The Clarkston Youth Baseball Organization, the Riverdawgs, is an organization dedicated to providing Clarkston, Michigan area youth the opportunity to participate in the sport of baseball at the highest amateur level. We are dedicated to training the players and coaches involved in the organization in the fundamental aspects of the game and providing the highest level of competition possible. The emphasis of the organization is on the “team” and on the development of leadership skills in all of our players and coaches.
All Coaches, Players and Parents;
We hope all of you are safe and healthy during this time.
As we continue to navigate the rapidly changing landscape of baseball activities for the summer we are working hard to determine what the 2020 Riverdawg season will look like. We have been talking with our coaches on a regular basis trying to keep them up to date with how we see the most recent Governor's orders affecting our activities. We are also in constant contact with various field providers trying to rent fields and we are staying in touch with the NOBF regarding league play for the summer. While nothing is clear or certain at this point it does appear that we will be playing games this summer and that some Tournaments will be starting in Michigan in the coming few days.
We have recently provided our coaches with an activity checklist and guidelines to be used at all Riverdawg events. We have also developed a Release of Liability and Risk Assumption Agreement similar to what other Tournaments and Leagues will be using. We are asking that all parents review and sign this form no later than June 8, 2020. The form is available from our website in the Player Parent section. Please review the form and electronically sign as quickly as possible we want to make sure we can participate in all events as they start to happen.
The Clarkston Classic has been canceled for the 2020 season. Thank you so much for supporting The Clarkston Classic Tournament and we are looking forward to seeing you at the 2021 Clarkston Classic. The dates for 2021 tournament is April 24-26, 2021. Mark your calendars now.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns or suggestions, and please be safe.
