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 one-of-a-kind 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'm currently participating in my third league this year with S3 Leagues, and it's been a fantastic experience. With a large number of combinations available and the added fun of a partner bar, S3 truly offers an engaging sports and social experience. I'd highly suggest S3 Leagues to anyone eager to join and make new friends.

HIGHLY recommend.

  • I have been playing with S3 volleyball and softball leagues for several years. My friends and I love these leagues because they are the right amount of competition while still having a chill social atmosphere. Ben is always great to coordinate with and provides tons of information and opportunities to socialize beyond just the games. The sponsor bars are also always great locations!

  • I have arranged for multiple teams to play in different S3 leagues, many at the same time. This league is incredibly organized both during the registration process and at the actual games. You can really tell that Ben and his team care about everyone having a good time, and S3 clearly has an established relationship with all the vendors that they work with to host games. Our team members have had nothing but great things to say and I doubt I'll use a different league service in Chicago again. They make it too easy!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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!
