Bham Nowers – remember when you were the dominan kickball player in Middle School? Or how about, when you spent those lazy Saturdays on the University quad throwing the frisbee with a friend, and suddenly other students joined you and a game of ultimate broke out?

Here is your chance to re-live those glory days.

Registration is now open for the Go Kickball league in Birmingham and the Birmingham Women’s Ultimate  League.

Kickball in Birmingham – February 23 deadline

Registration for Birmingham’s GoKickball league opened in late January and closes on Monday, February 23 at 11:0pm. Register – HERE

Teams play Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6:30pm-9:30pm at Historic George Ward Park. The season lasts 7 weeks and there is a tournament.

The game is pretty much the same as the one you played when you were 11 years old – the big difference?

First – It’s not played on the school playground during recess. According to Birmingham Go Kickball there are 60-80 teams that participate in the league and between 900-1400 players. You can either form your own team or register as a free agent, so the league can help place you.

Second – Moe’s Original Bar B Que and Innisfree Irish Pub in the Lakeshore District offer food drink specials for kickballers on Wednesday & Thursday nights.

Not quite chocolate milk or juice boxes you got in Middle School – but a lot more fun!

Birmingham Women’s Ultimate League

Birmingham Ultimate Disc Association’s (BUDA) winter league season just ended last week, and won’t re-start until the summer.

To fill in that gap BUDA has launched a Birmingham Ultimate Women’s League.

Here is a description of the new league and details on registration from a BUDA Facebook post

“Sam Hill makes this announcement so much better than I can, so I’ll just quote her:

“I am so excited to announce that sign-ups for Birmingham’s first ever Women’s League are now live on BUDA’s league website:

Sign up at: Birmingham Women’s Ultimate League

The season will begin March 10 and will run for 8 weeks with 2 potential rain dates. We will play Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. at George Ward Park, on the baseball fields.

The league will have 4 teams with 1 game each week. There will be a 30- to 40-minute learning session before each game to help women of all levels learn the game and practice some skills! This is an adult league and is open to any woman 18 and up. Please reach out and spread the word to any woman you think may be interested.”

There is a $30 fee to play.

Summer League

Bham Now will let folks know when the BUDA Co-ed summer registration opens back up in the coming months.
