General KABOOM FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is "Kaboom"?

 

Kaboom Sports & Social organizes adult sports leagues, social events, and other fun and recreational activities. It has been in operation since 2012 and has thousands of league participants annually in the Pensacola area. It is part of a larger Sports & Social network called Club Sport. They serve locations in Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Pensacola, Miami, and Ft. Lauderdale (www.MyClubSport.com). 

 

Who's in the Club?

 

Kaboom is made up of mainly young, active professionals looking to get out and enjoy some friendly competition or exciting social events. Ages range from 21 to 60, with most of our participants in their 20's and 30's. People from all walks of life and professions are represented in the Club, bound by the common interest of playing sports and staying active.

 

How old do I have to be?

 

You must be 21 to play in any Kaboom league. However, since many events include alcohol, the age minimum is 21 for these events.

 

Will I meet people?

 

YES!!! If you are new to the area or just looking to expand your horizons, Kaboom is an excellent, low pressure way to meet some great people. All club functions offer a friendly and safe atmosphere in which to interact using the desire to play sports as a common interest. In fact, a number of Kaboom members have met their perfect match or best friends right there on the field. 

 

What sports do you offer?

 

Kaboom has core sports of volleyball, kickball, bowling & cornhole. However look for other sports such as soccer, softball, flag football, bar games, and more to come soon. We are always looking for new sport and leagues that would be popular among our members, so if you have any ideas...let us know!

 

What is the difference in advertised skill levels?

 

Some times Kaboom advertises its sports based on a number of skill levels. Play at whatever level is comfortable for you, but remember, it's all for fun!! This is a general classification and may vary depending on the league.

 

    REC: just for fun, little or no league experience, less serious players

    INTER: athletic and/or has previous league experience, moderately competitive

    COMP: very experienced, skilled players. more serious players and teams

    OPEN: only one division offered, mixture of players and skill levels will be encountered

 

I don't know anyone, how can I get on a team?

 

Kaboom specializes in finding teams for individuals. Just sign up as an individual and we'll work to find a spot for you either on an existing team or if we have enough individuals, we'll make a new team. Many of our long time players started out in Kaboom as individuals placed on teams. But make sure to sign up early to guarantee a spot on a team. As a free agent, we'll contact you via email 3-4 days before the league starts with your first game time, team information, and other details.

 

Kaboom places, to the best of its ability, indivuduals on a "first come, first serve" basis. We are not always able to place all individuals. Individiuals will not be charged unless a team is found for them. Your spot "in line" is not guaranteed without a payment holding your spot. In coed leagues, a guy has a MUCH better chance of finding a team if signing up with a female. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

 
 

What happens if I am not placed on a team?

 

In the rare event we do not have room to place you on a team, we'll keep your name on a list if a spot opens up or for the following season. Plus, we do not charge the league fee until we actually place you on a team.

 

What if I have a partial team but am short players?

 

Go ahead and submit what you have and let us know if you need some players. We'll usually have a list of individuals looking to get on a team and we'll fill out your team for you. 

 

If I am putting in a team, how many players can I have?

 

Each league and/or location has a set ROSTER SIZE. Your team is expected to have at least this number of players. Should you not have this nubmer signed up by the deadline, Kaboom reserves the right to either fill your team or cancel your team. Get more info on TEAM SIZE POLICIES HERE.

 

If I played last season, should I assume I am on a team the following season?

 

NO. Each season is different and separate. Either your captain needs to add you to the team again or you need to sign up on your own again.

 

How can I sign up and pay?

 

There are a number of ways to sign up and pay. The easiest is online on our secure registration page. Just choose what league or leagues your are signing up for, enter your personal information, and submit your credit card info. We'll contact you via email 3-4 days before the league starts with your first game time, team information, and other details. You can also sign up and pay at our events or call. 

 

What if I don't register and pay by the deadline?

 

If you don't register and pay by the deadline, you may not get on a team of your choosing, or get on a team at all depending on availability. 

 

If I register by the deadline am I guaranteed a spot in the league?

 

No - we are first come, first serve. Many of our leagues sell out BEFORE the deadline. Sign up early as possible to guarantee your spot.

 

What other events do you have?

 

Kaboom also offers other events and outing to keep you busy. We have events such as bowling nights, kickball and putt-putt tournaments, baseball and hockey game outings, happy hours, and trips. 

 

What does the price of a league include?

 

Once you pay your league fee, everything else is included...no more hidden fees. Most leagues include 6-7 regular season games plus a tournament at the end. The tournament champs get prizes. Leagues include paid referees and everyone gets a team t-shirt (excluding certain sports). Standings, stats, and schedules are kept up-to-date online.

 

What do I need to do if I am captain of a team?

 

Being a captain of a team entails a number of responsibilities. Basically acting as a representative for your team on the field and with the league office. You can see a list of responsibilities online here.

 

Do the league champions win anything?

 

YES! The league champion prize varies from season to season. Each winning team wins a $10 gift card from our partner bar and seasonal swag. 

 

What if it is raining on the night I play?

 

Do not assume the games are canceled if it is raining where you are. Check the website notices and/or facebook page for rainout info. We try our best to get games in and may wait until closer to game time to cancel a game. And please remember, sometimes game cancellation is out of our control. We use a number of city fields where the city will close the field due to the weather, even though you may think it is playable. More detailed info in on our weather page HERE.

 

What happens if I get injured?

 

Participants play with Kaboom at their own risk. Athletic endeavors can be inherently dangerous. Kaboom does not provide health insurance to any players and does not refund players' fees if they are injured - nor are refunds given if you move, schedule changes, don't like your team, etc...sorry! Players should know the risks and think twice about playing if they do not have health insurance coverage.

 

How can I get your newsletter and e-mail alerts?

 

Go to our mailing list page to submit your name and email address and you'll get our online newsletter and keep you up-to-date on events and leagues.

 

Do you need help?

 

Always! We are always looking for qualified referees for all of our leagues. Also, we need league coordinators to help run the leagues out at the fields. Interested, click here to submit your interest. Plus, we always need volunteers at our happy hours and signups at the first night of a league. Volunteers can earn free sports with the hours they put in.

 

What if I have a business that wants to advertise with Kaboom?

 

There are many ways for businesses to partner with Kaboom. We offer advertising spots on our website or shirts at very inexpensive prices and commitments as short as a month. Plus you can become a club sponsor by offering discounts to our members and get a link on our sponsors page on the website.
