A different kind of sports league. Battlegrounds are single-sport experiences (and events) with a unique pickup sports design.
HOW IT WORKS
Battlegrounds focus on a single-sport but do not follow the traditional sports league model.
+ Teams are made at the field
+ Professional Instructors
+ No Playoffs
+ Kids help design the rules
+ Drop-in registration available
The style of play is "pickup." The way we used to play sports in the neighbourhood.
Battlegrounds are offered as single-day events and as multi-week leagues. You can join a league anytime.
Battlegrounds are offered for ages 7+. Each Battleground will have its specific age range listed in the registration.
We use indoor and outdoor facilties throughout the City to run our events and leagues. The specific location will be listed in registration for the Battleground.
WHO ARE COACHES
Battlegrounds are designed to allow kids to help co-design their experience and have as much free play as possible. There are no coaches. Every Battleground is run by trained Sandlot instructors who engage with the kids as "coaches," "officials," and "mentors."
There are no set teams. We make teams at the field depending on who is attending. Friends are often paired together, unless they want to compete against each other. Teams are designed to balance skill and ensure competitive play. We adjust teams when necessary.
The sport focus of Battlegrounds changes from season to season. Some examples of sports:
Capture the Flag
AGES 7 - 11
A game of baseball like you have never played before. Lighter bats. Lighter ball. Smaller field. Coach-pitch.
And home run "fences."
+ No baseball experience necessary
+ No gloves or equipment needed
+ Action-Packed games
+ No sitting
We offer two Wffle Ball seasons. Fall (Oct-Dec) and Spring (March-April)
