The City of Victoria Parks & Recreation is bringing a fall adult slowpitch softball and kickball league for adults.  The leagues are tentatively scheduled to start playing the week of Oct. 4. Games will be played weekly at the Adult Softball Complex according to the following schedule (leagues include upper and lower divisions):

  • Men’s softball: Tuesdays and Thursdays (two leagues)
  • Coed softball: Mondays
  • Coed kickball: Wednesdays

Detailed schedules will be announced after registration closes.  Players are guaranteed eight games. The top four teams in each division will advance to the playoffs, and the top two teams will receive prizes.

HOW DO I REGISTER?

The registration fee is $300 for a team with a roster of up to 20 players. The registration deadline is Sept. 17, or players may register until Sept. 22 with a $25 late fee. To register, visit www.victoriatx.gov/registration or call Parks & Recreation at 361-485-3200. Even if you don't have a team you still have a chance to play in the tournament.  Residents who are not part of a team may contact Parks & Recreation to be added to the free-agent list. This does not guarantee placement on a team.

 THERE IS ALSO A COMPETITION FOR THE KIDS:

It's Victoria's Parks & Recreation's Punt, Pass, and Kick USA competition. According to Victoria Parks and Registration, registration for this event will remain open up to the day of the event, but participants are asked to register as soon as possible to help with scheduling. Walk-up registrants must bring a copy of the child’s birth certificate.

Punt Pass and Kick USA will be held on September 18th from 9 am to noon at Riverside Park at Riverside Stadium.
