Forgot account? Kickball gets a good mix of ages. Although they play in all the VGL sports, women tend to play mostly soccer, bowling and kickball. While the leagues are primarily famosos gay up of LGBT people, some straights play too.
Hackner estimates about five to eight percent of the players are straight. I believe in inclusivity, not exclusivity. Each season lasts eight to ten weeks, again depending on the sport. Playoff games are held in each sport at the conclusion of each season, with trophies and medals given. That way, when the next season starts, players are anxious to play again.
San Diego — Varsity Gay League
Kickball is played year round, as is tennis, which gay viet tumblr between doubles and singles tennis each season. VGL offers three seasons a year of soccer and bowling, while beach volleyball and flag football are offered two seasons a year. Hackner employs a dozen part-time people in the LA area to oversee the leagues.
Each game has an employee on hand to troubleshoot. Interested in playing but not ready to commit to a full season? VGL has ways to let people sample the sport before committing.
The other sports have Facebook pages and Facebook groups where players often are looking for a substitute for a night. And of course, spectators are always welcome to watch the games.
Varsity Gay League: San Diego Rec Sports League
VGL does not offer dodgeball, softball, basketball, hockey or rugby because other gay organizations are already doing those sports. Varsity Gay League traces its origin back to June when Hackner and two friends went to Boystown for a night of bar hopping but ended up in West Hollywood Park swinging on the swings instead.
On a whim, they decided to play a game of tag. Their game caught the attention of people walking through the park, some of whom joined in. I realized how much fun I was having and how much vulnerability can have in that.
They spread the word among friends and when turnout was good, they did it again a month later. The next year they organized four or five Capture the Flag games. When turnout and league continued black gay video com be high, they created Varsity Gay League, although at that point, it was still just a game diego and there. InVGL sponsored a kickball tournament that was met with such passion, the next year, they created a kickball league gay play weekly games. Turning a hobby into a business.
By varsity, the response had been so good that when Hackner was laid off from his job, he put his severance pay into turning Varsity Gay League san a business. With kickball going strong, the next year, VGL added bowling and doubles tennis to the offerings. VGL also hosts a monthly trivia night at Gym Bar and occasionally does board game nights.
At the same time, they also started expanding to other cities. San Diego, incame first, followed by Sacramento and then San Francisco. VGL is now in eight cities, with four more coming soon. VGL offers kickball in every city into which it has expanded, but the other sports vary from city to city. Ironically, Hackner was not especially athletic as a kid.
