Rec Leagues

Recommended Posts

Anybody play in any good rec leagues, and where?

I used to drive around looking for games in the summers. The HS gym is a good place to start, they sometimes open it up on weekends or evenings or really super early in the mornings.

Anybody try any YMCAs?

I have a buddy playing UltimateHoops outta Bloomington. It's a wild setup. I don't know what the entry fee is but they write stories about the games, have a salary cap and salaries assigned to players, keep stats online, shoot pictures and video, it's nuts. My buddy is playing and having a heck of a time. I was worried that the competition would be a bunch of D3 and Juco players but its mostly run of the mill guys with a few former collegiates playing out their unlived fantasies against Average Joe Jock. We're going to try to set up our own team this winter.

Otherwise I will have to scratch the itch some other way. I need to get back in shape and lose a few pounds and this seems like a nice way.

A few buddies of mine play at the Apple Valley community center quite a bit. They're in a league there. There is also just open gym times through out the week with a lot of pick up games to get in on.

I play in 2 leagues. Sunday night in Becker, and Tuesdays in Cambridge. Both should be starting in a month or so. Cambridge league stinks but the Becker league has some real good players. I also used to play Mon-Wed-Fri at the Elk River High School from 5:45am to 7:30am. Decent play, mostly guys go there to get in shape.

      15-23 inches in most areas  Don’t drive through the narrows on blue headed towards little blue you will sink your truck.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
