Frequently Asked Questions

Are you running camps in the summer of 2020? 
The health and safety of our campers and staff has always been our number one priority. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot comfortably run our camps this summer, nor confidently ensure everyone's health. We also can't promise that our campers will receive the experience they know, love, and deserve. Thus, we are cancelling all BBA camps this summer. 

We are offering families who already registered the option of either a full refund or a credit for a future camp next summer. If your family chooses the refund option, we will issue you a full refund electronically via Zelle or a mailed check. If your family chooses the credit option, your registration will roll over to next summer as a credit. You won't have to pay any price increases in 2021, and we will provide you with an additional $50 per camper to use at another of our camps.

Where do the camps take place?
We have outgrown our old location and are now holding camps at Foothill Middle School in Walnut Creek. 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 and school year. 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. 

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. 

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

  • Water Bottle
  • Snack
  • Sack lunch
  • Jacket or sweatshirt
  • Sunscreen
  • Glove
  • Bat (optional)
  • Helmet (optional)
  • Catcher's gear (optional)

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       

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?
Arrive 15 - 30 minutes early on the first day for check-in. Parents should be present for check-in on the first morning. After the first day, parents do not need to check-in their child, and players should arrive about 5-10 minutes early. We kindly ask that players are not dropped off before 8:45am each morning, as we are unable to supervise early arrivals. 

How does pick-up and check-out work?
For safety and security reasons, we do not allow players to leave the premises on their own once they are checked in to camp. Thus, at the conclusion of camp each day, a parent or registered guardian must sign their child out of camp. We require parents/guardians to show a photo ID at checkout to further ensure the safety of our campers. Also, we will only release campers to parents or guardians listed on the player's registration. So please email us at [email protected] if anyone else is picking up your child or your child is going home in a carpool.

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.

Do you offer an Early Bird discounts?
Yes! Each camp is regularly $350 per player, however we do offer an early bird discount of $75 prior to March 1. Starting March 1, the cost of camp increases to $350. The Early Bird Discount is the greatest discount that we will offer this season for returning customers. 

What is your coupon policy?
Occasionally we offer coupons, Groupons, discounts, or deals. The savings from these offers are only given to those who have purchased the coupon or deal and have the redeemable receipt or promo code. When a Groupon is offered, it is only available to new customers of BBA, or customers who have not attended BBA for two summers.

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.
