Why are Fees Increasing?

For the 2021 season, the Tri-Valley Baseball Association Board has voted to raise program fees in the majority of our divisions this year.  This is the first program increase in Many years.  This is not something we are doing lightly, but in consideration of current programming costs (equipment, league fees, insurance) need to improve our balance sheet for future programming. 

So from the above statement 2 notes: 

1)  The registration fees we are charging do not, nor have not, covered all of the costs of putting a team on the field.  Our Association does has not lost money - we have supplemented those losses with fundraising and sponsorship from community organizations.  While we will work to increase our fundraising activities and sponsorship activities, we also need to look at our cost of baseball compared to other communities around us that charge more for similar programming.    

2)  We want to invest in our players and our coaches.  

Below you will see the costs of putting a team on the field in each of our divisions - remember, some of our divisions have 4-5 teams.  So if that team costs $685 - that division is costing the association $2,740.   In that example, our registration fees would bring in  $2,000.00.  

With the increase costs - we are looking at each division and coming up with where the additional money can go to improve the quality of baseball for the division.  For Peewee's and Midgets - maybe that means bringing in special Pitching Instruction.  For younger ages, maybe we need to provide Training opportunities for the Coaches.   The majority of these opportunities will be available for everyone with no additional cost.  Occasionally - we may sponsor clinics/camps - but we will cover the majority of those costs for those who participate.  

If you have any questions,  please feel free to reach out to any board member.    [email protected]
