2020 Season Canceled!
Posted May 5, 2020

Due to the uncertainty of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic situation, the leagues that we participate in, the Northeast Athletic Association (NEAA), formally known as the Northeast Peanut League (NEPL), has decided to cancel the season.  In addition, the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and the RBI leagues are still uncertain as they have canceled their season until further notice.  Because of this, and with our consideration for the safety of the children, parents and volunteers, the Fox-Rok Athletic Association has decided to cancel the 2020 baseball/softball season.  In addition, we are also canceling our flag football season.  Listed below are the three (3) options you can exercise.  This includes detailed instructions for these offerings for those who are presently registered for these sports.  They are as follows:


1.  Apply your spring registration fee as a donation to our non-profit organization.  This would allow us to complete our normal field maintenance program, cover some of our other overhead costs and lower player registration costs.  Emails are to be sent to [email protected].

2.  Request a credit to be applied to next year’s season.  Should you select this option we will automatically transfer your 2020 spring season registration fee to the 2021 spring season saving you any cost increase and additional transaction fees.  A potential saving of $50.00.  You do not need to do anything as those who do not respond by June 30th will automatically be credited to the 2021 season.

3.  Request a reimbursement to be sent to the account holder in accordance with our refund policy as posted on our website at www.foxrokaa.com.  Emails to be sent to [email protected]

For those requesting a reimbursement, a check will be mailed to you in compliance with our refund policy. The refund policy is posted on our website at www.foxrokaa.com under “Code of Conduct & Policies,” then view, “Refunds.”  We will process these as quickly as possible.  This is a manual process, which will take time as we have more than 400 players enrolled.  We ask for your patience.

PLEASE NOTE:  When sending your email, please include your child/children’s name, enrolled sport and include your option preference.  If you do not indicate your choice for donation or reimbursement by June 30, 2020, your registration will automatically be transferred to next year’s spring season.

In the meantime, we hope you and your family are healthy and well.


Season Update!
Posted April 18, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Fox-Rok Athletic Association and the leagues we participate in will make a decision during the first week of May on whether or not to move forward with baseball, softball and our flag football programs.  This decision will be in compliance with the new restrictions set forth by our Federal, State and Local Governments at that time.  This is only a two (2) week delay from the planned start of the season.  We ask for your patience.


Should the decision be to cancel the season, listed below are the options that we will offer to those who are presently registered for these sports:

1.  Apply your spring registration fee as a donation to our non-profit organization.  This would allow us to complete our normal field maintenance program and cover some of our other overhead costs.

2.  Request a credit to be applied to next year’s season.  We will automatically transfer your 2020 season registration fee to the 2021 season saving you any cost increase and additional transaction fees.

3.  Request a reimbursement to be sent to the account holder in accordance with our refund policy as posted on our website at www.foxrokaa.com.

An email will be sent to all registered players during the first week in May indicating the final status.

At that time, should the season be canceled, you will be provided with specific instructions on how to exercise the options stated above.

In the meantime, we hope you and your family are healthy and well.



Update - Flag Football Season Has Been Delayed!
Posted April 1, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in compliance with social distancing and other restrictions set forth by our Federal, State and Local Governments, all activities at Fox-Rok A.A. have been suspended until further notice.  This includes field cleanup, opening day parade, our monthly general meetings and the planned opening of the baseball/softball and flag football season.


Should the season be canceled, we will provide refunds to those requesting one, in accordance with our policy (view “Refunds” page found under the heading of “Code of Conduct & Policies”), or we are willing to credit your registration fee payment for next season as many people have already requested.  This would relieve the impact costs of credit card fees to all.


Again, our season is NOT canceled, just delayed! 


Please continue to check back here for updates.  In the meantime, we hope you and your family are healthy and well.

How to Register
To register for any sport with the Fox-Rok Athletic Association go to the "home page" of this website and click on “Register” that is located in the upper right hand corner.  Or click on the registration tab that is located under the desired sport.  You will then need to click on “Create New Account or just “Login” if you have already created an account.  As a reminder, you must first have an account before you can register your child/children.  The process is easy.

Once you have created an account, you then need to list your child/children before you can choose a program to play in.  Select “Add Participant.”  Enter the child’s name and complete all of the required fields.  If you have more children to register, don’t select “Next.”  Select “Add Another Participate.”  Once you have added all of your children you should select “Next.”

After you have entered all of your children only then will the system allow you to select the available program for that child or children.  Make your selection.  Continue to complete the necessary fields until you have completed your order.  You will receive an email confirmation after you have successfully completed the process. 

After the first time you register your child/children the system will remember your information!  You will only need to update a few lines as opposed to starting from scratch when registering for all other Fox-Rok sports.

Please note, if you want to coach or volunteer in any way you must create an account online and state your interest.  The program is set up to ask if you have a desire to volunteer and in what role.

To get on the mailing list you must create an account online.

If you experience any difficulties in registering and require assistance, please call 844.374.8747 during normal business hours.

Concerning Registrations!
Registration cutoff dates are established mainly to ensure that uniforms and the necessary equipment needs can be identified and ordered in time to be received before the start of the playing season.  This is the case for each sport offering at Fox-Rok A.A.  Occasionally we have situations where we may require additional players to prevent a team or teams from folding and will solicit players by posting these openings on our website.  That is the only time we will accept registrations after the established cutoff date.  This website provides ample notice time for registration of all sports.  On our website, at the top of each sport page, it states the month of when registrations are held and the duration of the season.  It is provided for your planning purposes.

Flag football is a non-contact version of football where the basic rules of the game are similar to those of the mainstream game, but instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier to end a down. 


Flag Football is a co-ed football league sponsored by the Fox-Rok Athletic Association organization to provide children ages 5 through 13 years old the opportunity to learn the proper skills of football in a safe environment, build social skills, instill teamwork and fundamental life skills, while having fun and learning the sport.  Flag football is a great non-contact fun sport that the children will enjoy.  Especially those children who are new to football and have an interested in it.  This is a great way to introduce them to the game and having fun.

Those requiring additional information are to contact Michael O'Neill at [email protected] or via telephone at 215.519.1504.
