Remembering Jacob Gibson

 

LCBSA family past and present, 

 

It is with a heavy heart that I let all of you konw we lost one of our own this week, Jacob Gibson, 13.  Jacob is an LCBSA alumni, who passed away on Monday 8/17 after a tragic skateboarding accident.   He was loved dearly by so many, which makes this so very hard.   

 

Jacob played on my Bronco team during the 2019 season…….he was so full of life, a great teammate, and always had a big smile on his face.    Others in LCBSA who also coached him have shared similar experiences and to a person are deeply saddened.

 

Jacob is survived by his wonderful parents Jake and Susan, as well as his younger sister Lily (also an LCBSA alumni).   

 

His family provided me two pictures to share with you.   The first picture is of Jacob just last weekend during a sunset camping trip at El Capitan.   The second picture was drawn by a friend of his on the Tuesday, after his passing.

                                         

                                         

 

Family friends have setup a “GoFundMe” page in Jacob’s honor.   In historic LCBSA fashion, I encourage all of us to show support to the Gibson family by making a donation in memory of Jacob.

Finally, his dad Jake wanted everyone to know………..PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE be sure your children are always wearing a helmet. 

 

Jacob, you will be missed….but never forgotten.  

 

Rest in peace,

Coach Joe

               ***2020 Spring Season Officially Cancelled***

 

LCBSA Families

 

Due to a variety of important considerations, the 2020 Spring Season has been cancelled.    This was tough decision. 

 

As a result, the Board voted to offer a $60 per player refund for the Spring season for those families who would like one.  In determining the appropriate amount to offer, the Board took into account all of the upfront expenses already incurred by the league, which include: uniforms, insurance, equipment/supplies, website hosting fees, background checks, pre-season field maintenance & preparation, league registrations fees (Pony, Babe Ruth, and USA Softball), and more…….none of which, unfortunately are recoverable. 

 

The deadline to claim refunds was July 22nd.  Refunds should be processed by Mid August.

 

Refunds not claimed are considered a welcome “donation” back to the league to help ensure LCBSA can continue to provide an outstanding youth sports experience at a very reasonable price for years to come.   Your Board of Directors have all agreed to “donate” their player’s registration as well.   LCBSA is a non-profit, so your donation may be tax deductible.    Clink the below link to access a letter that can be used for your tax filing

This has been a trying time for all of us.  Most importantly, I hope you and your families continue to remain safe and healthy and we can get back to playing LCBSA baseball & softball next season.
