Welcome to the Kankakee Valley Association of Baseball & Fastpitch Softball!
We are a recreational program that was formed in 1954 for the purpose of teaching baseball & softball fundamentals,
sportsmanship, fair play & good citizenship on & off the field. We are the premier program in LaPorte County and
have since started to include teams from the surrounding counties. Towns included in the KVA are:
Fish Lake, Kingsbury, LaPorte, Westville, Rolling Praire, & Starke County

2014-2015 10U LAZERS SOFTBALL TRYOUTS!!!!!
Tryouts for the 10U LAZERS fastpitch travel softball team will be held on Saturdays, 8/2 & 8/9, in LaPorte.
The 10U LAZERS is a second year, competitive team that recently competed in the 2014 NSA World Series. We have a strong core of returning players and are looking to fill 5-6 open roster spots at this time. We are seeking players born in 2004, but will also consider strong '05s.
Our intent is to play this fall and then begin with practices and indoor tournaments January through March. We begin our outdoor schedule in late April and will continue through the end of July, ending with the 2015 NSA World Series.
To register for tryouts and for additional information, please text/

KVA SPORTSMANSHIP & ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
Kankakee Valley Association has adopted a ZERO TOLERANCE rule.
ANY harassment of anyone associated with the game by managers, coaches, players or fans will not be tolerated. (Harassment includes by is not limited to arguing, yelling, threatening with actions or words, throwing equipment, running onto the field, and use of profane language directed toward someone else). ANYONE who harasses any offical (umpire, scorekeeper, league rep, managers, coaches or players) will be immediately ejected from the ballpark. If the ejected person refuses to leave the park, the team associated with said person will forfeit the game. It should be apparent that the league Officers, along with the Board of Presidents, are no longer going to tolerate unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of anyone associated with the game, including fans. It is time that the "ADULTS" act like adults and set a good example for those who are younger and look at adults as role models. The League Officers, along with the Board of Presidents, reserve the right to expel from the ranks, any manager, coach, umpire or players they determine to be incompatible with the objectives of the League.
