Spring 2021 Season FAQ's

As of now, we are preparing for a Spring 2021 Season with the possibility of live games being played. The FBA Board continues to monitor the progress at the state and city level with regards to Youth Sports and the guidelines being set forth. As we get closer to the season start, we'll adjust based on the ever-changing guidelines.

What is permitted at this time:

Youth sports and physical education permitted only when the following can be achieved:

when physical distancing of at least six feet can be maintained at all times   

a stable cohort such as a class or team is maintained 

Team practices may resume if following the above requirements. 

What is not permitted at this time: 

Contact Drills, Inter-squad scrimmages, games or tournaments are not permitted.

Any activity which does not allow for six feet of physical distancing. 

Any activity which has individual participants rotating through groups.  

These requirements were in alignment with the State of California, County of San Bernardino and City of Fontana guidance that can be found below:

If No Games Are Played Will There Be a Refund? 

No. We have tailored the registration costs to be as low as possible while still providing for the means of playing games if possible. Costs stemming from insurance, city field fees, field maintaince, equipment, etc. will all still be realized whether we play games or not. By keeping your out-of-pocket costs lower than a traditional season, it's allowed us to avoid any potential refund necessities. As a reminder,  FBA is a non-profit organization.


Fontana Residency vs Non-Residency

City of Fontana regulations require all leagues to maintain a player residency requirement of 80/20 to have access to fields and practice sites. While FBA has always met the residency requirement in previous years, our percentage has come close to the minimum requirement the last few seasons and we want to make sure our families are aware of the situation. Fontana Parks and Recreational department monitors our league registrations very closely. 

In the unlikely event that our "residency" percentage drops below 80%, we will be forced to implement a "wait list" for non-residents based upon registration date. We don't foresee this being an issue and will notify families ASAP if a wait list goes into effect. There would then be a charge of $25 for all non-residents outside of the Fontana zip codes. This increase would be to offset the out of residency fees the City of Fontana would charge us.
 

Registration Fees include: Insurance, Field Maintenance, hat, umpire fees, City of Fontana field usage fees, equipment, pictures, general league operations, etc
