Yucaipa approves local sports agreement for use of facilities.

On Jan. 11, the Yucaipa City Council approved and authorized City Manager Ray Casey to execute Facility Use Agreements  and administer the terms of the agreements between the city of Yucaipa and Yucaipa Valley Youth Soccer Organization, Spartans F.C. (football club), Yucaipa Valley American Little League, Yucaipa-Calimesa Amateur Softball Association, Yucaipa Junior All American Football and Cheer, Inc., Yucaipa Youth Basketball, Yucaipa Swim Team and San Canyon Water Polo Club for use of city and district facilities.

Several city of Yucaipa and Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District owned facilities and sports fields are being used by the different local organizations. The agreement clarifies operational procedures relative to the use of each facility or sports field by these organizations. It also makes clear the responsibilities of each party involved. City staff will continue to coordinate and/or schedule organizations’ use of city and district facilities and sports fields.

The new agreement will commence on Jan. 11 and expire Dec. 31, 2021.

Unfortunately, due to the drastic changes in programming, some organizations chose not to offer a fall season. The organizations that partook in a fall season offered instructional play without games or scrimmages and were offered at little to no costs. Due to the county and state restrictions in youth sports, the 2020 Facility Enhancement Fees were not collected.

Facility enhancement fees are designated for facility enhancements, repairs, maintenance and upgrades.
