2017 Safe at Home Kickball Tournament
Benefiting Bridges to Independence (formerly the Arlington-Alexandria Coalition
for the Homeless)
is once again sponsoring a team created from Greek and Philhellene kickballers from
all over the DC Metro area to compete in a one-day kickball tournament that covers
all the bases -- fun, food, charity, and all-day KICKBALL competition -- now
in its 11th year! Last year saw us continue our undefeated streak from 2015 on our way our back-to-back championships -- not bad for a squad that doesn't play organized kickball
but once a year!
Saturday, August 5, 2017. Games start at 9:00 AM. Round robin
play followed by Playoffs. In previous years, the Championship Game has finished
around 3:30 PM.
