RMMBA UNIFORM POLICY
Ridge Meadows Minor Baseball Association (RMMBA) strives to project a professional image at all times; with the competitive team uniform playing an integral part in that image. The competitive team uniform helps forge the association's identity and fosters pride in the organization. RMMBA has, therefore, established the following guidelines and policies for competitive team uniforms. All players and coaches will be asked to adhere to this uniform policy.
All uses of the Association’s name and logos may not be reproduced in whole or in part by anyone without the expressed permission of the Association. The Association’s Logo cannot be altered in any way. Any team wishing to purchase additional items for their team with these logos on them need to obtain written approval by sending an email to [email protected]
The Board of Directors will approve as part of the annual budget, the make-up of the Competitive team uniform.

RMMBA recognizes that many of its activities provide potential sources of revenue or other non-financial benefits through legitimate and worthwhile opportunities for sponsorships and other promotional activities. This revenue can be beneficial to RMMBA members and, in turn, the local community.
Sponsorship opportunities are optional and can be considered by coaches and team members when seeking additional revenue opportunities.
RMMBA will permit one sponsorship logo to be printed on the sleeve of the Competitive informs, provided the following conditions are met:
Minimum $2500/year sponsorship for logo to appear on the sleeve of our jerseys
All sponsorship must be approved by the Board, and all monies must be paid to RMMBA (unless otherwise approved by the Board)
Please note: Parents and family members are welcome to sponsor teams however, coaches must ensure the sponsor understands the sponsorship will not influence the player’s playing time or selection to future teams.
Teams found to contravene this policy will be assessed penalties as follows:
a. Team places sponsor’s logo on club uniform in a location not approved by club policy; or
b. Team uses the RMMBA logos on other clothing without approval of or permission from the Board.
Head Coach suspended for 3 games.
Head Coach suspended for 6 months from all RMMBA coaching duties. Coaches must reapply to coach this or other RMMBA teams.
Decisions may be appealed to the Board of Directors within 1 week of being notified of the penalty. Appeals must be made in writing with a $50 fee. The fee will be refunded if the appeal is successful.
In the event of an appeal, the case will be heard by a 3-member panel of the RMMBA Board of Directors. The panel will be chaired by the Director of Discipline or in her/his absence, the President or Vice-President of the club.
