A Community Blog from Boondock Sports
Boondock Sports gives people plenty of opportunities to flex their “weekend warrior” muscle by attending one of our events or joining one of our leagues.
But now, we can bring the fun to you!
Some friendly competition makes special moments in your life even more fun and memorable. Here are some ways you can incorporate Boondock Sports into your next event.
1.Parties (Birthday, Bachelor/Bachelorette, etc.)
Whether it’s a kids birthday party or a grown-up gathering, sports competitions are perfect when everyone is in a celebratory mood. If you have a birthday that is during a warm-weather time of the year, organize a fun kickball or flag football game. For winter birthdays, a pick-up game of basketball gets the competitive juices flowing. For even more fun, if you have enough people to field four teams or more, we can arrange a mini tournament!
Nothing builds the cohesiveness of a team like working together to achieve a goal, fueled by some competition! A softball game is a timeless classic, and if you need to unleash some of that pent-up aggression, how about a game of dodgeball? Where else can you hurl objects at your co-workers and not have to take a trip to human resources after it?
Create a new tradition during that spring or summer outdoor wedding by letting us set up some backyard games! Speeches, toasts, and dancing is great, but create a memorable event for you guests by arranging a cornhole tournament, or just let people play casually. It’s sure to be a good time!
Of course, these are just some suggestions. The possibilities are nearly endless. Boondock Sports wants to help you create memorable events, if you have an idea, just reach out and we’ll work something out together!
Many adults have fond memories of playing youth sports as a child.
The excitement and camaraderie are lessons we learn on the ballfield and take with us into our adult years. Our parents liked that it got us out of the house for fresh air and exercise.
However, just because we are no longer children doesn’t mean that we cannot still enjoy recreational sports. We want to point out four benefits to joining an adult sports league.
1. Keeps Us Moving
In our busy lives, it can be hard to find time to exercise, but adult sports leagues are an easy way to get a couple hours of activity into your week. Of course, this depends on the activity – basketball is going to work up more of a sweat than cornhole, for example.
2. Widens Your Social Circle
It gets harder to meet people as we get older, especially ones with common interests. An adult sports league will naturally connect you with people that share a love of the particular activity that you’re signing up for. Uniting for a common goal of winning a game builds camaraderie, and many teams take part in postgame trips to a restaurant or bar to keep conversation and good times rolling away from the playing field.
3. Could Help You Get Ahead at the Office
Many adult sports league teams are fielded by companies. Joining one of these teams can connect you with people in your company that you may have otherwise not had the chance to meet. Many times, a supervisor or member of management will play on a team, get to know an employee/teammate, and promote that person.
4. Strengthens Your Mental Health
With so many obligations to family and work, it’s tough to forget that we all need a little “me time” every now and then. Signing up for an adult sports league will give you that outlet. Returning to an activity that you were successful at in your childhood could also provide a confidence boost if you can channel some of that skill and excel in that sport many years later.
