I've been playing sports my whole life! I was extremely competitive in high school, and I like to pretend that I've mellowed out a bit since then. Rec leagues are a huge part of my life now. I can't imagine not playing. Here are my 5 reasons why YOU should join a team.

    Being Part of Team!

    There is no feeling like being part of a team. That's one thing I do and will always miss about high school. Teams are like family. Playing rec league gives me that. I play with some of my best friends.

    It's a FUN workout

    Playing sports is an awesome way to get (or stay) in shape without having to go do the same gym routine every day.

    Gives you a night "out"

    If you're a mom, this is an awesome opportunity to get out of the house and hang with the girls without having to go to a bar.

    It's an excuse to drink

    Make new friends

    Like I mentioned before, I play with some of my best friends. These girls weren't my friends through high school, I met them playing rec league. It's a really great way to make friends, which can be a challenge as a busy adult.
