Football in Charleston

Select Local Merchants

Rather than cheering on their alma mater’s team, Chucktown Alumni recreational sports leagues let school-proud players get into the game. Graduates form teams of up to 23 players, showing their school spirit by playing in their shared college or high school’s colors. During the 10-week flag-football season—composed of an eight-week regular season and a two-week tournament—teams vie for weekly supremacy in games strategically scheduled not to conflict with college football games. At the season’s close, officials dole out prizes to the winning clubs and players who sewed their jerseys into the most stylish patchwork capes.
