ABOUT OUR BEAR CLAW!
Native Americans use symbols & designs to represent specific ideas or cultural expressions. The bear is a powerful guardian; physical strength & leadership! The bear symbolizes sweetness of life and introspection. The bear claw was used to summon the power of the animal. The bear tracks can signify strength and well being, leadership and authority.

Milwaukee Tool, DeWalt and Elfco are 2016 Bear Claw Sponsors!

ACADEMIC AND COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIPS
Posted with former players from rec ball and travel ball


I have said it for years but when winning, people focus on that aspect of a program or philosophy rather than the mission. Last week, I was very privileged to share a photo with former players - kids that say Coach, or Mr. Korbel. These are outstanding contributors to community, school and athletics - and not just baseball. As for the former players first graduating class of seniors, I know of 11 scholarships to these players for adacemic/community not to mention another 5 scholarships based on athletics. Obviously, academics won in a landslide and I am very proud.
