SEED LISTING AND GROUPS





CAN Charity Home Run Challenge:

This year, we’re putting on a charity home run derby, to benefit Volo City Kids Foundation.  Volo City Kids does great work for inner city kids in DC, providing free food and sports and teaching great lessons like teamwork and healthy habits.

The Challenge will take place on Saturday evening and Sunday midday, so plenty of chances to try your hand at the top spot.

$10 entry to play, 2 minutes to hit as many HRs as you can.

The winners will get free tournament entry next year!

And feel free to donate to help out the kids even if you don’t hit bombs.  Volo City will be there helping out, signing people up, taking donations, etc.

Sign up at the field, or ahead of time by paying your $10 here.

 

Donate Your Old Equipment!

CAN is partnering with Leveling the Playing Field to run a collection drive on the first weekend (8/12 & 13) of the softball tournament.  LPF collects donated (used and new) sports equipment and redistributes it to low-income kids throughout the DMV.  All donations benefit needy schools, after school programs, and athletic leagues looking to engage their students in the benefits of youth sports participation.  LPF relies on equipment donations, so clean out your garages and basements of your old balls, bats, gloves – or even equipment from other sports – so that underprivileged kids are able to enjoy them! 


Gluten free/Veggie Options: 

If you have any dietary restrictions, please make sure to let your coach know so your name is properly checked during tournament roster submissions.  If you have any questions, please contact Ashley (ashley@dcalum.org).
