This season we are proud to partner with the TJ-JL Foundation!  The TJ-JL Foundation started a golf tournament eight years ago with the intentions to raise money and awareness to help combat diabetes. After incredible success, they decided to create their own charitable foundation, and this website, TJJLFoundation.com which allows them to voice their mission to a much larger audience. Please help us support them this season!

Don't Just Get in the Game, Be Part of the Game! This league is currently looking for volunteers to help make this season a great one! If you’d like to take charge, have a say, and become more involved in your social sports experience, contact your league representative and get involved today. No matter what your talent is, we have a space for you!
