Players may register as single participants OR with a full team
SAVANNAH, GA – October 1, 2019 – Over a dozen teams will kick off Saturday, Oct. 19 for Family Promise of Greater Savannah’s first kickball tournament, “Kick Out Homelessness,” at the Allen E. Paulson Softball Complex, 7171 Skidaway Road.
This family-friendly kickball tournament invites the Savannah community to join in on the fun and cheer on their favorite teams. Teams will spend their day bunting, running bases, and tagging their way through the competition.
For those who wish to purchase lunch, the event will feature several of Savannah’s favorite food trucks, including Prowl, Kona Ice, C-Port Grubzzz, and 6 Gear Dog House. Spectators are welcome to bring coolers, and alcoholic beverages are permissible only for those over the age of 21.
Full teams (of 10 or more players) may register, or participants can register as single players. Family Promise will coordinate teams out of the individual registrants. All players must be over 21, and all teams must have a minimum of 10 players (teams are co-ed and must have at least three women per team). Registration costs $25 per person, and all proceeds will go to support Family Promise’s mission to end family homelessness in Savannah. All team captains should make sure they’re able to attend the team captain meeting from 6-7 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Family Promise Day Center, 126 Horizon Park, Savannah.
Registration opens at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, letting participants check-in, pick up their T-shirt, and team packets. The first kick-off is at 9:15 a.m. and games conclude at 4 p.m.
“The Kick Out Homelessness tournament is a fun way to bring the community together, raise awareness for the issue of homelessness in Savannah, and enjoy some outdoor exercise,” said Family Promise of Greater Savannah Executive Director Katrina Bostick. “We urge interested teams and individuals to register quickly so they don’t miss out on the festivities!”
Family Promise of Greater Savannah works with host congregations to reduce the number of families who are separated when they fall on difficult times and find themselves homeless. The organization has a strong track record in keeping families together, while offering support and resources toward long-term independence.
