Highlight of the Week – Bucket List

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“After a few failed attempts in elementary school and high school (I always quit out of fear of not playing well enough and embarrassing myself), team sports have been on my bucket list.

After a few random pick-up games over the years, I realized if I didn’t organize something and get it on the books I was running from my fear, again. So, I organized a company team and signed up with Zog Sports. Yes, we played our first season and lost, but the team’s enthusiasm and support was inspiring. It was amazing! There was even a cheering section at some games. I went from no goals to goals and assisting and we wrapped up the season awarding every player for something. Everyone cheered for all efforts and improvement.

Well, we signed up for the next season and won the Championship. The whole experience has been pretty amazing. We’ve all met new people, developed discipline on many fronts, and just really had fun. While winning is fun, no matter what we go out there fired up every time and end the night feeling amazing. It’s been a great experience.

Highlight of the Week – A Very Zog Engagement

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“I started playing Zog volleyball in Hoboken during the Fall season of 2013, Debra and I had been dating for about 9 months. It is likely that watching me play volleyball came a distant 3rd to exploring some of Hoboken’s fine restaurants and getting to see her boyfriend, but Debra dutifully attended many Zog volleyball games. I feel safe in saying that she was the #1 Zog fan. She learned all of my teammates’ names so she could properly cheer for them and learned the volleyball vernacular. Throughout the next four seasons, Debra resumed her status as #1 fan by stepping up her cheer “prop” game. It started out with the Volley Llama poster. She took her creativity to a new level with the Cream of Wheat noise makers. Lastly, but not least, she brought pom-poms for last season’s playoffs. You could say Zog was a big part of our relationship…

So it should come as no surprise that the day I had chosen to propose (Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11th) I also had a volleyball game scheduled in Hoboken. Now I know that Debra is very understanding but I certainly didn’t want to push my luck… I e-mailed my team and told them I couldn’t make it (for only the 2nd time in 2+ years of Zog volleyball). Of course things don’t always go as planned… Our captain e-mailed back and said we only had 4 players coming and 1 of them was limping quite badly. It was the last game of the regular season and we needed a win or 2 to make the playoffs. I told them I would see what I could do…

Nov. 11th arrived and I had everything I needed (parental permission, a shiny ring and the courage to go through with the biggest decision of my life). I’ll spare you the lengthy details but we spent the day together and I made a concerted effort to keep Debra on her toes. Every detour we took she wondered if there was another surprise waiting or if it was just another decoy. We finally made our way onto the pier in Hoboken and I got down on my knee and asked her to marry me. It was 7:45 PM, we were newly engaged and she says to me “Wait, do you really have a volleyball game tonight?!”. It might not be the most romantic thing to do after you get engaged, but the game was at 8 and we hurried across town to the Boys and Girls Club. The first people to hear that we were engaged were my Zog teammates. One of my best friends is also my Zog teammate… two of my Jersey City teammates were on the opposing team that night… Jen the ref has known us for 2+ years and watched our relationship grow.. and of course my Hoboken team is full of new friends. It might sound weird but Debra and I both thought it was very “us” that the 1st people to know about our engagement were our Zog friends. We won the match 2-1 and clinched our playoff spot. The wedding is set for September 24th of this year. It was a great outcome all around.”

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.”

REFlections

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
