How: read below...
Oh hi there person reading this. My name's Ari. You should come play dodgeball with us. That's a fun game. Remember that from grade school? Yeah, apparently when you're an adult you're still allowed to do that. Who knew? Oh, and now we get to go to a bar afterward instead of back to math class. So there's that. Adulthood has its perks.
See, here's some photos of shenanigans:
Doesn't that look like those people are having good times? That could be you having good times! You're a people! And good times are the best kinds of times.
SO WHO ARE YOU?
So the deal is that we're the group in NYC that gets together to play dodgeball every week...because we are overgrown children. Sometimes old school rubber playground balls, sometimes little soft jello ones, sometimes some foam ones. We're not here to F you. That's why it's FREE for new folk. But we're more a community than anything (but how legit does our website look?!) and just a good group of people running around with a childhood sport...and then, you know, a bar after if that's your thing.
I WANT IN! BUT WHAT IF I'M BAD/SCARED?
We don't just throw you to wolves - we'll introduce you around, explain everything, and no experience or athleticism necessary! No one's gonna bully you or not want to play/hang out with you for being "bad" - no one cares about that...that's what a dick would do. And we're not dicks.
WHAT IF I'M LATE?
It's just dodgeball, relax. Come and go as you please. The earlier you get there, the more you play of course, but no worries.
WHAT ABOUT MY STUFF? WHAT DO I WEAR?
There are bathrooms to change in if you need to. Everyone leaves their stuff by the side of the court. Plenty come straight from work. Whatever you'd want to run around in is cool for clothes. You wanna come in your work suit? Rock on.
THIS IS AWESOME. IS THERE A LEAGUE?! I WANT MORE!
There is a full league that goes on too, if you're interested. Same deal - good or bad all welcome! More formal with teams and schedules and trophies and costume themes and karaoke and drink deals and all... More info here: www.sandlotsportsnyc.com/register , but any questions just lemme know!
Any questions, don't hesitate! We'll get back to you!
A firm embrace,
