We are proud to be Utah’s first adult coed social sports club. Let me explain how that came to be. I’m Dave and I was raised right here in Salt Lake City. At 18 I moved to Richmond, Virginia to get an education and become a man. Mission accomplished. Since then I’ve been living and working a full-time 9-5 corporate job in Richmond. So what?
Several years ago, while living in Richmond, VA, the River City Sport and Social Club (RCSSC) was the backdrop for some of the most fun/wild/embarrassing/empowering times I had while living outside of Utah. And I, along with 1,500+ other people, loved every minute of it.
After a few years of living and working in Richmond, I grew tired of my corporate existence so I decided to part ways with Virginia and look for work back home in SLC. Along with a job search I started looking for a Social Sports league comparable to the one I had enjoyed so much. After finding the right one my plan was going to organize a team as a way to reconnect with a bunch of friends I’d lost touch with since college.
Many Internet clicks later I came to a startling realization – it didn’t exist. Unsure of myself I spent several days of asking SLC friends and serious Internet excavation and still no leagues. Light bulb! Someone needed to start a league so the SLC community could experience the fun thousands in Richmond were being treated to on a weekly basis. I could be that someone.
Inspired by the thought of an outdoor livelihood involving sports and socializing I spent the next 60 days alongside two great friends, Ben and Jimmy, getting Beehive SSC off the ground. Many forms, phone calls and meetings later we are excited for you to experience the best (and only) Adult Social Sports league in the Wasatch Valley.
Since our first league in June of 2010 we’ve grown immensely, THANK YOU! As a result we’re so excited for what 2014 holds! We’re poised to triple our organized leagues to 9 and show over 2000 Salt Lakers a ton of fun in the process. We are also planning to organize multiple single day social events that should be a blast. You can see the whole calendar of leagues and events here. Budweiser has been the official beer sponsor for all of our leagues for the past several years! We couldn’t ask for a better partner, the people at Budweiser are awesome to work with! THANK YOU!
With our story in mind if you remember nothing else from this page, remember this:
We will work tirelessly to bring you the most fun social sports experience of your adult life…AND to coordinate even more post-game fun at Utah’s best bars & restaurants.
That oath alone means nothing, which is why we back it up with our “Fun Guarantee.” It’s simple – if you register for one of our sports leagues and don’t have fun we’ll let you try another sport for free!
UPDATE: We turned 2 years old in May 2013! Read an open letter on a blog to everyone who has even been touched by Beehive Sports
We have a lot to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving from Beehive.
