    I've been trying to find something fun this summer to join. I saw the flag football which sounds fun but their website doesn't have much info on it. Like fees/location/start date at least that I could find. I was thinking about joining the tennis club too. I'm tempted to try volleyball but I hated it when I was in high school so I might leave that until next winter lol. Are there any other good ones?

    I checked out the rugby thing and having never played reading about the sport and injuries kind of freaks me out lol. I don't want to dislocate something and not be able to cycle or do the gym. So I think I'm settled on the gay tennis club and gay flag football. Anyone belong to either of those?

    All sports come with the possibility of injury. Some more than others. Rugby is a contact sport. Hence probability of an injury is more. Same for Hockey, Soccer.. etc

    Ya of course. I really hurt myself cycling not long ago but I think what bothers me about rugby is that it sounds really common. It looks fun but things don't pop back into place as quickly as they did at 18 so I don't want to tempt fate. lol

    I'm part of the flag football league i can tell you we are much better than the soccer leagues having friends play both! our fees are only 70 bucks a season and we played on professional artificial turf fields at cherry beach sports complex last season. our league's also quickly growing and we have a very high satisfaction rate icon_smile.gif

    I seem to remember a friend of mine being part of a softball league. I'll have to go hunting for the name of it.

    It can happen, yes, and you need to know that it is a possibility in any contact sport. It's actually rarer in rugby than it is in, say, lacrosse, though.

    Cool...sounds really good. When do they usually start? I'm really looking forward to it..trying to convince some friends to go so I know people but they just all gave me blank stares like I was crazy for asking.

    injuries happen mostly because of bad technique, followed by bad playing conditions, then followed by you hesitating in mid-action.

    raise your concerns to the coaching staff, they can help you with injury preventative measures and get you ready to play, safely; and LEARN to play properly.
