After bunkhouse move-in is completed, players and coaches go to admin/medical check-in to ensure their paperwork is in order. It is advised to double check accuracy and completeness of medical information prior to this check-in. Ensure that ALL families have listed Health Care Provider – name, address, and policy # (not just the address as is specified on the CASV form).
The Head Coach/Manager is required to officially sign his team in to CASV – which takes place at the courtyard beside the CASV souvenir shop. The coach will be provided wtih uniforms for the entire team (it is advisable to have a wagon or extra hands to help at this point).
There, players are provided their Cooperstown Home/Away uniforms each consisting of a high quality wind breaker, two (2) jerseys, hats, and socks (no pants).
CASV stresses that the institution of baseball is to be held in the highest regard and baseball is a team sport. Thus, all players competing at CASV are issued the same uniforms. Each field has a navy blue jersey team playing a white jersey team. The only problems the uniforms seem to cause is for the parents who forgot what field their son is playing on. There are no names on the back of their jerseys, only numbers and the CASV staff holds strictly to only allowing players to wear plain white pants. Only certain jersey number’s are available in certain sizes so, the players may not get their normal jersey number. Players are encouraged to stand out through their play on the field, not by what they are wearing. A Cooperstown jersey is a valued possession to the young players attending and many have them framed when they return home from their trip.
