For more than 12 years, Metro Sports has given amateur and competitive players alike the chance to quench their thirst for the game with other co-ed teammates. Presided over by expert officials, teams play near the National Mall every spring, summer, and fall, making sure to avoid waking the kraken that lives in the reflecting pool.
While softball is an available adult co-ed league, Metro Sports offers more sports as well. Refereed soccer leagues face off during battles of thrilling breakaways and impassioned goaltending year-round, moving to an indoor turf field every winter. Volleyball seasons likewise divide between indoor and outdoor courts. Each metro-accessible game takes place at various locations in northwest D.C..
The summer sun is shining, the chickadees are chirping, and the Northern Virginia sky is a dazzling azure blue—SplashDown Waterpark was made for days like today. The 13-acre water park, lauded as one of the best places to cool off in the area by Northern Virginia Magazine, abounds with aquatic attractions, including two four-story water slides.
Inflatable tubes meander down the park's 770-foot lazy river, and youngsters frolic through watery obstacle courses. Over in the 25-meter lap pool, American Red Cross–certified instructors conduct private swim lessons, teaching students how to tread water and convince dolphins to carry them when that gets tiring. The park also features an array of eateries and concessions stands full of hamburgers, pizzas, and sugary funnel cakes.
United Social Sports brings recreational athletes together to socialize and showcase their hand-eye coordination. Free agents or team-sized groups register for the organization’s casual coed leagues dedicated to traditional sports such as softball and volleyball as well as carnival games such as cornhole and skee-ball. Each league hosts 6–8 weekly matches, which culminate in a final tournament and an end-of-season party—much like youth-sports leagues, but with postgame drink specials.
