The 88?x184? Mateflex court inside Benfield Sportscenter is a shape-shifter. One day, it might be a full-size soccer field ready for child or adult leagues. The next, it could be a baseball, field hockey, or lacrosse field. Or maybe it'll be split into several different volleyball and basketball courts, with one corner cordoned off for competitive I-spy tournaments. Whatever the sport, Benfield's staff can set up the indoor arena to meet the athletes' needs. Away from the arena, Benfield Sportscenter encompasses a 1,400-square-foot training area with exercise equipment, as well as a lobby with WiFi and a snack bar.
In addition to open sessions and leagues, the staff teaches a carefully designed child-development program for ages 3 to 5. The curriculum starts with a multi-sport class, then moves on to a tri-sport class, before finally placing kids in single-sport sessions. This encourages children to find their ideal sport, whether it's basketball, baseball, hockey, tennis, or lacrosse.
Join a co-ed team and partake in the classic playground game of pulverizing, with league members hurling rubber orbs at one another in a knockdown, drag-out battle for survival. Participants can register with friends to be placed on the same team, or they can simply sign up solo and expand their social networks. A team T-shirt will be provided, with kickoff and closing parties at local bars bookending the eight weeks of battle. Register for a fun and fitness-boosting bout of dodgeball with 4Ever Young Sports.
NAKID Social Sports mixes friendly competition with hanging out at the bar. Once a week, teams meet up to play games such as corn-hole, kickball, and softball. Then everyone heads to the bar to eat and drink. NAKID Social Sports also hosts three free parties per year, movie screenings, and other events.
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.
