What we're about

MDA is all about sports—every sport—from popular ones like volleyball, tennis, softball, and soccer, to more obscure ones like parkour, bocce ball, and curling. During the warmer months we’re likely to play ultimate, sand volleyball, and a third sport at least every week; as well as bike, skate, and socialize.

Below are short films highlighting some of the many sports and activities you could eventually participate in:

During the colder months we’re all about skiing/snowboarding, XC skiing, ice climbing and skating; as well as indoor sports/activities such as volleyball, wallyball, whirlyball, go-karts, and skating.

But this group is also about much more then nonstop athletic activities (which, by the way, are almost always open to beginners); we go skydiving and hand gliding, take helicopter and small aircraft lessons, play poker, board, and video games, and socialize at meet ‘n greets, parties, and clubs.

My goal was to a create group centered not only on sports, but good times of all kinds. It’s basically one-stop shopping for almost all of your entertainment needs. We’ve been the largest sports group in MI for over a year but, with potentially cool people like you joining us, we hope to reach 2000 members in 2011.

Upcoming events (5+)

SATURDAY Coed Outdoor Soccer!

Soccer Soccer

This event copied from the former "Farmington Hills Coed Outdoor Soccer (https://www.meetup.com/Farmington-Hills-Coed-Soccer/)" Meetup group which is being consolidated back into MDA. Hopefully MDA members will continue to participate and enjoy this game which has been running for years. In MDA, unless one of the former organizers steps up, the game will be more "pick up" style without a specific host. But I expect that like some of the other sports, the regulars can easily help pull games together to have a fun experience for all. Please respect others by showing up if you RSVP YES, and showing up on time so games can be organized. -------- This game is for all skill levels. Attendees are allowed to bring two guests. Games Starts at 9:30 prompt. Please bring one (1) white and one (1) dark shirt. Rules: No tackle, no slide, no cursing. Depending on the attendance, we play 45 minutes each game and switch around.

play touch football!

Webb Elementary School

Are you ready for some football!?? A friendly, coed game of touch football. Great at football... perfect. New... that's fine too. We will get everyone involved. The only real skill you need is to count apples. :) We will pick captains and organize teams once people show up, please try to bring something light colored (or white or yellow) and something dark. Please try to be on time, we will meet from 10AM to warm up, and will try to pick teams to start playing by ~10:30AM. [if you are new and show up early and nobody is around, please don't worry... we'll be there!] We will plan to finish by ~12:30PM so that people can still watch the Lions game. (***This weekly game now extended beyond the football season, but we will keep playing at the same time***) We need a minimum of ~8 players to play. Please only RSVP YES if you are going to actually show up, everyone else is relying on your attendance so that we can actually have a game. If >20 players join, we may split into two games. If anyone has an extra ball, please bring it. If you have trouble finding the field or locating the group, please call or text me[masked]. -Randy P.S. It is best to park in back of Webb Elementary, the football field is behind the school. P.S.S. If you could please add a profile picture of yourself on MDA... this certainly isn't mandatory, but definitely helps others (myself included LOL) to identify you and remember your name!
