San Diego Social Leagues is a popular recreational sports league that offers a multitude of sports, including basketball, baseball, volleyball, flag football, and even kickball! Signing up simply includes creating a profile with your physical information, a small paragraph about yourself, and a profile picture. Once registered, you gain access to countless leagues that are operating all around San Diego County. If you have a team already organized, you can register it in your desired sport, and be matched with other teams playing in that league. In addition to social sports leagues, you can also create corporate teams with fellow co-workers, and compete against other local businesses. For those that want that extra edge in their athletic performance, San Diego Social Leagues offers a boot camp that specializes in athletic and strength training, and is offered in personal or group sessions.

Nic Pollino, a member on a local San Diego Softball team said, “Playing adult league Rec sports makes you feel like a kid again. Once a week you can get out there and forget about the work week and just have some fun with your buds. You can’t really teach it to be honest”. This was after him and his team celebrated winning their league championship. His team picture shows them all grinning ear to ear holding their trophy. Being an adult shouldn’t stop you from continuing to pursue your passion of sports. There are plenty of opportunities to get connected with your community and continue to compete. All you have to do is show up and give it your all, the rest takes care of itself.
