|Bradenton, FL (November 26, 2012)-The Manatee County Parks and Recreation Department’s Adult Co-ed Kickball League has grown significantly in the past few years. Created in the Fall of 2003, the league only consisted of nine teams. Since then, interest has sparked throughout the community capturing new teams and players from surrounding areas. In the Spring of 2010, a division was created at Lakewood Ranch Park catering to those participants who live out east. Within the last few years, we have consistently served over 25 teams each season.
As the league continues to grow, we are pleased to announce that a new division was created this Winter 2012-2013 season for our County and School Board Employees. With a record breaking 11 teams (220 total participants) for their first season, the County and School Board employees are enjoying themselves as they share an athletic interest with their peers in a social setting outside of the office.
With the addition of the County and School Board division, we have hit an all-time high of 41 participating teams this season. Games are played on Friday evenings at G.T. Bray and Lakewood Ranch Park. The regular season will end on December 21 and playoffs will be held on January 4 and 11. We are looking to add more officials to our staff as we continue to grow each season. For more information contact Ashley D’Arpino at 941-742-5926 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
