Adams Park safety statement from the KBA Board of Directors

It has come to attention of the Board of Directors that there have been several occasions of parents dropping off their young players at the park without parental supervision during team practices. Full parental responsibility is mandatory when your child is on the Adams Park grounds during practices and games. There have been several reported cases from other local area parks of young children being approached by individuals not directly related to the stipulated program. Head Coaches and the Coaching staff are there to teach baseball to our young players, and with as many players per team, there responsibilities are spread to several individuals and not just one. We are requiring that at least 1 parent must accompany their child when participating in baseball activities at Adams Park facility. If your child is un-accompanied and your coach is unaware of no parental presence, parents will be notified to pick up their children immediately. Please help enforce park safety to keep our children and your park safe.

Lock Your Doors, Set Your Alarm – An unlocked car is an invitation to theft. Car locks and alarms are your first line of defense: an open door provides the perfect opportunity for a thief to get in your car with little or no effort or detection. Use audible alarms it’s a quick notification of unwanted entry.

Hide Valuables Left in Your Car - If you must store portable electronic (GPS units or other) in your vehicle place them in the truck or glove compartment. Don’t leave anything of value in your car. Leaving your purse, wallet, checkbook, computer laptop or even your golf clubs in plain sight in your car can be an open invitation to a thief. Again, if you must leave personal items in your car, secure them in the trunk and out of sight of the thief.  Always remove these personal items from your vehicle when you park the car for the evening.

Any suspicious activity or loitering in the parking lot should be reported to the Kennesaw Police Department 770-422-2505. (Emergency 911)

CI Cards are to be worn at all times on the field and in the dugout. There are no exceptions to this policy.
