New Intramural Sports League in Silver Spring

There's a new intramural sports league based in Silver Spring - JoeFerg Sports:

JoeFerg Sports fills Silver Spring's void of professional intramural sports leagues for non-professional athletes. These leagues offer a safe and fun environment for responsible adults who have the drive to compete. If you are young at heart and looking for a refreshing challenge, register today. Whether you have a team that is ready to play or whether you wish to join a team as an individual, there is a place for you in our leagues. Participants must be 21 or older for all sports.
This certainly fulfills a need that I've seen in Silver Spring. It's not that easy to go to Adams Morgan or the National Mall from Silver Spring to play Kickball after work. The MoCo Recreation Department had a league in the spring, at least according to their website. However, I'm not sure how anyone would know about it without a bit of digging.

Soccer, dodge ball, and kickball are all free of fees, so I may consider signing up for one of these (most likely kickball). Kickball games will be played at Cannon Road Park and Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Park.

Thanks to the Express for bringing this to my attention.

Nice! Thanks for the heads up...very handy. The league definitely fills a void but the $60 "free agent sign up fee" kind of sours things. I mean, what if I don't like my team? Can't we just shop around first and THEN decide if it's worth the money?

I think that might just be for certain sports, though. (At least for this year)

I think we should have a Silver Spring, Singular team for Kickball? Anyone else interested? I am!!

i'd love to have a post-work kickball league opportunity because yeah, commuting from the boonies of maryland back to my silver spring home does leave little time to make it in to DC.

but uh, right now, the games are on saturday mornings.

ummmm. might as well just go to the mall, which i already do.

also, from what i gather, there's no social component to this league (at least not organized) and i know how important that is. it's very.

The free agent fee has gone down to $20. I've registered along with 4 of my friends and we are now on a nice flag football team. Come out and watch us play!
