THE DAWGS ADVANTAGE

The Okotoks Dawgs Academy was established in 2007 to provide high-level players with the opportunity to realize their dreams of playing baseball at the collegiate or professional level. The Academy program was born out of the same vision as was used in creating the Calgary Dawgs youth program back in 1995-2001. Since 1995 over 40 players have been drafted or signed by Major League organizations, many are still playing professionally today. Over 180 Dawgs have played at the collegiate level, with many now embarked in further studies or successful careers. The Academy program is extremely proud of the players that have come through the program and excited to provide new players, every year, with the opportunity to go on and become college or professional athletes.
