About Southern Sports Leagues

southernsportsleaguesWe were formed almost two years ago when two friends were having a drink at Henry’s Uptown bar. We were frustrated with the adult sports in the New Orleans area and wanted something better. Out of that conversation, Southern Sports Leagues was born. SSL started out with just two softball leagues in August of 2012 when a tropical storm hit new orleans and wiped out one of our fields at the City Park softball quad. Right off the bat, we were met with adversity forcing us to cancel one of the leagues. Shortly after that, SSL began to expand and had over 2,000 players in 20 leagues in only its first year.

SSL is a league run by lifelong Rec Sports athlete Steve Lindsey, who has had experience running sports leagues for several other organizations before venturing out on his own. Steve brings over 20 years in Rec Sports experience, stemming from playing at the highest levels in college flag football and competing for a national championship, to playing travel softball and kickball at the highest levels. In an era where leagues are run by corporate giants or bureaucratic city organizations, SSL brings a breath of fresh air. We are a one stop shop for all your social sports needs.
