Join the first-ever OTR Urban Kickball League now!

Get excited…the first-ever Over-the-Rhine Urban Kickball League is here, and it is being brought to you by UrbanCincy and Neon’s Unplugged. Sign-up between now and 9/24 at the early-bird rate and while room still exists. The fall season will run for six weeks through October and early November.

UrbanCincy is proud to announce the first Over-the-Rhine Urban Kickball League.  The league is open to all age levels and anyone interested in participating.  The fall 2010 season will be the first-ever and will feature a variety of special treats and benefits for those participating outside of the kickball fun.

UrbanCincy has partnered with Neon’s Unplugged to offer an official social spot after each game.  Players will be able to walk a short block-and-a-half from Cutter Playground (map) to Neon’s to enjoy its relaxed atmosphere including the newly opened upstairs lounge.

The league costs just $5 per person if you sign-up between now and Friday, September 24.  Anyone signing up after that point will have to pay $10 per person, and hope that there is room left in the league…so sign up now!  The small fee will cover everything you need and even get you a custom-designed, and locally produced, team shirt.

The teams will consist of 10-12 players each and must have a 50/50 split of men and women.  Individuals or teams can sign-up now by downloading the necessary forms, or by picking up a form at Neon’s Unplugged located at 208 E. 12th Street during their regular business hours.

The fall 2010 season will start at the beginning of October and run for six weeks.  Each team will have one game per week at 6pm on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  Interest has been high already, so be sure to sign-up early before prices increase and space in the league disappears.  Complete instructions on how to join are included on the sign-up forms.  If you are unable to download and print these forms, please visit Neon’s Unplugged to pick up a copy there.
