The Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis is ending baseball and softball programs in 2017
The Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis (BGCC) constantly evaluates programs and services offered to ensure they align with our mission to attract, continually engage, and inspire youth to realize their full potential through relevant enrichment programs. Partnerships and collaborations are central to the Club’s strategy to help stretch precious financial resources and avoid costly duplication of services.
BGCC’s Board of Directors assessed the current baseball and softball offerings and decided to reduce the Club’s programs, and partner with existing organizations.
BGCC is excited to announce that Corvallis Little League, Corvallis Lady Knights, and JBO will provide youth baseball and softball for Corvallis youth in grades 3rd – 8th.
The BGCC will continue to provide t-ball and coach pitch baseball for youth in K-2nd grade. (Season Starts in Mid May)
Youth in grades 3rd – 6th who wish to play baseball will be directed to Corvallis Little League (www.corvallislittleleague.com), and youth in grades 3rd – 8th who wish to play softball to Corvallis Little League or the Corvallis Lady Knights (www.corvallisladyknights.com) organizations.
Youth in grades 7th & 8th who wish to play in the Junior Baseball league (JBO) will be directed to the JBO Coordinators representing Corvallis High School (Ken Robblee at firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Crescent Valley High School (Ryan Starwalt at Ryan.Starwalt@corvallis.k12.or.us ).
BGCC will continue to provide co-ed flag football, volleyball, basketball, track and cheer. We believe youth sports are a positive way to develop skills in teamwork, good character and positive life skills. Additionally, the Club will continue to expand its focus and resources on academic enrichment and job readiness programs in its afterschool and summer programs that help build self sufficient and resilient future citizens.

Our goal in Athletics is to provide a safe, comprehensive, equitable, and fun sporting environment for all involved. The BGCC Athletics Department has the right to modify, add, or move players or teams at any time to align with our goal that creates quality programs.
We believe that all children should have the opportunity to participate in Boys & Girls programs. A limited number of partial scholarships are available to families who qualify for financial assistance.
