2022 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 15th edition, back from a two year pandemic-related hiatus!
The 2019 tournament (the last one which was held) saw us come from behind in the Championship game in dramatic fashion to secure our fourth championship in five years -- not bad for a squad that doesn't play organized kickball
but once a year!
In addition, there will be a live DJ, food trucks, and an opportunity to meet new people and expand your networks. Bridges to Independence Kickball Tournament has brought together families, companies, faith-based groups, and volunteers for friendly competition and networking while supporting a great cause. All proceeds from the event will help families experiencing homelessness, housing instability, and systemic poverty.
Saturday, August 6, 2022. Games start at 9:00 AM. Round robin
play followed by Playoffs. In previous years, the Championship Game has finished
around 3:00 PM.
