Generally, parents act as a taxi service for their kids to get to all of their extracurricular activities during the school year. This summer, Sisters Park & Recreation District (SPRD) felt it was time for adults to taxi themselves to an activity designed for them, that the whole family could enjoy. SPRD did just that this summer, offering two new adult sports leagues that have just wrapped up, crowning the first league champions in cornhole and co-ed softball.

The cornhole league started this summer on June 13 in partnership with The Landing Zone at Three Creeks Brewing Co.’s production facility. Ten teams participated, with over 25 adults having a great time throughout the season that ended on July 25 after an eight-team playoff.

Sisters Coffee Co. took home the championship.

The league was such a success that SPRD is in the process of planning a cornhole tournament in partnership with Three Creeks Brewing in mid-September.

After a few-year’s hiatus, softball is back in Sisters. The league included three teams, including an SPRD staff/board member/family team, Gregg’s Team and a “Free Agent” team that included various individuals that signed up to play.

SPRD offered a four-week season that ended with a single-elimination playoff. The Free Agents won the league, beating the SPRD team 15-10 in the championship game. The co-ed rec league is designed for players of all skill levels, and generally is more about having fun than competition.

SPRD looks forward to expanding this league and offering it every year.

Due to the feedback received by both leagues, SPRD is organizing another four-week co-ed rec softball league that will begin near the end of August.

Information on fall and winter programs will be available after August 15 at www.sistersrecreation.com, or in the fall/winter guide, available online and at various locations in Sisters Country.
