New Classes, Adult & Youth Sports
The Adult Coed Softball League held its City Championship game on September 6th. Both teams gave it their all but the El Segundo Commercial Pro came out on top and is our Summer 2018 City Champions. Throughout the season we had a total of 28 teams playing every weeknight with approximately 450 participants. There was a nice balance of competition this summer and the season was a great success overall.
Look out for the next adult sports championship games soon; Adult Basketball will be wrapping their season up in October while Adult Kickball and Soccer just “kicked” their seasons off. Missed out on this season? Don’t worry! Start talking to your friends and future teammates as we will have additional seasons of soccer and softball coming up after the New Year.
