NEW BAT REGULATIONS FOR THE 2018 SEASON
New youth bat regulations will be in place for the 2018 LCBSA Season that is MANDATED by the NATIONAL PONY ASSOCIATION. Bats that were utilized in prior seasons (with the exception of BBCOR -3 bats) WILL NO LONGER BE LEGAL for LCBSA and Pony games. You can find more information here:
In accordance with AB 2007, a new California state law that went into effect January 1, 2017. Youth sports organizations, such as LCBSA, are required to adopt a concussion protocol, train board members and coaches, and provide information to athletes and parents about the signs and symptoms of concussions and what to do if a concussion is suspected. We need each LCBSA player to have the Parent & Athlete Concussion Information Sheet (second page) signed by their parent or guardian, and give it to your player's coach as soon as possible.
Keep in mind that the training was developed for high school student-athletes, so it states that "adolescents are at highest risk." In fact, children are at even higher risk than adolescents because their brains are in a more vulnerable stage of development.
We are looking forward to working with our sponsor partners again in 2018, and we are looking for more sponsors!
