Mother Nature really put us through the ringer this Winter. Between a deep freeze that felt like it would never end and a full week of snow to kick off the month of May, we think we’ve all earned a little sunshine. Now that the sun’s out and sightings of the infamous shirtless-roller-blading-guitar-man are popping up in everyone’s social media, we also think (please oh please!) it’s safe to say that SUMMER. IS. HERE.
One thing we do know is that Edmonton summers are shorter than the amount of reps you can deadlift, which means we need to enjoy every minute of it. The best way to do that? Playing sports outside. Not only is it a great way to enjoy the sun, but it’s also a great way to get active and add to your already well-rounded fitness plan.
The Edmonton Sport & Social Club is Edmonton’s largest co-ed, adult-only sports league. Our motto is ‘Fun-First, Winning-Second’ because we believe in the social side of sport and the many benefits, physically and mentally, that playing sports provides. We offer a variety of skill levels for you to play, from Recreational to Competitive, so whether you’re new to the sport, fine-tuning your skills, or are a seasoned vet, there’s a place for everyone.
Are you over 35 years old? Congratulations! You qualify to play in our Legends 35+ League. This Summer, choose from Beach Volleyball, Slo-Pitch, and Floor Hockey (how about all three?) and get active with other adults who are similar in age, skill level, and mind-set.
Take it from one of our very own Legends, John, who plays with the Untouchaballs “I’ve been around a long time. Some might say too long. But that’s why I play in the Legends Floor Hockey League. So that I don’t have to just be a Legend in my own mind anymore. Honestly, the Legends Floor Hockey League is tailor-made for those of us that have maybe lost a step, maybe gained a pound, maybe take a little longer to recoup, and me… all of the above!”
