Frequently Asked Questions

Are you running camps in the summer of 2021? 
Yes! Our camps are on for summer 2021!

What is your COVID-19 plan to ensure the health and safety of campers?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Bronco Baseball Academy is determined to provide the safest and healthiest camp environment possible. We have developed a COVID-19 Plan that lays out protocols and procedures that will help keep all campers, families, and staff members safe and healthy during this time. 

Where do the camps take place?
Our camps are held at Foothill Middle School in Walnut Creek, unless otherwise noted. The fields are located directly on Cedro Lane and parking can be found along the street or in the front parking lot of the school. 

When are the various camps? 
Bronco Baseball camps are held throughout the summer in June and July. Check the home page for exact dates and times.   

What is your refund policy?
Our refund policy is designed to discourage last minute cancellations and to help families on our waiting list. The camp fee is refundable minus 25% up to two weeks prior to the camp start date. Within two weeks of the camp start date, there are no refunds or transfers. During camp there is no refund for camper illness, missed days, or vacations. 

In the unlikely event that the school district does not permit us to hold camps this summer because of COVID-19, we will roll over your payment until Summer 2022, or issue you a refund, less a $15 processing fee.

How do 1st and 8th graders attend camp together?
We separate the camps by age and skill level, so your child will practice and play against other players in their level. This summer, stable groups/teams will play together the entire week and will not mix with other stable groups/teams. 

What should my child bring to camp?
Each player should bring a bag or backpack (put name on every item) with:

  • Water Bottle(s)
  • Snack
  • Sack lunch
  • Jacket or sweatshirt
  • Sunscreen
  • Glove
  • Bat
  • Helmet
  • Masks
  

What should my child wear to camp?
Each player should wear the following to camp each day:

  • Baseball hat
  • Baseball pants
  • Comfortable shirt or jersey
  • Baseball or athletic cleats
  • Protective baseball cup
  • Mask 


What will you do if there is inclement weather?
If it begins raining or gets too hot during a camp or clinic, we will take the players into the gym or keep them in the dugout or a covered area. Always assume the camp will continue unless notified otherwise. 

What time should we arrive and where do we go on the first day?
Please review our COVID-19 Plan for updated drop-off information.  

How does pick-up and check-out work?
Please review our COVID-19 Plan for updated pick-up information. 

Where are the bathrooms and how do bathroom breaks work?
Two staff members will take groups of players to the bathrooms located adjacent to the fields and gymnasium. The staff members will ensure that the areas inside and outside the bathroom are clean and safe, and then wait outside for the campers to finish. We NEVER have staff members inside a bathroom with a camper. There are sinks and soap in the bathroom, and our staff provides hand sanitizer for campers to clean their hands further if necessary.

Is there a Certified Athletic Trainer at camp?
All camps will be staffed by specially-trained medical staff and a certified Athletic Trainer. Our certified Athletic Trainer handles all health related issues, minor injuries, and other medical issues. S/he also teaches the campers about hydration, nutrition, sun protection, sleep patterns, and exercise programs that help athletes stay healthy, safe, and effective. Besides our on-site certified Athletic Trainer, we all ensure that our staff instructors are CPR certified and have training in injury response as well as proactive injury prevention.

What is your coach to camper ratio?
Because of our strong emphasis on individual attention to each camper, we provide 1 coach for every 6 campers.

Do you offer scholarships or discounts for families in need?
Yes! Recipients of the Joe Dawson Memorial Scholarship receive one week of Bronco Baseball Academy (BBA) at no charge and all the necessary equipment for camp and their summer baseball needs. This scholarship application process is open to all local families once per child, per summer. (Children must be between 5-12 years old to attend BBA.) The BBA staff will award a limited number of scholarships based on financial need, interest and involvement in baseball, potential for growth and development through the BBA experience, and space availability. This scholarship fund was created in memory of Joe Dawson, a longtime supporter of the Northgate community, youth baseball, and local families in need.
