consist of 2 weeks of practice followed by 4 weeks of games.  Your coach will be communicating the specific details around your team’s schedule. If you would like to transfer your registration to the spring 2021 season contact John Conners at jconners@janney.com or 856-261-8738.

Thank you for your patience, cooperation, and support.  We hope together we can respect each other and have a safe and fun summer program.

Remembering Ken Mair


Coach, Mentor & Friend, Ken Mair

The GVAA Baseball community is mourning the loss of one of its most dedicated volunteers in league history.

Long-time coach and league umpire coordinator Ken Mair passed away this week after a battle with cancer. Ken was just 60 years old.

He spent over 20-plus years helping to run our league, coach our kids, train young umpires and share his passion for baseball. His name remains etched above the third base dugout on the Babe Ruth Field at Rabinowitz.

We send are heartfelt condolences to the Mair Family and all those that Ken touched while coaching and mentoring countless GVAA players.

It's volunteers like Ken that make GVAA and the Gibbsboro/Voorhees community a special place.

If you have a special memory, story or picture of Ken that you'd like to share, please post it on our facebook page or on the obituary's tribute wall.

In lieu of flowers, Ken's family would greatly appreciate all contributions be made to Samaritan Hospice, 5 Eves Dr. Suite 300, Marlton, NJ 08053 .

Thank You Ken, you will be missed.

Bat Rules

USABat Stamp of Approval

USABat Stamp of Approval

Cal Ripken Baseball in conjunction with USA Baseball has implemented bat rules that must be enforced at all levels in both our GVAA Rec and Travel programs. 

These bats are designed to act like wood bats and they must have a USABat Stamp of Approval to be legal for play.

USA BAT RULES for BABE RUTH/CAL RIPKEN Baseball

TEE BALL BAT RULES:

Beginning January 1, 2018, participating National Member Organizations will adopt the USABat standard for youth baseball and tee ball bats. Unlike standard youth baseball bats, tee ball bats (lengths 26” and shorter) are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat Program.

However, to be approved for play within the participating National Member Organizations, tee ball bats must feature the USA Baseball mark and accompanying permanent text which reads:

ONLY FOR USE WITH APPROVED TEE BALLS
