Who We Are

Riverbend Sport & Social Club is Des Moines' first sport and social organization.  We are excited to provide the young adults of the metro area recreational sports opportunities and fun related social events.   With a motto of competition, connection, collaboration & compassion we are thrilled to provide sports leagues, social events, networking opportunities, and most importantly fundraising events and service projects that will directly give back to Des Moines and surrounding communities.  

I'm from the Des Moines area and moved away 10 years ago to pursue job, life, and social experience.  This summer, upon a trip back home to Des Moines, I realized there were no opportunities for young adults to enjoy a social sports atmosphere to connect them to the city in which they live.  


Katy Doughty - I grew up in southeast Iowa and spent lots of time in Des Moines growing up.  After taking a trip home to DSM for a family reunion in the summer of 2016, I realized very quickly the need for something to connect Des Moines' young professionals to their town.  And so, RBSSC was born!  I've lived in Denver, CO and Seattle, WA and have gained friendships by playing in leagues and going to social events through local sport & social clubs.  It's going to be an awesome adventure bringing the things that connected me to those cities and people to great city of Des Moines. 

Angela Melito - I am excited about the opportunities for RBSSC in the Des Moines and surrounding areas.  I have lived in northern California, Denver, CO, and the DC area and have found lifelong friends and comradery in each place by joining clubs just like RBSSC.  To feel connected to the people and the place in which you live is the best feeling and I understand the need for the young professionals of Des Moines to grab hold of their love for the awesome town in which they live. 

Logan Lauterbach - Logan joined the RBSSC crew in May 2018 as the City Wide Bags League grew to need a few more monitors and his role has grown ever since.  Logan moved to the Des Moines area in November 2017 after graduating from Graceland University and growing up in the Quad Cities.   Before joining the sport and social world with Riverbend Sport & Social Logan worked for Davenport Parks & Rec and enjoyed playing softball and soccer.  RBSSC provides community, friends, and fun to DSM and that is three of many reasons he loves being part of the RBSSC team!

Michael Buckley - Yes, he has bees! And it's the coolest thing ever.  If you are ever at Captain Roy's and see him, sans bee safety coat, ask him! Michael joined the RBSSC crew in May 2017 as the City Wide Bags League grew to need a few more monitors.  He is known and loved as being the RBSSC dude at all Captain Roy's leagues.  So in his off time from RBSSC he is seen roaming the halls at Meredith Corporation being the keeper of all things tech devices.  

Boone the Rufferee - Boone will be assisting Katy & Angela in league operations with tail wags and paw high fives!  You play with us, you'll get to see this Rufferee at fields, outdoor social events, and even hanging out at RBSSC service projects.  Be sure to give him a few ear scratches...he will love you forever!!

Scooby the Basketpawler - Scooby brings her RBSSC skills to the basketball court.  She will cross you over, hit a step back jay, and defensive slide right into your heart.  She's more of an office mascot so look for her hoop updates on the Riverbend Sport & Social Club Facebook page and on our website!! RIP December 2017
