You are never too old to play games with your friends. Growing up is no fun, so come and relive your playground days with us. We are looking for a couple more teams to fill our Adult Co-Ed Kickball League on Thursday evenings at the West Allis Athletic Complex on 117th and Cleveland Ave.  Kickball game times will start at 630 pm, so there is plenty of time to get over to the fields after work. Join us for some fun in the (remaining) sun that we have left this year.   Contact Dustin at  See you on the field!
