REGAL Pick Up Procedures

January 6, 2015

It has come to the attention of the REGAL board that girls are waiting outside after games and practices for their rides. THIS IS UNSAFE FOR MANY REASONS.

REGAL is asking parents to please avoid a tragic situation and come into the gyms to pick up your daughters.

This is particularly true for our youngest girls, and coaches will not be allowing any girl playing in the instructional or minors divisions to leave the gym without a parent or guardian coming into the gym and claiming their child.

If your child will be going home with another parent that is NOT you, we ask that you alert the coach before hand, either via email or when you drop your child off.

REGAL takes the safety of our participants very seriously, and this is to keep our girls safe before, during and after games and practices.

Thank you in advance for your compliance with this safety policy.

Safety Glasses Required

March 22, 2012
(Updated January 2014)

REgal is now requiring girls who wear corrective eyewear and participate in any team sport (Softball, Basketball & Volleyball) to wear safety glasses in place of regular lenses. Please be advised that this is a NJ state law. For your reference, the portion of the law that pertains to our league is listed below, as well as a link to the law itself.

"Any child who wears corrective eyeglasses while participating in racquetball, squash, tennis, women's lacrosse, basketball, women's field hockey, badminton, paddleball, soccer, volleyball, baseball or softball, sponsored by a school, community or government agency, shall be required to wear protective eyewear that meets the frames standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F803 and lens standards of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z87.1."

The law can be found here.

Starting on January 1, 2014, any girl who does not have the proper eyewear that conforms to State Law will not be permitted to participate in REGAL sports. There will be no exceptions, and this will be enforced by our referees.
