The athletics staff has been busy administering our Fall Leagues and planning engaging E-Sports activities for our residents.
From Fall Volleyball to Flag Football, our teams dedicate their time to providing world-class experiences and instilling the love of sports in our young athletes. Here is a recap of the Fall activities of the Athletics Division.
Fall Volleyball 2022:
Our Volleyball Playoffs were on November 5. We had a total of 280 participants, 78 more than in Fall 2021!
Fall Under the Light Flag Football 2022:
Our Flag Football Playoffs were held on November 13 after two weeks of postponement due to the weather! A huge thank you to the entire Community Services team that worked together to help make this event possible for our athletes!
This season we had a total of 487 participants, 30 more than in Fall 2021! Another change this year was that Athletics implemented subdivisions for each grade division. These subdivisions are separated into Competitive and Recreational teams. The competitive side was eligible to qualify for the National Tournament to be held in San Antonio in December.
Athletics hosted its second E-Sports event on October 26! This program attracted 20-25 teens to play NBA 2K23, Madden 23, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate! Participants enjoyed eating pizza, hanging out with friends, playing games, and dropping touchdowns and 3-pointers! Their feedback suggested that teens would enjoy more events like this in the future. Our Athletics team is already working on re-introducing teen programming for our residents.
The athletic season isn’t over yet! The Athletics Team is now turning its attention to Winter Basketball. Congratulations to the Athletics staff that made Volleyball, Flag Football, and E-Sports such a success, and best of luck with Basketball! Our Southlake athletes are lucky to have such a dedicated team.
