ZogSports SF looking for Georgetown teams for fall sports!

ZogSports has just announced their fall sports and we want to get some Georgetown alumni out there to play! This fall, they’re running volleyball, dodgeball, football, indoor soccer, and outdoor soccer all at Galileo Academy in the Marina.

To register just visit www.ZogSports.com/SF and click on the sport you’d like to play. There are two options when registering, Team and Individual.
  • Team: The full team price covers up to the first 12-15 roster members (depending on the sport). A full team is typically the cheaper per-person option and it also gives the captain control of the roster.
  • Individual: If you choose the individual option you’ll be placed on the same team with other free agents. If you’d like to play with other Georgetown alumni just put their name and emails in the Teammates section and/or include Georgetown in the comments section and ZogSports will team you up with other alumni who sign up.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the General Manager, Nick Cruit, at nick@zogsportssf.com.
