5 Reasons To Play On A Social Sports Team If You're New In Town

When it comes to moving to a new city, there are surprises and adventures around every corner. It’s a wonderful and exciting time in one's life, but it's not all easy - especially making new friends and building a new network.

Luckily, most cities have adult social sports leagues so you can join up, find a new crew, and focus on having fun in your new place. Whether you're looking for something super social like kickball and cornhole, or want to get a little sweaty with volleyball or flag football, joining a social sports team can make your new city feel like home, and help you meet a lot of people in a short amount of time. 

CLUBWAKA has tons of social sports leagues starting this spring - Register now

5 reasons to join CLUBWAKA if you're new in town: 

  1. Play it out. If you are a new mover and signing up solo this season, we’ll match you up with other free agents and small groups so everyone has a team!
  2. Show up to league events and parties. You’ll have real-life play dates every week to meet other active people who share your interests. Social Sports = new friends.
  3. Bond with the team and host a move-in party in your new space.  Make an effort to start exploring your city and shoot an invite to your team to grab drinks or watch the game. Search events in your city like concerts in the park, fitness events, food and drink tastings and with your new team, you’ll automatically have a group to go with. You’ll get closer with your teammates over time and your new friends will start inviting you to stuff too.
  4. Volunteer to be league photographer for a night. If you’re the one snapping lots of pictures at the fields or bar, it’s super easy to get in touch with people later.  Just ask them to connect on Facebook.
  5. Volunteer to help with CLUBWAKA charity events. Every season, we support a local charity partner with fundraising and events. Make friends while making the world a better place? Double bonus!
