The beautiful weather in Nassau, Bahamas lends itself to providing a great opportunity for year-round sports on the islands. Based on this important factor, the community of Nassau offers a wide variety of organized sports leagues that are suitable for both Kids and adults. These leagues are offered above and beyond those offered by local high schools and universities.
For the Kids
Two of the most prominent sports programs offered for the kids of all ages are Junior League Baseball and Youth Soccer. The Junior Baseball program offers a wide range of opportunities starting with tee ball for ages 4-6. The next level is “coach pitching” leagues for kids in the 7-8 years of age range. Then it’s on to Little Leagues (Minors and Majors), which takes kids up through age 12 based on certain restrictions. Advanced levels include Junior ball (Pony League) and Senior ball, which would be comparable to American Legion.
Soccer has quickly become one of the island’s favorite sorts. The Nassau Youth Soccer leagues start taking kids from ages 2-3 all the way up through teenage years. Kids are taught the skills needed to play the game in order to prepare them for well-organized, high profile leagues as they get older.
For the Adults
Anyone who has trouble finding organized adult sport leagues in Nassau is simply not trying. The local authorities are currently offering leagues in such popular sports as soccer, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball (Beach and Indoor), tennis, baseball, softball and yes, hockey.
At the current time, baseball, softball and beach volleyball are the most popular sports in Nassau County. Amateur baseball leagues cater to players of all levels and ages, including senior leagues for the 35 and over crowd that wants to stay active. Year round softball leagues for all divisions are also prominent. The most popular leagues are Men’s leagues for levels A-D, women’s softball leagues (both slow and fast pitch), mixed leagues and leagues for seniors who still have skills. Beach volley ball is one of the most popular sports because it is played on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Leagues are organized year-round for both men and women.
For anyone interested in joining a sports league, they can contact the Nassau County Department of Parks and Recreation. They will be more than happy to point willing participants to the right place where they can enjoy first class recreation in a first class environment.
