CAMARILLOPONY BASEBALL ASSOCIATION FREQUENTLYASKEDQUESTIONS(FAQ)
Does the league carry insurance?
The league carries liability insurance as required by PONY Baseball, the Pleasant Valley School District, and the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Parks District. For many years, CPBA carried a secondary health insurance policy. As costs rose over the years, and use of the policy was rather infrequent, the Board decided a few years ago to discontinue this coverage.
CPBA does not carry any form of health care or accident insurance. Parents are responsible for any costs for health care incurred due to injury as a result of a child participating in Camarillo PONY Baseball.
