ASAP Safety Plan
Dear Parents, Volunteers, Coaches and Managers
The BGLLS Board of Directors has adopted safety rules to be followed at all game and practices. This document, as well as other important safety forms can be on the leage website found under "League Forms". Please read it carefully to familiarize yourself with our policies. All Managers and Coaches are to have this manual present at all BGLLS games and practices to be used as a reference though the season. Safety begins with all of us. Throughout the season please encourage common sense and good safety measures. You should report all accidents, safety infractions, and field and equipment concerns.
