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.

Students and teachers in close proximity to loaded firearms daily? Across this state, in middle schools alone, there are probably hundreds of student/teacher conflicts a day. What if a student got hold of gun in a struggle with ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: 2018 Ig Nobel Awards

The word ‘ignobel’ is rarely used because only a few among us know that it means "characterized by baseness, lowness, or meanness." About 30 years ago, a glorious group of great scholars took a literary hatchet to form the word into ‘ig nobel’ so it could be placed in the dictionary as a term that means “a satirical social criticism that identifies absurd research.” Think of ...
