MIKE ROWEKAMP SCHOLARSHIP


Mike, Coaching for BFA in 1996

 

A generous financial donation from the Rowekamp family in honor of Mike Rowekamp, has allowed BFA to continue offering financial assistance to qualifying players in 2021. Mike was instrumental in starting the first 10U fastpitch league in Minnesota and coached in Bloomington for 25 years. He not only taught his players the fundamentals of playing ball, but also that hard work has reward, that winning is fun but it's important to win graciously, and that something is learned from losing as well.

Bloomington Fastpitch Association (BFA) seeks to provide recreation programs for traveling fastpitch sports participants. This policy and procedure establishes a program which may provide financial assistance on a need-basis for up to 50% of the player registration fees.
