Coach Applications


To maintain consistency and cohesiveness among all players and age levels in our association, and to ensure all teams are abiding by NAFA and ASA uniform guidelines, the following uniform rules are implemented and will be enforced.


***Players not in compliance will not be permitted to take the field at any time during a game. Jersey swapping is not allowed during a game.***

Jerseys, pants and socks will be issued to each player, with assigned number, by the Anoka Ramsey Fastpitch Association.

Players should wear a clean, in tact, full, current season uniform at each game.

Jerseys must be tucked in.


Jerseys are to remain as they are issued. Alterations of any kind will be in violation.

-Names of players or sponsors shall not be added to uniforms unless done so by the association at time of issue.

Team banners, signs, team shirts are fun and encouraged but must contain the ARFP name and logo.

In addition to the above, the following rules will be enforced by umpires:

No jewelry is to be worn.

Medic alert jewelry or religious emblems may be worn but must be secured with tape.

Pitchers may not wear anything on their pitching arm considered to be distracting to the batter. Ump discretion. 


Team Nicknames are a fun way to bond and are encouraged! However, when registering for tournaments, please register teams as :

Anoka/Ramsey 12U Maroon



All coaches must print and sign the code of conduct form and then return to your director.

All parents must sign, and have their player sign, and return to their coach or team manager.  Coaches and team managers are responsible for collecting and turning in to their Director.
