Team of the Week

The CSSC Team of the Week program is all about recognizing teams that are dedicated to positive sportsmanship and playing with a fun-first mentality.

How it works: Each week throughout the season the CSSC will recognize one team for their positive attitude and great sporting behavior. To be eligible, teams must first be nominated for the Lady Bing Award in a given season. All nominated teams will then have a chance to submit a photo and a short biography in order to be eligible for a Team of the Week Prize.

Prize: Each Team of the Week winner will get a shout-out on CSSC social media and also receive a $100 gift card to a CSSC Sponsor Bar.

You can help us recognize great sportsmanship by nominating a team for the Lady Bing Award. Click here to nominate a team!

Balls Out
Captain: Matt Jerram 

Night/Div/Sport: Tuesday Recreational Slo-Pitch
Seasons in the CSSC: 10+
Nominated by: Antonio Corbo
History: While each of us love playing softball, the ability to do it with each other is what keeps us coming back.  While some faces have changed over time the core of our team goes back over 10 years with the CSSC.  While we don't have nicknames for each other you can earn one in a hurry because we like nothing better than to give each other a hard time.  Win or lose our bench can be a tough place to be if you aren't there to have fun.  We have suffered a whole lot of losing seasons as well as some winning ones and we have had enjoyed them all equally.  As long as it's ball season and we have a team we are happy.

Pet Peeves
Captain: Jeff Boucher

Night/Div/Sport: Sunday Recreational Ball Hockey
Seasons in the CSSC: 5+
Nominated by: Adnan Alibhai
History: Pet Peeves has played with the CSSC for over 3 years. We started as a team of veterinarians (hence the team name “Pet Peeves”) that wanted to get together and play floor hockey. We have since grown and changed to include a variety of other professionals but we still have a few “vets” from the original team (pun intended). We enjoy the sport and the team comradery, which is why we keep playing.

The Amigos

Seasons in the CSSC: 1 
Nominated by: Josh Idowu
History: Meet The Amigos! We are an enthusiastic soccer team playing in the Summer 2.0 league. Our team was born after a few of us girls got tired of watching the guys play sports from the sidelines. So, we decided to play/learn a new sport all together! This is our first season playing soccer together with the CSSC, and we can’t wait to keep playing!
