Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
FCBC strives to provide a top quality recreational program for the youth of Fort Collins and surrounding communities.
The average cost of participation in the recreational league is $7.00 to $12.00 per game. This cost when further spread between practices and supervised team activities is reduced another 50-66%, making baseball a very economical and rewarding summer program. FCBC is funded solely through fees, sponsorships, fundraising and donations. FCBC provides, on an average, over $14,000 per year of reduced fees and scholarships to lower income and in-need families.
FCBC is governed by a Board of Directors, who employs a full-time Executive Director to oversee the day to day management of the organization. FCBC has two standing committees, Recreational and Competitive, who in turn have representatives on the Board of Directors. In 2010, FCBC played games seven days a week on sixty-four different ball fields throughout the community. All available city, school district, and private fields were utilized during the season. Along with the city field crews, many of these fields are partially and some fully maintained by field crews hired by FCBC. In addition, sixty-one highly trained and tested umpires, covering nearly 3500 games are employed by the club. Well over 400 volunteer coaches and other team personnel participate in the program every year.
Fort Collins Baseball Club is a private non profit organization which has served Fort Collins and the surrounding area since 1961. FCBC has over 250 teams with a total enrollment of more than 3300 players, ranging in age from 5-18yrs participate in spring, summer, fall and winter indoor leagues. Some teams, play competitively in our Rookie League and Select Divisions with more playing in our High School American Legion Program. The bulk of the FCBC Club however, continues to emphasize the fundamental importance of recreational baseball, not only as a feeder to these competitive teams, but also as an essential source of alternative summer and fall recreation for our young people.
In keeping up with the tremendous demand for fields, FCBC has become a leader in field construction and joint city and school district projects to this end. In 1993 FCBC completed the Boltz Field Project resulting in the construction of 2 new fields at a local junior high. With additional cooperation between the city and school district in 1995, three new fields were constructed at Lincoln Jr. High and one at Timnath Elementary. Walt Weiss Field and Larry Walker Field are two of the last to be built through a grant with the Colorado Rockies and the McCormick Tribune Foundation. FCBC continues to promote a pro-active approach to working with the private and public sectors in providing more recreation opportunities for our youth.
