It’s Opening Week!

Games start tomorrow night for Recesstime’s biggest league ever! With nearly 100 teams, it’s going to be hard to find a park that is not filled with happy kickballers. Which also means a lot of scheduling! We’re making the final tweaks now. The schedule will be released today. For now, watch the kickball page to find out which division your team will be playing in!
