Joining The ROUGHNECKS

-Exclusive membership.
You will be expected to always be a Roughneck first, and not be a member of any other team in the area. This is primarily to avoid conflicts of interest when playing against other teams. Exceptions may be granted for players who don't live in Southern California full time.

-Ability to commit.
As a member of the team, you will be expected to show up to at least one game per month. Additionally, be aware that The Roughnecks occasionally participate in off-field events on days other than Saturday or Sunday; these events will usually be posted a week or more in advance.

-Attitude & honor.
Team image depends entirely on how its members conduct themselves. Subsequently, we have little or no tolerance for players who don't call their hits or repeatedly break other rules. Also, the Roughnecks employ a rank system among its members, and you may be expected to follow orders from time to time.

-Trial period.
The first step toward membership is to let us know who you are, and to play with or against us at our games. We want to make sure every new Roughneck member meets the requirements listed above.

-Initiation fee.
This $30 fee is primarily to pay for the Roughneck T-shirt and patches you will receive upon gaining membership. The remainder will go into an account that will be used for team events, Web site maintenance, Team BB's, or to help out players that might come up short on cash before attending team-related events.

There is a renewal fee of $20 per calendar year. Renewal fee is waved for people joining in the last quarter of the year and for ACTIVE Military.

History of the Team.
We were founded in 1999 by Gary Northrup and Chris Mason. The team was formed out of a desire to provide a fun place for all ages and to help teach all players to play safely and responsibly. Many of the current safety rules in use today by most teams and event coordinators were created by Gary and the team leadership.

After establishing The Roughnecks as a cornerstone of the Community, the team was then re-cast for a new generation of players. The team was presented with new leadership as well as some new challenges. Lead for over 15 years by "Gunther" and "Vic Romano", the team flurished and was instrumental in numerous colaberations with local teams and some of the greatest OPS southern California has seen. Many new teams started to spring up and several of the pivotal fields were being closed due to new housing projects and land development. These changes were met with fierce resolve from the new leadership.

Now, over 20 years old, The Roughnecks continue with the same foundational values set by its founders. We are led by "Snakeskin" and "Papa" with many of the original members still around. We have many new faces and new fields. However, the goal is still the same. Provide a safe and fun experience for all ages and walks of life.
