Watching athletes from around the world put their competitive hearts on full display this month in the Summer Olympics is an incomparable thrill.
But does it also make you miss your high school or college sports days?
The College Station Parks and Recreation Department can’t offer you a spot in the Olympics, but we can offer the spirit of competition through our adult recreational sports leagues.
While you’re not as young as you used to be, you can still be inspired by Olympic athletes. The oldest American athlete in Tokyo is Phillip Dutton, a 57-year-old equestrian competing in his seventh Olympics. In the 2016 Rio Games, he won bronze to become the oldest U.S. medalist since 1952.
Recreational sports create opportunities for fun, competition, and developing friendships for people of all ages. If you’re at least 18 years old, we encourage you to gather your friends and sign-up for our fall adult recreational leagues by Aug. 22. You don’t even have to be a College Station resident.
- Softball League (Sept. 7-Nov. 18) — $410/team
- Volleyball League (Sept. 7-Nov. 18) — $250/team
- Coed Kickball League (Sept. 8-Nov. 17) — $410/team
Unleash your inner Olympian!
