Want to join a team or league but not sure your skills are good enough? If you are able to play softball or volleyball, there is another sport waiting for you. This is one of those sports you might have played in school but may haven't played much as an adult. That "sport" is kickball. I feel like kickball is the one sport I'm guaranteed to not strike out in.

I haven't seen many kickball leagues around Rockford. Kickball tournaments pop up here and there but I don't recall many weekly leagues. Byron Park District is about to change that.

An all-adult coed kickball league is launching in beautiful Byron, Illinois starting in June. Yes, it's a coed league. The league is also an "all about having a good time" league.

If you're way too intense or take leagues like this way too seriously, take a breathe and realize it's just for fun before signing up.

After your team is put together you can grab some kickball accessories like cleats, socks, and sweatbands here.
