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
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.

CBC Insurance program
Included in the baseball registration fee is the
cost of accident insurance which protects your child in the event of an
injury sustained during a league game or authorized practice.
The plan provides for secondary insurance coverage
only, meaning any primary coverage must be utilized first before this plan
becomes effective. The CBC insurance plan has a $25 deductible and
will pay any claims over and above your primary coverage up to a maximum of
$10,000 for medical claims and $500 for dental claims.
