About Us

Charter Oak Youth Baseball & Softball Association (COYBSA) is a recreational sports league serving the youth of Covina, Glendora, Azusa and San Dimas areas for over 60 years with a tradition of creating all-stars in Championship ASA Softball & PONY Baseball.

COYBSA is an independently run, non-profit organization and is not affiliated with any school district.

It is the purpose of this organization to achieve the following goals:

  1. To provide an organized, recreational softball program for the players.
  2. To provide an enjoyable and memorable experience for the players who participate in the program.
  3. To develop baseball and softball skills and gain an appreciation and knowledge of the game.
  4. To develop good sportsmanship.
  5. To develop the qualities of citizenship and leadership through the games of baseball and softball.
  6. To promote physical fitness for the players.

League Budget and Funding

The operating budget for COYBSA comes from registration fees, sponsorship, snack shack sales, the Annual Memorial Tournament, All-Star Tournament play, and additional fundraising efforts. Additional financial information may be obtained by contacting the COYBSA Treasurer.

Income Expenses

Expenses of the league vary from year to year depending on the amount budgeted for capital improvements (e.g. the snack shack, fencing, dugouts, playing equipment, maintenance). Player costs include expenses on uniforms, pictures, the yearbook, trophies, post-season play, umpires, scholarships and player development. Administration expenses include insurance, fees, registration, advertising and printing costs. There are NO paid positions within COYBSA Board of Directors, managers, coaches, or team parents.

Registration Costs

Registration amounts are set at levels that COYBSA believes are adequate and fair to cover expenses of play at each level. COYBSA also sets levels for budgeting purposes and bases them on the anticipated number of players for each season and related expenses. As such, COYBSA must make early financial commitments to assure that uniforms, equipment and other materials and supplies are purchased and received in a time frame that allows practices and games to start on schedule.

Fundraising

Fundraisers account for an important part of the overall income. The active participation of parents, managers, and coaches is required to make these efforts successful.

Sponsorships

A variety of sponsorships are available to individuals and companies alike. The generous support of our sponsors may be recognized in one or more of the following ways: sponsor signs at the fields; in the annual yearbook; on the COYBSA website; and through additional means as directed by the COYBSA Board of Directors. A plaque displaying a team picture is provided to each individual team sponsor. For additional information about available sponsorship opportunities, please check our website at www.coybsa.com.

Snack Shack

The snackbar at Charter Oak Park is maintained by volunteers and augmented by temporary paid help for the convenience of players and fans in attendance. Each COYBSA family is required to pay a deposit/buy-out at the beginning of each new season as defined in the registration process. You may choose to work your snackbar hours and have your deposit returned, or use the fee to buy-out your snackbar hours. Income from snackbar sales are a major source of funding for the COYBSA operating budget. The snackbar is intended to be open for all games, and each team is required to provide adult volunteers to work in the snack shack at various times throughout the season.
