Club Sport is made up of mainly young, active professionals looking to get out and enjoy some friendly competition or exciting social events. Ages range from 18 to 60, with most of our participants in their 20's and 30's. People from all walks of life and professions are represented in the Club, bound by the common interest of playing sports and staying active.
You must be 18 to play in any Club Sport league. However, since many Club Sport events include alcohol, the age minimum is 21 for these events.
YES!!! If you are new to the area or just looking to expand your horizons, Club Sport is an excellent, low pressure way to meet some great people. All Club Sport functions offer a friendly and safe atmosphere in which to interact using the desire to play sports as a common interest. In fact, a number of Club Sport members have met their perfect match or best friends right there on the field. More than one on field proposal has taken place at TBCS games.
Club Sport offers leagues in soccer, softball, flag football, golf, basketball, kickball, volleyball, cornhole, boot camp, paddleboard, bowling and tennis. We also do a series of sand dodgeball tournaments and poker tournaments plus certain other "unique" single day sports (putt putt for example). We offer single sex and coed sports, depending on the league. We are always looking for new sport and leagues that would be popular among our members, so if you have any ideas...let us know!
Club Sport advertises its sports based on a number of skill levels. Play at whatever level is comfortable for you, but remember, it's all for fun!! This is a general classification and may vary depending on the league.
REC: just for fun, little or no league experience, less serious players
INTER: athletic and/or has previous league experience, moderately competitive
COMP: very experienced, skilled players. more serious players and teams
OPEN: only one division offered, mixture of players and skill levels will be encountered
Club Sport specializes in finding teams for individuals. Just sign up as an individual and we'll work to find a spot for you either on an existing team or if we have enough individuals, we'll make a new team. Many of our long time players started out in Club Sport as individuals placed on teams. But make sure to sign up early to guarantee a spot on a team. As a free agent, we'll contact you via email 3-4 days before the league starts with your first game time, team information, and other details.
In the rare event we do not have room to place you on a team, we'll keep your name on a list if a spot opens up or for the following season. Plus, we do not charge the league fee or deposit your check until we actually place you on a team.
Go ahead and submit what you have and let us know you need some players. We'll usually have a list of individuals looking to get on a team and we'll fill out your team for you.
Becoming a member of Club Sport is an excellent idea if you plan on playing in a number of leagues. Membership is $50 for the first year and $35 a year to renew (A year of membership is considered good for 4 seasons of play). With membership you get $10 off every league you play and discounts on our outings and events. Plus, you get a TBCS member tee shirt and discounts at local merchants and establishments. Since most of our leagues play 4 seasons a year, if you plan on playing year round pays for your membership renewal each year. Just playing numerous seasons with Club Sport does NOT automatically make you a member. You can easily renew your membership online here.
No, you do not have to be a Club Sport member to play in the leagues or join us for events. However, you will pay the non-member fee, which is usually $10 higher for most leagues. BTW, just playing in a league does not make you a Club Sport member.
You can sign up and pay as a team by using our team payment. This consists of ONE PAYMENT submitted before the league signup deadline. This reserves your place in the league and all the spots on your team. When paying for a team this ensures that Club Sport will not add any individuals to your team. This is the only way to guarantee this. The team payment is a price assuming everyone on the roster is a Club Sport member. You must add $10 for each player that is not a Club Sport member. For example, if the team price is $500 and your team consists of 11 non-members and 3 members your cost would be $610 ($500 plus $10 x 11 non-members = $610). Also, with a team payment any player added during the season is just $10. If your team is making a team payment, after the first week members may only add to the team for no charge by contacting the Club Sport office prior to game day. Any additions made at the field to rosters with team payments will be $10 a player, regardless of membership status. If you need help collecting money from your team, PayPal is a great tool - learn more here.
YES! Just because your captain turned in a roster does not mean you are registered for the league. You must sign up and pay by the deadline to guarantee your spot on the team. The only way the captain can reserve your spot is if they pay for you, either individually or as a team payment.
NO, unless your captain has paid a team payment and told you that you are on the team. To be sure, go ahead and send in your registration and we'll let you know if there are any problems getting on your old team.
There are a number of ways to sign up and pay. The easiest is online on our secure registration page. Just choose what league or leagues your are signing up for, enter your personal information, and submit your credit card info. We'll contact you via email 3-4 days before the league starts with your first game time, team information, and other details.
You can also sign up and pay at our happy hours. Look on our events page on the web site for the next happy hour. Or you can fill our a registration page and fax it in (877-749-8749) or mail in a payment. Plus, you can bring your payment out to one of our leagues, you just cannot pay the first night of the league without incurring a late fee.
If you don't register and pay by the deadline, you may not get on a team of your choosing, or get on a team at all depending on availability. Plus, if you do not pay until the first game you will incur a $10 late fee.
No - we are first come, first serve. Many of our leagues sell out BEFORE the deadline. Sign up early as possible to guarantee your spot.
Club Sport also offers other events and outing to keep you busy. We have events such as bowling nights, kickball and putt-putt tournaments, baseball and hockey game outings, happy hours, and trips. We have gone to Pleasure Island on a bus trip, out west for a week-long ski trip, a boat trip to Key West, and on kayak outings.
Once you pay your league fee, everything else is included...no more hidden fees. Most leagues include 7 regular season games plus everyone makes a tournament at the end. The tournament champs get prizes. Leagues include paid referees and everyone gets a team t-shirt (excluding volleyball & golf). Standing, stats, and schedules are kept up-to-date online at www.tampabayclubsport.com.
Being a captain of a team entails a number of responsibilities. Basically acting as a representative for your team on the field and with the league office. You can see a list of responsibilities online here.
YES! The league champion prize varies from season to season. In the past we have given out long sleeve tees, sweatshirts, ball caps, floppy hats, soft sided coolers, water bottle holders, folding sports chairs, duffle bags, and more! Got any ideas for a championship prize? Let us know! PLUS, all league champions drink for free at our championship party following each season.
Do not assume the games are cancelled if it is raining where you are. Call the Club Sport rainout number at 877-820-2582 (ext 1) to see if your game is rained out. We try our best to get games in and may wait until closer to game time to cancel a game. And please remember, sometimes game cancellation is out of our control. We use a number of city fields where the city will close the field due to the weather, even though you may think it is playable. Check out more weather and rainout information here.
You can find links to all league rules here.
