Every year the Clover Parks & Recreation Department fields a 10 and younger all-star team and a combined a 12 and younger all-star team with the York Parks & Recreation Department.
Last year, the Clover 10 and younger All-Star team lost its opening tournament game and defeated the York all-stars in the loser's bracket. They lost their next game.
The 12 and younger combined Clover/York All-Star team lost the opening game and fought its way through the loser's bracket, winning three games after the opening loss.
They continued to battle their way through the loser's bracket and eventually advanced to the championship game for a second place finish.
