Q: What the heck does the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club do?
A: Good question. We organize co-ed sports leagues, tournaments and social outings for adults. Check out our list of sports leagues and see if anything interests you. Not typically the sporty type? Then social sports like dodgeball and kickball may be more up your alley.
Q: Are there annual fees to be a part of the Comox Valley Sports & Social Club?
A: Nope. You pay for what you play based on the league fees of the sport.
Q: Is there drop-in?
A: Sometimes. Unfortunately, drop-in is a bit of a league-killer and can be very frustrating for the person running it and those who show up. You could have anywhere from three to thirty people show up, and that sucks. The league model makes sure you have good, organized competition each and every week. Check the CVSSC home page and news page for possible drop-ins however.
Q: Can I play more than one sport?
A: Yes, of course. Some of our players play three sports a season, and we try to keep them on different days because of that.
Q: I haven't played (insert sport) in a long time, or at all. What's the competition like?
A: The competition is like a cross-section of the public. Some teams and players are quite good, some are very recreational, and most are somewhere in the middle, which makes for a lot of fun. We do our best to make sure all of the teams have fun, and if tiering makes sense, then that's what we do.
Q: I missed the sign-up deadline. Can I still play?
A: It's possible. Contact that Scott guy at the info to the right and he'll do his best to get you in the game. Sometimes room comes available for players at a pro-rated rate. And sometimes teams need emergency spares. You never know, unless you ask.
Q: How do I know when/where I play?
A: The schedule, standings, rules and everything are all posted right online for easy perusal and printing. If anything changes, we contact you -- so make sure we have your right contact info when you're registering!
Q: Any perks to the league outside of the sports?
A: Yeppers. We run around trying to get great deals for our players at local sponsor bars (cheap drinks/food), great t-shirt deals to outfit teams in uniforms (Aero-Art in Comox), and all sorts of prizing at the season-end wrap-up socials. And that's all besides the actual sports, which are a blast, and chance to meet and socialize with new people or old friends.
Q: What kind of a workout are the sports?
A: Some sports will make you sweat more than others (ultimate Frisbee, floor hockey, and soccer moreso than volleyball and kickball), but you also get out of it what you put into it. Dodgeball, for instance, can be a great workout for many, or you can take it easy and hang at the back.
