Youth Baseball Initiatives
The RiverDogs continue to commit resources to growing the games of baseball and softball in the Lowcountry both in the grassroots and in developmental levels. We strive to encourage young people and communities to participate in baseball- or softball-related activities, including formal leagues, events and casual forms of play. Most of all, we want to celebrate America's past time by having fun!
MUSC Children's Health Kids Club
The MUSC Children's Health Kids Club is an annual program available to all kids of the Lowcountry ages 12 and under. A kids club membership will give area youth special access and benefits at the RiverDogs games and the best part is it's absolutely free! Just fill out the form found below and send to the RiverDogs' Community Relations Department to start receiving exclusive membership benefits all season long!
Dogs With a Cause
Blackbaud Dogs with a Cause is an opportunity for select organizations in the Lowcountry to fundraise and create their own Awareness Night. They work with the RiverDogs Community Relations department to make the night their own unique experience that will aid in awareness and raise funds for their organization.
Reading Around the Bases
The RiverDogs and the Charleston County School District (CCSD) team up each season to promote literacy among second-graders in the Lowcountry! Find out more about the RiverDogs' Reading Program and details on upcoming Education Day games for school classes during the season.
