Windsor-Essex’s first ever multi-sport, recreational league is now registering individuals and teams for fotball, soccer and dodgeball when their first season begins after Victoria Day. Fall sports include floor hockey, court volleyball and basketball.

The Rose City Sport & Social Club, a brand new creation by local, young entrepreneur Kyla Woodcock, offers non-competitive and co-ed sports leagues for adults 19+ along with tournaments and social events.

“We’re keen to connect our members to each other, and to support the organizations that are tackling important issues in this community, like retention of young talent,” Woodcock says.

“RCSSC represents an opportunity for adults to get out, relax, enjoy themselves and play.”

Woodcock is a longtime entrepreneur with a passion for sport and community and currently runs a very similar operation just up the 401. The Forest City Sport & Social Club in London operation offers floor hockey, basketball, dodgeball, volleyball, soccer, water polo, tennis, guitar lessons, yoga and a variety of other sports and social classes.

RCSSC plans to play sports on available fields and gyms including at schools, city parks and facilities, and privately owned lands. They say that some of their fields are lined with nets, others are marked using pylons and flags. All field and gym locations are within 20 minutes of downtown, on a bus route and have ample parking. RCSSC says exact locations are announced when schedules are posted.

Woodcock says that in addition, the RCSSC is also investing in the community by setting up partnerships with local businesses, hiring a Sports Coordinator and supporting the United Way of Windsor Essex’s GenNext program.

Registration for RCSSC’s “Sprummer” (spring/summer) league is open now and runs until May 15th.
