LOVES PARK, Ill. - The Jr. RiverHawks baseball
program will be holding tryouts for their fall 2012
and summer 2013 baseball teams from August 7-8 at
The tryouts will be from 5:30-8 p.m. on those
days. The fall season will run from mid-August
through late October with a total of 7-9 tournaments
per team. All tournaments will be local and have
minimal travel. The summer season will run from
June through August and also have 7-9 tournaments per
team and have minimal travel.
This year we are expanding our teams to three teams
and they will look as follows for the fall:
-15 U (incoming 14-year-olds), coached by Rockford
Christian Varsity Coach McClellan
-17 U (incoming 15, 16, 17 year-olds), coached by
-17 U (incoming 15, 16, 17 year-olds) coached by
The only change in the summer is that Coach Small
will be coaching a 16 U team, and coach Barrone's
team will be 17 U.
As always during the fall, we expect several players
to be committed to their respective high school
football teams. However, with the Jr. RiverHawks
playing games on Saturdays and Sundays, the coaches
feel they can work with football players'
schedules and football players are welcome to tryout.
If you have any more questions regarding the tryouts
or teams, please call the RiverHawks' office at
