Bear Claw Tournament

CANCELLED - Bear Claw Tournament

LZBSA hopes you and your families are doing well given the state of affairs across the nation and around the world.  It's been an interesting spring with highs and lows as we determine the approach and juggle the possibilities of aligning a delayed house season with our annual post-season Bear Claw tournament.

With Phase 4's anticipated opening on June 26th, LZBSA is focused on starting our house league season in the hopes of salvaging some aspect of the baseball/softball season in July and August.  With that said, the LZBSA board has decided to cancel the Bear Claw All-Star tournament scheduled for July 8th-12th, dedicating field space to the now revised regular season.  We know this is disappointing and certainly appreciate your interest in playing in our tournament.

Any team who has previously registered will receive a 100% refund.

We will definitely be back next year and truly hope you will consider playing with us in 2021.

Thank you and stay safe!
