Two of the City of Fontana's sports programs have earned distinguished awards from the Southern California Municipal Athletic Federation (SCMAF).

Fontana was recognized at the Annual SCMAF Awards Recognition Banquet for the Dodgers Dreamfield No. 51 and the Aquatics Splash Ball Program.

“We are all very proud of this wonderful recognition and honored to share this accomplishment with our staff and partners involved in bringing these great facilities and programs to our residents and visitors,” said Garth Nelson, director of Fontana’s Community Services Department.

The 2019 Outstanding Recreational Facility award was given to Dodgers Dreamfield No. 51 at Jack Bulik Park, which opened in June, providing thousands of area youth with special needs the region’s first universally accessible baseball field. The SCMAF recognized the field for its excellence in construction and innovative design.

Also, the 2019 Innovative Sports Activity award went to the city's new aquatic program Splash Ball. This program is sponsored by the USA Water Polo program, bringing fitness, fun, self-esteem and water safety to the children of Fontana. Splash Ball was lauded by the SCMAF for providing a significant recreation program that encourages active and healthy lifestyles in the community.
