Full teams join all the time, plus we create free agent teams in each coed league that include other players around the same age. These teams aren't made until all spots are filled, so sign up and request to play with friends while there's space and you're guaranteed to play together. Or join solo to meet new people! We pride ourselves in running the most well organized, personalized and FUN leagues that you'll ever be a part of. And we're the ONLY leagues where ALL teams walk to the same nearby bar for post-game hang outs and exclusive specials! So what are you waiting for!? JOIN US to experience what makes S3 "More than just a league".

Every League Crazy Fun, Every Time.

Be active and get social!

Countless new friendships, relationships, champions & great memories made --- plus tons of S3 weddings and babies!

We are welcoming & unique.

We only offer a handful of leagues every session to ensure that each is run with the care and attention you deserve. You'll have a unique league experience where meeting new people and being social are part of the fun. Getting together with the same group of teams every week at games and our sponsor bar creates an environment where relationships easily form!

We level the playing field.

In any league, some teams are better than others. So for playoffs in S3, teams are placed into multiple divisions based on regular season records for final day tournaments. This creates a more fair and balanced playoffs where similarly skilled teams compete to be league champs. And the winner of EACH division gets a team party at your sponsor bar to celebrate the season!

We have the lowest fees.

We are an independently run and locally focused organization. We're proud to offer the lowest team and player fees while making it our mission to provide what we're consistently told is the best league experience in town! We're truly grateful to all the great teams and players that have chosen to join us over the years to help make this Simply Social Sports experiment a lasting success.

What People Are Saying

  • I absolutely love playing in the S3 leagues. This is by far my favorite sports company to go through because they are incredibly accommodating and have major perks. My first league I did, they had a bus that took us from the beach to a bar. 10/10 league

  • I have done a summer and a fall kickball league through S3 and they were really well organized and fun! I joined as an individual (free agent) and I love that the org emphasizes that this is a social league and doesn't focus on being amazing at sports! I have made a great group of friends through my teams 🙂

  • I have played in S3 leagues year round (softball, volleyball, and bowling) for the past few years. I am continually impressed with Ben's organization skills and dedication to the league's participants. The sponsor bars are always attentive to those participating in the leagues. Whether you are an individual looking to join as a "free agent" to meet new friends or have a group of friends that you want to play with, I could not recommend S3 sports more!

  • Been playing S3 summer and fall softball for ~7 years now and every one has been great. The league is super organized and management is very accessible and prompt at answering questions, helping out, etc. Unlike other leagues, S3 is a perfect mix of competitive and fun -- 99% of people who play S3 are good people and the league feels more like a family than some giant faceless softball corporation.

  • Highly recommend! Not knowing anyone in Chicago when I first moved, this was the best way to meet people. I joined a random kickball team in 2016 and today those people are still some of my best friends!

  • S3 is a great league! It is inexpensive, and Ben has been more than accommodating and flexible in helping with getting my teams signed up every year. Solid competition, and you can't beat the bar deals--no other league I've played in offers them!
