Clarington Renegades mission is to provide youth baseball players an opportunity to improve baseball skills through quality coaching and higher levels of competition. The Renegades strive to create a positive baseball experience for each player. Teams are composed of 10U through 18U players who love baseball and want to develop their skills and understanding of the game. Winning games, tournaments or championships is NOT the primary goal of the Renegades. Our teams strive to win by making maximum effort and competing with class. Player development and creating a quality baseball experience are our primary goal.
The number of games vary by team, however on average approximately 24-30 league games plus our playoffs and tournaments, so up to 40 games in total. The majority of league games are played as double headers on Saturdays and Sundays. Occasionally games are scheduled during the week.
The maximum charge per player is $1,600. Some teams may charge less, but it will not exceed $1,600 per player. In addition, each team generally holds fundraisers to offset fees as well. We will be launching a new sponsorship program this year that will benefit individual players directly.
Uniforms, Winter Training, Tournaments, Insurance & League Fees. Pretty much everything.
Yes, each team is open to do their own fundraising initiatives. The Clarington Renegades will also host a couple organizational fundraisers which will help offset administrative costs and a year-end banquet for the teams. Each team will also generally get their own sponsors.
The Clarington Renegades are a member of the Fergie Jenkins Showcase League, named after one of two Canadian baseball players in the Baseball of Hall of Fame.
Teams will generally consist of 12 players, but there is no specific number we look to keep for each team. Too many kids and it limits playing time. Not enough and the potential for injuries could cause a real issue in regard to having to pull kids up or have kids playing positions that are not conducive to their strengths or the program’s goals. As a coaching staff, we keep many things in mind when putting together each team in the program.
The answer is simple, NO! We do not require players to have a release from their current organization.
Pitch-count rules are in place to head off any temptation to over-tax a young arm. The Clarington Renegades use the MLB Pitch Smart Guidelines to protect our players. For more information you can visit https://www.mlb.com/pitch-smart/pitching-guidelines
The Clarington Renegades promotes a fair and objective team building process. The decision to choose a player is based on the coaching staff at each age group. Players will be evaluated based on their skills, ability and desire to play.
Yes. The Renegades holds annual age-group open tryouts for all new players and current players. All players are required to tryout annually
Ideally, we would like all players pre-registered for tryouts so we have an idea of who will be attending. However, walk ups are also accepted
Players will try out for the team, not specific positions. However, if there are specific positions a player is interested in or has significant experience in, please note that to the coaches at the tryout.
Players will play more than one position during the season. The primary goal of the Renegades is to develop overall baseball skills. Players will have an opportunity to work on their skills at any position they would like to learn.
Coaches will make cuts and notify players who make the team during tryouts. Once all teams are confirmed, the roster will be posted on our website.
An initial deposit or $200 will be due within 1 week of a player being picked for the team. An additional payment will be made in November and the balance by February 28. No refunds will be given for any reason, once fees are paid.
