Underdog Presents: “Funcore” Leagues –
New for the Spring of 2013 Underdog proud to unveil “Funcore Kickball” Leagues in select locations. What does that mean? You still get great fields, T-Shirts, Team Pictures, a witty Underdog Umpire and everything else you have come to expect with Underdog. The difference is while scores will be kept during the game, “Funcore Kickball” leagues will have no weekly standings and no traditional playoff system. Instead, no matter how many runs you score or give up, your team will only be judged on certain characteristics to determine an ultimate champ of the league which will include:
And of course Dancing (but no loud music please!)
Instead of playoffs, teams will receive extra games at the end of the season and can request a matchup with a certain fun team the last week of the season. The top two teams as rated for fun will also square off to determine the Spirit champ of the league. The point of Funcore leagues is to bring a few locations back to the day when you played in your backyard or at a picnic and no one really cared what the score was and who won or lost…. You just wanted to play for an hour and have fun. If you have a work team or a group of friends who love playing kickball but hate feeling like you are letting someone down every time you check out the standings page, then we encourage you to give our new Backyard Leagues a try. What do you have to lose….nothing! Literally!!
Let us know if you like the idea and we'll gauge how many spots to make based on the interest. Funcore!!
Underdog is a great way to meet new people if you've just moved to town or are looking to do something new to do. When you register as an Indivdual or "Indy" your name is put on a list for that league and when enough people register we make an "Individual Team" and introduce you to a whole group of new people. No crazy captains to deal with and no shaking down your friends for their league fee money.
Have another friend or two who want to play with you as well? No problem. In your signup there will be a spot to enter their name(s) so that we can place you all on the same Individual Team.
