Pitchers and catchers have been reporting. The Grapefruit and Cactus leagues will begin their exhibition games next week (the Nationals demonstrate their competitive ambitions by taking on the squad from Georgetown University on Feb. 28). Yes. Snow is falling even as I type this. Yes. The glaciers will be upon us by Friday. But these are but momentary meteorological distractions, because spring is on the way. We know this for certain because registration for the 16th Street J’s DC Spring Sports leagues is underway. The best news is that in the J’s co-ed softball league, we still have no policy regarding testing for HGH (last I checked there was also no testing in the co-ed outdoor soccer league either).
We’re in our 25th year of bringing people together to build a stronger community through recreation, and we have leagues for adults of all ages and skill levels! Join one of our basketball, softball, volleyball, and bowling leagues either with your friends or as an individual – teams are forming right now! Great discounts are available for seniors, college students, and 16th Street J Fitness Members, as well as for those who sign up before March 1!
