Highlight of the Week – Love From NYC to SF

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“We both joined Zog Touch Football in NYC as free agents in January 2013 (I had never done football before, just volleyball).  We ended up on the same team and have played on a Zog team together every season since.  We moved to San Francisco a little over two years ago and are getting married in a few weeks at a vineyard in Sonoma!

You play ZogSports to make new friends, keep playing your favorite sports, give back, and experience a highlight every week.  Now it’s time to meet the people that help deliver those highlights.  Let’s go Behind the Scenes with Field Team Supervisors:

Meet Ron!

Ron is a Field Team Supervisor for NYC Basketball.

Z: How long have you been with ZogSports?

R: Been at Zog about a year and a half.

Z: Why do you love working for ZogSports?

R: I love working for ZogSports, because I love playing and teaching the game of basketball.  As a referee I am able to spread my knowledge and skills to help another player enjoy the game as much as I do, and Zog gives me the opportunity to do that.

Z: What’s the best team name you’ve come across while working for ZogSports?

R: Best team name to me was “I’m in love with the coco”.

Z: Do you have advice for the best pickup line to use at a ZogSports happy hour?

R: I don’t have a pickup line.  I just smile and close the deal….lol.

Z: What has been your ZogSports highlight?

R: My favorite Zog highlight was during a 4vs4 basketball game.  Both teams only had 4 players a piece and had played their heart of all games.  One player from team A got hurt so instead of team B continuing 4vs3 they decided to drop a player on their team to continue the gritty competition.  In the end the team with the 4 players won, but it was good to see that they did not take advantage and played a fair game.  To me, that was a great highlight moment.

Why I Zog – Shafiq’s Story

We know that ZogSports is the best way to meet new people in New York City, but we love to hear the evidence from first-time Zoggers!  Here’s Shafiq’s story:

“I moved to NYC a few months back, and my roommate at the time highly recommended ZogSports to me (He also wore many cool colored ZogSports’ t-shirts around the apartment). So being the kind of person who loves to hang out, play sports, and meet new people, I decided to check out the Zog website. Fortunately for me, I found the perfect Sport (Volleyball), on the perfect day (Sunday), in the perfect location (Brooklyn Bridge Park)! Pretty much signed up on the spot.

The first meet was pretty awesome as I got to meet most of the team! We weren’t totally on the same page yet, but going to a happy hour (recommended spot by Zog) after week 1 got us talking and helped create a strong camaraderie. What was really cool is that we started doing all sorts of events around game time from week to week including brunches, sticking around to play more volleyball, and even exploring Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg together! Many of us also hung out together and watched the 4th of July fireworks together thanks to a warm invitation from a teammate! From there we got better every week and learned to communicate on court more effectively!  We even started having some inside jokes (whose got middle?).

This was a phenomenal first time experience, and I made some awesome friends along the way! I plan on trying other Zog sports as well as keeping in touch with current teammates to see what other sports they will be participating in, as well as what they are up to around NYC!

We got playoffs coming up this weekend and hoping to win it all! Go “Orange is the new BLOCK”!”
