 Very Important Notice

All these sports are great. But it’s also important to not get hurt playing because you were simply unprepared. It is one thing to get hurt in the action, but it is a whole other story to have to leave prematurely because you are dehydrated or you get a mean sunburn.

You can not prevent things such as this 100% of the time. However, it is your responsibility to take precautions to fight against the sun as well as lack of fluids. Bring some sunscreen if your skin calls for it and bring water no matter what. Stretch as well. Before and after.

Sports and fun may as well be the same word at times. The opportunity arises for those who wish to take the chance to play as well as actively participate in many other aspects of the game(s). If you are unfamiliar with the sports scene, do not be shy to introduce yourself to the scene. You may meet some great people, unseen opportunities, and memories that may just stick around for a long time.
