4th Annual Adult Sports Winter Lineup Released

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Chattanooga Sports Leagues has released its 4th Annual Adult Sports Winter lineup.  Over 1,400 players participate seasonally in a wide variety of sports and events including: Kickball, Soccer, Softball, Volleyball, Flag Football, Dodgeball, Basketball and Bar Olympics. 

On average, a typical Winter league spans 8-10 weeks, while the new mini leagues provide a condensed 5-6 week version.  Most leagues offer three different divisions: Social, Intermediate and Competitive; encouraging players of all skill levels to come compete and have fun. 

At the conclusion of the regular season, the top five teams in the Intermediate and Competitive divisions will compete in a one day postseason tournament.  While in the Social division, teams will divide up their rosters and play in a one game postseason “mixer” game. 

“It’s just a really unique way for area adults to get some exercise and meet new people during the Winter months,” said League Director, Maddie Brown.  “Players look forward to each week’s game.  It definitely breaks up the monotony of the work week.” 

Additionally, CSL now offers a New Sponsor Bar Program giving registered teams the ability to earn a sponsorship from area favorites like: Universal Joint, Jack Brown Burgers, Odd Story Brewery, Casual Pint, Tap House, Chattanooga Barley, Southside Social and more.  Once sponsored, teams are rewarded with free league shirts, discounted league fees, gift cards, food and drink deals, plus cool schwag.

The average player fee is $47, while the mini leagues start around $28 per player.  Registration will be open for the next 30 days and league play will begin after the New Year. 

As Ms. Brown puts it, “What else can you spend $6 a day on and have this much fun?” 

Teams and Individuals can register at www.playcsl.com, but space is limited and will sell out for some sports.

He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Saturday Funnies

You know that rattlesnakes, copperheads and water moccasins are deadly reptiles that we in the South must avoid at all costs but then again, snakes are part-and-parcel of the Sothern culture. Some years ago, before the Alabama football team was preparing to play Notre Dame, a Chicago sports writer asked a Crimson Tide player the bigger difference between the two college juggernauts ...
