Highlight of the Week – All About The Glory

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“We only had 3 players for playoffs, but still wanted to show up and play. We threw down the gauntlet and wanted to play for glory!

So we challenged them to 3v6 and took to the sand. Our toes were numb and we initially went down 0-6. But did we give up? I think not. The three of us dug deep inside and mounted a glorious comeback, winning 21-17.

So… Never give up, even if you don’t have enough players. It’s all about the glory – not the scoresheet. Sandy balls fo’ life.”

-David, Sandy Balls, ZogSports Washington DC

People play ZogSports for the organized fun and the friendly competition.  Individuals of all walks of life come out each week with their friends – old and new – to experience the highlight of their week.  As an organization, we are so proud and grateful that we are the ones that get the chance to deliver these highlights.

We are also just as proud that our ZogSports referees are experiencing these same highlights with every shift they work.  It’s not often people say that they love their job, and we feel very fortunate to get to hear those words so frequently from our amazing, hardworking, and super fun staff.

Let’s reflect on one of our referee’s favorite moments as a ZogSports field team member.

“My favorite reffing moment had to be watching Matt from Red Balls & Vodka score a David Beckham like goal opening up the second half kickoff a few years back after asking for proper space. To this day, I have yet to see anyone score from distance to start the game, half, sudden death or change of possession after a goal. Can anyone replicate this feat?” -Steve, Soccer and Football Referee

ZogSports Makes A Difference – Charity Update Spring 2015


ZogSports was founded in the wake of 9/11, so giving back is a vital element of our organization.  Since our launch in 2002, we’ve donated over $2.7 million to hundreds of different charities.  When you play ZogSports, you’re contributing – we donate 10% of all net proceeds, 100% of Happy Hour bar contributions and 100% of net proceeds from ZSAANYC leagues to charities that you pick.

Last season, in NYC alone, we donated over $36,000 to over 150 different charities.  It’s always amazing to see the tremendous variety of causes that ZogSports teams choose to support, from small, local organizations like The Bronx Defenders to national, well-established charities like the American Heart Association.  Whatever charity your team selects to play for, you can enjoy the friendly competition and organized fun knowing that you’re making a difference somewhere in the world.

Here are the top 5 most selected charities from the Spring 2015 season:

ZogSports Shortlisted For The 2020 Olympics!

The news we’ve been waiting to hear for 13 years has finally arrived…kind of.

Zog in Olympic_Rings

It’s just been reported that eight sports have been shortlisted to be added for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and we’re so excited that two of these are sports that ZogSports offers leagues in: Softball and Bowling!  So now, if anyone tries to give you crap about you joining the softball team “just for the alcohol” or attempts to make the case that “bowling isn’t a real sport”, you can back yourself up with true, yet still shortlisted, data that “hey, if it’s played in the Olympics it’s legit!”

We’re also proud of some other top contenders that didn’t quite make the finalist list, but still deserve gold medals in our eyes: Flying Disc [that’s the same thing as Ultimate Frisbee, right?] and Football.

These sports are slated to be added to the 2020 games, which gives you 5 full years to join a league, perfect your skills, and earn yourself a spot on the USA team!

If you could add any sport to the Olympic Games, which sport would you add?
