December is here and that means it’s time for the final countdown of the 2017 sports year! It’s certainly been an action-packed year for the Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Sports Commission. We’ve seen many tournaments and championships, including USSSA baseball and USSSA softball tournaments. An NCAA Women’s Volleyball team scored a championship trophy and, most recently, an SEC Women’s Soccer team also won their coveted championship title.
But wait – there’s still more to come before we look ahead to our busy and exciting 2018 schedule. Check out these December events to top off the 2017 action:
2017 USSSA Hall of Fame Weekend – Catch youth players as they compete as individuals and as teams at the Orange Beach Sportsplex on December 9 and 10. The young athletes will also receive end-of-the-year awards.
2017 Make it to the Line 4-Mile Run Walk & 1-Mile Fun Run – On your mark, get set, GO to the Make it to the Line starting line at the Flora-Bama Lounge & Oyster Bar on December 30. Participants will have an opportunity to work off some of those extra holiday pounds by running, jogging or walking to the finish line of the 4-mile run/walk or the 1-mile fun run. Whether you choose to compete by yourself or form a team of up to three members, you’ll have a blast at this event. Run packets with T-shirts and goodies will be given to racers. Trophies will be awarded three deep for all age groups in both the run and the walk.
