Welcome to the home of RASA,
the place for all the latest information regarding the Richland Area Softball Association.
RASA offers softball at a variety of levels,
with teams appropriate for girls from ages 5 through 24.
As the situation surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak changes by the day, the RASA board would like to update you and present the options for carrying out the remainder of the spring season based on state and local government recommendations.
As our website and Facebook page state, the playing fields at Veteran’s Park are closed until further notice. The open grass areas and walking trails will remain open for exercise purposes, but we encourage proper social distancing practices when in use.
Our postponed work day scheduled for 4/4 will once again be re-scheduled for a later date. Opening Day on 4/18 is cancelled, and we are hoping to re-schedule as soon as possible.
There will be ongoing discussions about a potential condensed season, and incorporating our special events, including the All-Star game, Home Run Derby, and playoff games in that time.
We encourage players to continue sharpening their skills and send us pictures to share. Please be safe and follow all recommended guidelines.
In response to the recent announcement from Quakertown Township and Borough, Veterans Park softball fields will be closed until further notice. Trails and open spaces remain OPEN, but please continue practicing social distancing.
The North Penn Gun Club has been a long and loyal supporter of RASA. In addition to the support of RASA, they continue to provide meals for needy families in the community.
Due to the Governor mandate they were forced to close the business for 14 days… To keep the kitchen running and the staff working, they are offering a modified menu (link below) for take-out and limited delivery. Credit cards will be accepted during this time 215-536-9486 & 267-718-3372

RASA has instituted the following background check procedure for all adults volunteering as coaches, assistant coaches, and for any activity that requires direct and routine contact with children participating in a RASA activity.
The following three (3) items are required for all RASA volunteers:
3) A copy of your Driver’s License showing your current address (must match the address on both of your background checks)
The online background checks are currently offered online for free. Criminal History and Child Abuse records are considered valid for 5 years. However, copies of all three (3) of these forms will need to be provided to RASA once a year. All volunteers must submit the three (3) documents before any RASA activities commence.
Please send the forms to RASA... Email:

Thank you for your support as we all look forward to another safe and fun softball season
Updating and reviewing your RASA contact information
Every spring season, we have receive numerous email requests to update contact information such as email addresses and phone numbers - the RASA website has functionality to let you do this yourself. It may not be a bad idea just to log in and review the information that is available, as there are several options you may not know about, such as text message functionality to your cell phone (how nice would that be when a game is canceled at the last minute?).
To check or update your personal information, simply:
Enter your email address and password and click "Submit"
If you forgot your password or never had one due to registering in person, simply enter just the email address you provided when you registered and click "Submit" - the system will send you your password via email.
