Kickball365, the largest competitive kickball organization in the United States, today announced the launch of its inaugural league in Atlanta, Georgia. The first season is set to begin Tuesday, June 12[more], which follows a successful independent season hosted by Atlanta Silverbacks Park. The Kickball365 league in Atlanta is the newest expansion of Kickball365’s multiple leagues around the country.
“We are excited about the creation of the Kickball365 Silverbacks Circuit League for the competitive players in Atlanta,” said Kickball365 CEO/Founder Matt Kemph. “We will give players the chance to play by our rules, and at a great location.”
The Silverbacks Kickball Circuit League will use Kickball365’s rulebook, designed for competitive kickball players looking for a fast style of play. The artificial turf fields at Atlanta Silverbacks Park allow players to wear cleats if they choose, giving players a unique footwear option. The facility is also equipped with an on-site concession stand that plans to run occasional food and beverage specials for kickball players.
“We are working with Scott Wheeler of the Atlanta Silverbacks to offer a superior kickball environment and a unique league,” says league official Brick Faucette. “We are excited to bring a competitive league to the area on Tuesday nights.” Current Atlanta Silverbacks Park coed soccer 7v7 players will be offered $5 off their kickball season fee, providing those already involved in the park’s activities with an added incentive.
The League will play on Tuesday nights, beginning June 5. The team registration deadline is May 25 for the inaugural season. The League will host end-of-season league parties, which players are invited and encouraged to attend. League members will also be notified about upcoming Kickball365 Circuit events. These are competitive kickball tournaments hosted in cities across the U.S. that are open to the general public. The top two teams of the Kickball365 Silverbacks Park will earn discounted qualification spots in the 2012 Circuit Cup Championship, taking place in November in New Orleans.
Kickball365 will also host a circuit tournament at Atlanta Silverbacks Park on June 16. Teams enrolled in the inaugural Silverbacks Kickball Circuit League will receive a 10% discount for this tournament. The champion of the tournament will receive an automatic bid to the 2012 Circuit Cup Championship in New Orleans.
