** Concussion and Head Injury Procedures **
You had an opportunity to read these procedures during the registration, with your player, and acknowledge you read them. The procedures are linked here for your reference:
** PONY Bat Rules **
Effective January 1, 2018, with the exception of -3 (BBCOR certified), all other 2 1/4" and 2 5/8" barrel bats with a minus factor of (-5, -7, -9, etc.), must be USABat certified with the USABat licensing stamp on the bat in order to be used for league and tournament play.
Tee ball bats are not required to undergo lab testing to receive approval under the USABat program. However, to be approved for play, tee ball bats must carry the USA Baseball mark accompanied by the following text: "Only For Use With Approved Tee Ball Bats." If you already have a tee ball bat you would like to continue using, all you have to do is purchase a USA Bat sticker directly from USA Baseball and place it on your bat.

Refund policy: The league incurs costs in advance of each season to pay for items such as uniforms, equipment, etc. Due to these upfront costs, CPBA charges a $25 administration fee for refunds prior to a player being placed on a team. Refunds requested after a player is drafted and/or placed on a team will be honored at a 50% rate. Draft/player placement is scheduled for Thursday, January 24, 2018. No refund is available after the first game has been played.
