Highlight of the Week – An Easy Change

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“My first experience with the ZogSports Family was when I first moved to the US from Italy and I joined ZogSports in New York. It was a great place to meet new friends. I knew moving to Philly would be an easy change for me, because I was sure I would be able to meet new amazing people through ZogSports Philly that would soon become friends. And I was 100% right!”

-Roberta, Dive, ZogSports Philadelphia

Highlight of the Week – The Hawk Will Never Die

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“Our team looked forward to our dodgeball games every Thursday, but our highlight was definitely winning the championship game. While some of us began as strangers, our team became close over the weeks we played together and it was awesome to share our big win together. Besides bragging rights, our win donated money to the Kinney Center, a center for children with autism, at our alma mater, Saint Joseph’s University. We are looking forward to some new competition in kickball this spring!

Highlight of the Week -We Make Them Look Good

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“The benefit of playing softball on Sundays this fall was that my team would get to watch the Eagles games together after our games.  Nothing like starting Sunday mornings off at the bar with your teammates.  Better yet, our record made the Eagles look good.”

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

My highlight as a first-time Zogger this year was winning the Kickball Championship! There’s nothing better than having a fun night to look forward to during the long work week, spending time with your good friends and most importantly, giving back to the community for great causes. On behalf of my team, the Kick-Intartaglias, thank you ZogSports for this awesome opportunity in the city of brotherly love!

Highlight of the Week – Legends of the Hidden Zoggers

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

When I got the email this spring asking if I wanted to sign up for a Cornell alumni kickball team, I only joined with one other person. Even though it turns out I was correct in suspecting there were not enough alumni in Philly to fill a full team, our team of mishmash alumni are about to join together this fall for our third season! I love coming out every week to have some fun on the field and at the bar with a great group of new friends who have a true appreciation for 90s Nickelodeon game shows and accompanying 90s walk-up songs.”

Highlight of the Week – Who’s Got Spirit?

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“I’m the captain of the only kickball team that went completely winless last season. That may sound like a bad title to hold, but I actually couldn’t be happier! My teammates have said that playing those games was some of the most fun they have ever had, and honestly that’s all I want for them. Sure, we try to win, but fun comes first. And we got the Team Spirit award! This season, though, we won our first game! And we have custom shirts! And an instagram account! Follow us @n3rdstnerds for fun action shots and post-game interviews.”
