Frequently Asked Questions

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 Bronco Softball?
BBA is introducing Bronco Softball in the summer of 2024. This is an opportunity for girls between 5-12 years old to attend BBA Camps and play on a team of all girls with dedicated softball coaches and training. Just like the boys on the baseball teams, the sotball teams will also participate in all of BBA's fun activities and games throughout the day and week.

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
  • Lunch (in cooler if possible)
  • Jacket or sweatshirt
  • Sunscreen and chapstick
  • Glove
  • Bat
  • Helmet

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

  • Baseball hat / Softball hat or visor
  • Baseball / Softball pants
  • Comfortable shirt or jersey
  • Baseball, softball or athletic cleats
  • Protective baseball cup recommended

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.  

What time should we arrive and where do we go on the first day?
On the first day of camp, please arrive at Foothill Middle School between 8:40-9:00am. We ask that all parents park their car in the main parking lot or adjacent streets and walk their child into camp. We will provide your child's team assignment, and have you walk them to their team tent so that they can meet their child's coach and help their child get settled.  

How does pick-up and check-out work?
Pick-up is at 3:00pm every day at Foothill Middle School. In order to check-out your child from BBA, an authorized adult must walk to the child's team tent, show photo ID, and sign them out from their coach. If you need to add and authorized adult to your pick-up list, please alert your coach or or camp director. Players cannot leave on their own and must be checked-out by authorized adults only.

How do 1st and 8th graders attend camp together? How do boys and girls attend the same camp?
We separate the camps by age and skill level, so your child will practice and play against other players in their level. Additionally, we have dedicated boys and girls teams so players focus on baseball or softball based on their sport of choice. 

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/shaded area. Always assume the camp will continue unless notified otherwise. 

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.

What is your COVID-19 plan to ensure the health and safety of campers?
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. 

What does a typical day consist of at BBA? Do you have a daily schedule?
