Remember elementary school, when recess was the greatest thing to ever happen to you? It was almost always the highlight of the day. There were certain games that were staples of our recess days, one of which was most definitely kickball.
Wouldn’t it be cool to dabble in a little kickball action as an adult? Lucky for us, there are adult leagues around the Metro Detroit area! Listed below are a few options to bring back the great childhood memories of kickball.
Stay & Play Social Club Detroit offers fall kickball leagues at Rosie’s Park in Madison Heights. Leagues are currently available for Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Teams are coed and made up of six men and four women playing at a time. It costs $480 to register a team, and includes a maximum of 14 shirts provided by SPSC Detroit. The regular season lasts six weeks, and qualifying teams will participate in the playoffs.
Liberty Park of America in Sterling Heights recently started its outdoor fall kickball league, but indoor kickball starts near the end of October. Games will be played inside of Liberty Park’s dome. As of press time, registration is still to be announced, but be on the lookout for it to open up around the middle of September. Get a team of buddies together and after your kickball game, head to the Dugout Bar for an after-game brew or two.
Oakland Yard Athletics in Waterford offers indoor kickball as well. Leagues run on Tuesdays starting on Oct. 27. Teams play 10 games during the season, with each game lasting roughly one hour. Leagues are coed and each team plays with 10 players at a time. Registration costs $545, and the whole amount is due as a deposit – so collect from your teammates early!
Come Play Detroit is another option to keep in mind in the future, though registration is currently closed for the upcoming season.
It is not as hard as you may have initially thought to relive your childhood memories. Although, we’re adults now and a lot of us don’t quite have the energy or ability to recover from soreness like we used to. Just kidding, go have fun.
