About CBC

 

Chesterfield Baseball Club is one of the largest youth baseball organizations in the state of Virginia.   In past years more than 3,100 boys and girls participated in leagues beginning at age 5 and continuing until age 18.  In the 5 and 6 year old age bracket, CBC fielded 46 teams.   Ages 7 and 8 were the most popular age groups with a whopping 64 teams participating.  The 9 and 10 year old bracket had 54 teams playing while the 11 and 12 year olds had 54 teams.   The 13 and 14 year olds fielded 36 teams.   With these kinds of numbers playing under one organization, just imagine the tremendous effort required to run the program. 

CBC is comprised of 26 local athletic associations stretching throughout the county.   The boundary lines for the associations are the same as those for the elementary schools which they represent.  From the northern part of the county near Midlothian to Matoaca in the South, CBC provides youth baseball opportunities for every boy and girl in Chesterfield County. 

Coordinating 26 associations and 3,100 kids is not an easy task.  It requires hundreds of volunteers who graciously give up their time for the betterment of the program.  The CBC Executive Board, League Commissioners, and the Association's Board of Governors dictate the rules and policies.  The coaches and their assistants provide the teaching and instructions for the players.  Finally, the score keepers, team mothers, and all of the other team helpers make the games happen.
