Teen & Adult Leagues

Kickball
This co-ed league is played like the elementary school game you remember - the one with the big red playground ball.  It's an easy game that is open to all skill levels.  Even YOU can be a kickball superstar!

Ultimate Frisbee – Individual Registrations
Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate is played by two seven player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field similar to football.  The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone.  Teams of 7 participants’ minimum, 14 participants’ maximum per team. 

Spikeball
Spikeball is an original sport that combines the teamwork of volleyball, the hand-eye coordination of four square, and the physicality of a cardio workout. The two-on-two game is played with a small rubber ball and an elastic net stretched tight over a plastic rim.
