Blue Springs Parks and Recreation offers a variety of Adult Softball Leagues in the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Divisions include Men's, Women's, Church, and Coed. All leagues are sanctioned through ASA and are played at Young Park.
Here are four good reasons to join an adult sports league even if you don't consider yourself an athlete.
Reason #1: Break out of your mundane exercise routine.
Do you get tired of doing the same workout over and over again? Has the treadmill become the dreadmill? Break free! Sports like basketball, tennis, flag football and soccer offer an amazing cardio (aerobic) workout that can become a great addition or supplement to your current workouts. When you play a sport, you'll have so much fun that you won't think of your games or matches as exercise. And because you have a sport to play, you'll be inspired to get in better shape, which gives you more purpose and motivation to stick to a regular fitness routine. It's a win-win!
Reason #2: Learn (or hone) a new skill.
Is there a sport that you have always wanted to play but just never learned? Is your tennis serve getting rusty but practicing always ends up at the bottom of your to-do list? Whether it's golf, volleyball or bowling that interests you, joining a league will help you learn a new sport that you can enjoy for years to come. When you find an activity that you enjoy, your chances of sticking with it are higher, especially as you sharpen your skills and see yourself improving over time. Practice makes perfect!
Reason #3: Develop some new friendships.
Joining a recreational sports league is a great way to meet new people and spark new friendships. You'll find yourself in the company of others with whom you'll have at least one common interest—talk about an icebreaker! By playing with them once or twice a week, you are bound to develop some good relationships. If you're new in town or simply like to meet people, sports leagues are a fun and out-of-the-box way to expand your social network.
