Organized Sports Aren’t Just For Kids!

Author: Shannon Miller

When was the last time you played an organized sport?

Well, take a trip down memory lane and think about a sport that you really enjoyed playing.  Think about all the reasons that you enjoyed being a part of a team.  Guess what?  Your sports-playing days aren’t over!

If you’re nostalgic for that part of your childhood, do some research to find out about your community’s sports leagues.

Some popular sports leagues are:

  • Kickball
  • Flag football
  • Soccer
  • Softball
  • Tennis

Consider all the benefits from joining a sports league as an adult:

  • We all know that exercise is important for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Sports are a great and enjoyable way to make exercise a regular part of your week.  And when you are a member of a team, you have built-in accountability partners.
  • Playing on a sports team is a good stress-reliever.  While you’re out on the field/court, you can hush your worries about work/kids/finances – and just focus on the game going on around you.
  • Community sports leagues provide a unique way to spend time with friends.  Rather than dinner or play dates, you’re able to do something different!  Coming up with a team name is always a bonding moment, and the team shirts will make for lasting memories!
  • If you have kids on sports teams, you probably spend a lot of time watching practices and Saturday morning games.  If you join a team, it gives your kids a chance to see you out there!  This could be a great way to bond with your kids, while also setting a good example of sportsmanship.
TIP: If you’re convinced that your glory days aren’t over, look into what your community has to offer!
