Since we are in the practice stage of the season, let’s take a look at the progress some of the ISL teams have made and where they need to go from here.
Kennesaw State- KSU is in the process of finalizing all of their club team paperwork and starting to add to their official roster. They have an information session coming up where they hope to add a few new players and prepare for practices.
Georgia Tech- Right now Tech is working on their charter status as a student organization on campus. They are currently a pending organization and are looking to be an active organization within two months. Practices have been taking place twice a week on campus and the roster is up to about 17 or 18 players.
Georgia College and State University- The team at GCSU has started the initial work to become an organization on campus. They will not participate in any activities this year, but they should be a full contributor by the start of next semester.
All of these teams are doing their part to grow the game of speedball. There are exciting times ahead and be on the look out for new ISL teams in the coming months!
After all of the preparation, we are very excited over the plans to finally have the first ever collegiate speedball game. The tentative date for this is around the second or third weekend of March and will take place at Kennesaw State University. Both teams have already started preparing for the game and we expect the excitement to increase closer to game day. This first game is just the start of the season, as we will be having games every weekend when April rolls around! I’ll update the schedule when dates are finalized.
